The company noted that Eades' relationships with global Fortune 500 executives, partners, investors and analysts complement the engineering powerhouse duo of co-founders Roger Lian and Michael Shieh.
In their new roles as vice president of engineering and CTO, respectively, Lian and Shieh will continue to innovate upon enterprise security while Tim drives company growth.
Eades has experience leading high growth security and enterprise software companies with successful exit strategies.

Eades currently sits on the board of White Sky, Vorstack Corp. and Cake4Kids.
