Bluebox Security Hires Vice President of Sales to Capitalize on Growing Marketing Demand

Kevin Korpak Brings Over 20 Years Experience Driving Revenue for High-Growth Technology Companies

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2015) - Bluebox Security®, the mobile app security and management company, today announced that Kevin Korpak has joined the company as vice president of sales. Korpak will further accelerate Bluebox's growth and allow the company to meet the demand to secure apps for the extended enterprise.

Korpak brings more than 20 years of experience in building and accelerating revenue to Bluebox. Prior to joining Bluebox, Korpak served as senior sales leader for AnyPresence, Inc., a leading mobile platform-as-a-service company, where he established a go-to-market strategy to increase sales and revenues across industries including financial, healthcare and technology. Prior to AnyPresence, Korpak drove sales strategy and achieved record revenue growth for Layer7, leading the company through a successful acquisition by CA Technologies.

"Kevin has a proven track record of successfully building customer focused sales teams and driving revenue for emerging leaders in information security," said Pam Kostka, CEO of Bluebox Security. "His deep experience creating and executing programs for revenue generation and sales makes him the perfect candidate to fuel our expansion, while his roots as a hacker make him an ideal fit for our security-first organization."

In 2014, more than 68 percent of global organizations were impacted by a mobile security breach. By 2017, 75 percent of these breaches will be the result of mobile application insecurities, largely in the way users configure or set up mobile apps. Mobile evolves quickly with new apps appearing daily and updating weekly, yet security is often an afterthought. With vulnerabilities on the rise and three in four applications expected to fail basic security tests this year, organizations face the challenge that devices and apps are continuously compromised, leaving corporate data at risk. Bluebox addresses this issue by providing a solution that creates trust in untrusted mobile environments.

"Bluebox is providing enterprise customers an innovative way to quickly apply holistic security to custom and third party apps," said Kevin Korpak. "The mobile security market is one of the most dynamic in the industry today and I am pleased to join Bluebox's visionary team as they help customers securely move at the speed of mobile."
