Startup Veteran Mitch Haile Brings More Than 15 Years of Software Design, Product Management and Executive Experience to Conjur to Lead Product Direction
WALTHAM, Mass. – Aug. 19, 2015 – Conjur, Inc., provider of security orchestration software, has named Mitch Haile its new Vice President, Products. Previously, Mitch was a consulting vice president at Cobalt Iron, an enterprise cloud backup company, where he led the development of the company’s proprietary software products and patent portfolio. He is responsible for managing Conjur’s product roadmap and product marketing.
“Companies developing and deploying at Web-scale know that they need to move fast, adopt the DevOps culture and move to continuous integration and delivery to remain competitive,” said Elizabeth Lawler, CEO at Conjur. “The challenge to this approach is being able to properly secure across a variety of point solutions and DevOps tools, creating gaps that leave organizations vulnerable with respect to security, including audit and compliance. With Mitch leading our product team at Conjur, he will help us to continue to grow and firmly establish Conjur as a foundational technology for current and future generations of IT systems.”
Before Cobalt Iron, Mitch was CTO and VP, Engineering at Connected Data, a company that makes storage file sharing hardware and software for business users. He was CTO and Co-Founder of Pancetera Software Inc., which built virtual machine data protection products for VMware environments, acquired by Quantum (NYSE:QTM) in 2011. Mitch was among the first ten engineers hired at Data Domain (IPO 2007, sold to EMC in 2009), where he built and led the System Management group for four years. He is a named inventor on over two dozen patents pending and granted. Mitch earned a degree in computer science from The College of Wooster where he was an Arthur Holly Compton scholar.
“I am thrilled to work with the outstanding team at Conjur to drive the product roadmap and contribute to its already impressive growth,” said Mitch Haile. “The DevOps security market is growing at an enormous rate and I look forward to being able to help enterprises with their security orchestration and compliance needs.”
