Cybersecurity solutions provider, Comodo Cybersecurity, a company based in Clifton, New Jersey with a 20-year history of protecting the most sensitive data for both businesses and consumers globally, has hired Steve Subar as president and CEO – to lead the company in its next stages of growth.
Steve Subar joins Comodo Cybersecurity with more than 30 years of experience with “winning” technology companies as a founder, CEO and board member. Most recently, Mr. Subar was managing director at z2m4 Advisors, a management consulting firm serving venture capital and private equity investors in cybersecurity, IoT and communications technology.
“While cyber threats become more sophisticated every day, businesses spend billions attempting to thwart bad actors,” said Steve Subar. “A scan of the headlines makes clear that today’s widely adopted techniques are a failure. Prevention is impossible; businesses must be enabled to accept risk with the confidence that threats can do no harm.”
“I am thrilled to join Comodo Cybersecurity and build upon the rich foundation of market-leading technology while accelerating growth,” added Mr. Subar. “With more than 1,000 employees worldwide and vast resources, Comodo Cybersecurity is uniquely positioned to become the new standard for how consumers, enterprises, governments and service providers protect and defend themselves, their citizens and customers from cyber threats.”
Previously, Subar founded Open Kernel Labs, a developer of “military-grade” security solutions deployed on more than 1.6 billion mobile devices and acquired by General Dynamics. Earlier, as a senior executive with Mobius Management Systems, Subar was instrumental in driving the company’s growth from $3 million in revenue to an IPO.
“Steve has a proven track record of successfully leading companies in transition, and in delivering significant growth in highly competitive markets,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Chairman of the Comodo Group. “His inspiring leadership and decades of experience give me great confidence that our vision to secure and protect enterprises everywhere they live – in the LAN, web and cloud – will be immensely successful.”
Steve Subar holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing with a concentration in Computer and Information Systems from Miami University. In addition, Subar serves on the advisory board for Northwestern University’s Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and is chairman of the Cyber Threat Intelligence Network.
