RedSeal Networks Appoints Board Chairman Ray Rothrock Chief Executive Officer

RedSeal Networks, the leader in network infrastructure security management, today announced that Ray Rothrock, chairman of the board of directors, is appointed chief executive officer (CEO). Rothrock has served as the company’s board chairman since 2004. A renowned venture capitalist whose focus during the early years of the Internet was on infrastructure and security, Rothrock has an extraordinary track record in cyber security investments. Of particular note are IPOs of Check Point Software and Imperva, as well as successful exits such as Pedestal Software, Haystack Labs, Whole Security, Vontu, PGP, and others.

“You cannot secure what you cannot see on your network. Today’s networks are far more complex than ever before and the growing severity and alarming success rates of cyber attacks are on the rise,” said Rothrock. “It is paramount that enterprises and government agencies start getting a better handle on nefarious activities taking place across their complex network infrastructures. Hackers are using automated tools to break into corporate networks. RedSeal provides its customers with automated tools to discover and fix security problems before the hackers find them.”

During his 25-year tenure at Venrock, Rothrock launched the venture capital firm’s Internet practice in 1992 and his investments have landed him on the Forbes Midas List for 2012 and 2013 for his venture track record. Ray retired from Venrock in 2013. Ray currently serves on the boards of Check Point Software Technologies (a Venrock legacy investment), Appthority, CTERA Networks, CloudFlare, RedSeal Networks, and Tri Alpha Energy, all current Venrock portfolio companies.

"Ray has an incredible track record of helping lead and grow successful technology companies, particularly those in the cyber security sector and his passion seems to only grow stronger and more evident each day,” said Tench Cox of Sutter Hill Ventures, investor and board member at RedSeal Networks. “When you couple RedSeal Networks’ superior technology with Ray’s guidance and leadership, you undoubtedly have a winning combination that will enable this organization to continue to expand its footprint across enterprises and government agencies to help ease the woes of network operations and security operations pros who are looking for a better way to navigate their way to a safer corporate network.”

“We have the right technology at the right time. The exceptionally talented team here at RedSeal Networks is poised to take RedSeal to great success. I’m privileged to be asked to lead the team on that mission,” added Rothrock. Mr. Rothrock succeeds Dr. Parveen Jain, who announced his retirement earlier in the week. Jain served as President and CEO of RedSeal Networks since 2011.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
