SANTA MONICA, Calif. , Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuralIQ, a developer of cyber intelligence tools for information security, today announced the expansion of its global leadership team, headed by the appointment of Donnie Blanks as chief executive officer.
Blanks, former Executive Vice President of Sales and strategy for Perot Systems' government business unit, assumes the helm of NeuralIQ as the company continues to advance its industry presence and paradigm-shifting security technology in response to increasing global demand.
"It is very exciting to be part of a growing team that is driving the evolution of true cyber intelligence," Blanks said. "I am proud to join NeuralIQ and will focus my experience and leadership commitment on achieving a new level of growth and success in a highly dynamic and expanding world market. Events of the past week, where Russia launched a cyber attack on Georgia before firing the first shot or dropping the first bomb, are proof positive we're in the right business at the right time."
Blanks elaborated on the innovative approach that differentiates NeuralIQ in world markets today. "Traditional security is no longer able to hold its own against the overwhelming flood of new and highly targeted attacks," he said. "Security needs a new ally, one that learns from attackers in real time, exposing their tools, methods, and intentions before critical assets are compromised. NeuralIQ's real-time intrusion forensics systems deliver precisely that kind of intelligence and in the process make traditional security smarter and more agile."
According to Alen Capalik, CTO and founder of NeuralIQ, Donnie Blanks is a great fit for the leadership needs of the company at this stage of its development, as well as an important catalyst for its future growth.
"NeuralIQ has dedicated itself to delivering aggressive solutions that tip the balance of power away from attackers," said Alen Capalik, CTO and founder of NeuralIQ. "We are now poised to deliver these solutions to our federal and corporate clients, and we look forward to Donnie Blanks' leadership and expertise to help us get there."
