Carlsbad, Calif. - Sept. 19, 2005 Preventsys Inc., the leader in security risk management and automated compliance reporting, today announced that Gordon Eubanks has joined the company as chairman of the board.
“In order for companies to protect intellectual property and confidential customer data they must focus on preventing problems, not reacting to them,” said Gordon Eubanks, chairman of Preventsys. “Preventsys uniquely enables customers to get ahead of critical security issues and fix them in priority order before they become serious problems. With Preventsys, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

He served as president and chief executive officer of Symantec, where for fifteen years he successfully positioned the security giant as the leader in the industry. After Symantec, Eubanks served as president and chief executive officer of Oblix, Inc., where he developed a small start-up into one of the leading players of enterprise identity management and web access solutions until its acquisition by Oracle Corporation in March 2005.
