IID Appoints Former McAfee Executive Kelly Haggerty as New Chief Product Officer

Haggerty to Spearhead Innovation for ActiveTrust, the World's Largest Commercial Exchange of Cyberthreat Data

TACOMA, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced it has expanded its leadership team with the addition of Kelly Haggerty as the company's first-ever Chief Product Officer. Haggerty will be responsible for overall product strategy, overseeing development, releases and management of IID's solutions, specifically of the company's threat intelligence management system, ActiveTrust.

"Since IID launched ActiveTrust just a half year ago, dozens of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies have connected to the platform, presenting new opportunities for product growth and innovation," said IID CEO Lars Harvey. "We're excited to bring on a seasoned executive like Kelly who has led product management at one of the world's best known cybersecurity companies to take ActiveTrust to the next level."

For almost the past decade, Haggerty was Vice President of Product at global computer security company McAfee, Inc. In this role, he directed worldwide development and execution of the company's security management platforms. Before McAfee, Haggerty served in executive management roles at a variety of companies including Actiance and SurfControl (eventually purchased by Websense).

"For businesses looking to secure themselves and their customers, the biggest challenge is cutting through the noise of all of the cyberthreat data, determining what is important to them, and then having that intelligence plug and play with any of their security appliances," said Haggerty. "ActiveTrust breaks these barriers and that's why I'm so excited to join IID to continue their long legacy of innovating ways to make the Internet a safer place."

ActiveTrust is the largest commercial exchange of cyberthreat data in the world, delivering normalized data, threat analytics and big data applications and services directly into customers' infrastructure in near real-time. The platform provides clear cyberthreat intelligence by acquiring threat data from thousands of trusted sources, then distilling, fusing and delivering that actionable insight to security teams and automated tools.

Haggerty's appointment is the latest in a series of recent IID executive additions. In July 2014, the company appointed former TripWire senior vice president Bob Dunne as Vice President of Sales. In January 2014, IID appointed Ben King as CFO, Merike Kaeo as CISO and Mark Foege as Vice President of Marketing.
