LogRhythm, the company powering the world’s most modern enterprise security operations centers (SOCs), today announced the appointment of Mark Logan as the company’s chief executive officer (CEO).
Logan is a seasoned executive with years of experience developing and executing growth-oriented go-to-market strategies for enterprise software and SaaS businesses. As CEO of LogRhythm, he will lead the company as it continues to drive innovation, expand its cloud-based security offerings and extend its market share and leadership in the security information and event management (SIEM), user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), network detection and response (NDR), and security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) markets.
“I am thrilled to step into this role and have the opportunity to work with an organization that has LogRhythm’s impressive track record of innovation and market leadership,” said Logan. “LogRhythm’s customers run some of the most sophisticated and effective enterprise security operations in the world, and the LogRhythm platform is an indispensable part of how they detect, investigate and neutralize advanced threats. I look forward to working closely with our customers and business partners to drive our shared success to new levels.”
Logan has a lengthy track record of operational excellence and brings a wealth of executive management experience to his new leadership role at LogRhythm. Most recently, Logan served as president of Attunity (formerly NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of data integration and big data management software solutions and a division of Qlik. Previously, he also served in the CEO roles of WealthEngine, a data-driven consumer analytics business, and Rivermine, a business analytics company. Logan has also served as chief operating officer of Emptoris, now part of IBM, and in divisional general manager roles with PeopleSoft and JD Edwards.
“Mark has decades of experience successfully building and leading global enterprise software and SaaS companies,” said Chip Virnig, a partner at Thoma Bravo. “That experience, combined with his focus on customer success, solution innovation and company culture, makes him the ideal leader for LogRhythm. Mark has a tremendous reputation as an executive manager, and he shares our vision for the SIEM, UEBA, NDR and SOAR markets where LogRhythm continues to be a trailblazer.”
Logan’s appointment is the latest in a series of recent executive hires at LogRhythm, including the addition of Sue Buck as senior vice president of engineering and Barry Capoot as chief financial officer.
The announcement of Logan’s appointment comes just ahead of the Black Hat security industry conference in Las Vegas, where LogRhythm will be exhibiting at booth #614, and LogRhythm’s own global user conference, RhythmWorld, to be held in Denver, Colorado, August 20th through the 22nd.
