San Francisco, Calif. — Feb. 23, 2022 — Corelight, provider of the industry’s leading open network detection and response (NDR) platform, today announced 200% year-over-year growth in new annual recurring revenue (NARR) in its latest quarter, signaling its position as a market leader in the NDR space. With offerings capable of disrupting attacks in physical, virtual and cloud environments, Corelight is providing customers with the level of visibility needed to perform next level analytics, faster investigations and expert threat hunting.
To support continued growth, the company also announced it has appointed former Exabeam executive, Rajiv Taneja as its first chief development officer, and Loree Farrar as senior vice president of people, to the leadership team.
“It is a privilege to serve and to learn from our customers and community, who are leading the adoption of evidence-based security,” said Brian Dye, CEO of Corelight. “The right evidence enables them to drive faster time-to-response decisions and fend off the latest attacks, and in turn what we learn enables us to share insights from these leading organizations across the broader market.
“To best fulfill our mission as we grow, I am delighted to welcome top notch talent to our executive team,” continued Dye. “Rajiv and Loree bring a combination of talent, cultural fit and domain expertise that are uniquely suited to Corelight. Both executives have helped companies and teams gracefully scale to meet the needs of both customers and employees. I am excited to work alongside each of them.”
As chief development officer, Taneja will be responsible for continuing to scale the Corelight Open NDR platform with new software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud offerings, expanding machine-learning and analytics capabilities, and ensuring Corelight delivers the right technical architecture, use cases and workflows that will help to meet and exceed customer expectations.
He joins Corelight from Exabeam where he led a global team responsible for the development of the company’s next generation SIEM and XDR platforms. Prior to Exabeam, Rajiv spent several years at Cisco as the vice president of engineering for the network and security group leading a global team with responsibility for Cisco's IoT, network virtualization, unified threat management, and enterprise routing products.
“With rapid evolution of hybrid environments and the increase in cyberthreats, Corelight is poised to drive significant adoption of solutions that provide the critical data evidence necessary to help security teams understand network and cloud activity,” said Taneja. “I am excited to join the team to help scale the company and create solutions that extend the on-premise product portfolio with both cloud and SaaS solutions that deliver powerful functionality with increased velocity.”
