Exabeam, the market leader in Security Intelligence solutions, today announced that Tony Kolish, former EVP of Global Managed Services and Customer Support at FireEye, has joined the Exabeam executive team. Kolish will lead the next phase of Exabeam’s expansion within the SIEM market, building out new services offerings via an expanded global team.
Prior to Exabeam, Kolish spent five years at FireEye as EVP of Global Managed Services and Customer Support, where he scaled the services team from 12 to 450 professionals and seven operations and support centers around the globe. He launched FireEye’s Security as a Service, growing it to over $80 million. Prior, Kolish spent nine years at EMC, most recently as Senior Vice President of Global Customer Services. In this role, he led EMC’s 5,500-person field service and support organization, managing an operating budget of over $1 billion.
Exabeam has grown rapidly since launching in 2014. The company built on its early leadership in the User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) market to expand into the multi-billion dollar SIEM market earlier this year. In January 2017, Exabeam announced its Security Intelligence Platform (SIP), offering cost effective log management and automated incident response in addition to existing analytics-driven threat hunting and detection. Strong demand for these products has driven a need for increased global services offerings.
“Exabeam is experiencing the same rapid growth and high demand we had at FireEye,” said Kolish. “I look forward to helping the company build out the necessary pieces for continued success. The market, product, team, and timing are just right.”
“From day one, our vision for Exabeam was to build out a modern platform for security management, delivering where legacy SIEM products were failing,” said Nir Polak, founder and CEO of Exabeam. “We’ve successfully hit every milestone in the past three years, and Tony will help lead us through those ahead. We are very excited to have him aboard.”
