Cylance appoints new CFO on back of 283% year-on-year revenue growth

​On the back of skyrocketing growth, Cylance has announced the appointment Brian Robins as chief financial officer (CFO).

The cybersecurity company completed another year of record growth, achieving:

  • 283 percent growth in overall revenue
  • 119 percent growth in overall bookings
  • 169 percent growth in the number of customers
  • Over 5 million endpoints sold
  • 171 percent growth in deals
  • 100 percent growth in the number of OEM partnerships

According to Cylance, Robins is a seasoned executive with more than 20 years of diverse experience in accounting, finance and treasury for security and other high-growth security and technology companies and is well-suited to guide Cylance through its next stage of growth.

“Brian is a top-tier finance executive who will add incredible experience to Cylance in the next phase of the company’s accelerated growth both domestically and internationally,” says Stuart McClure, chairman and CEO at Cylance and who Robins will report to. 

“Brian has a proven record of increasing company performance and will be critical in building out our financial infrastructure to support our continued hyper-growth and expansion into adjacent markets.”

Robins has a lengthy history in the game, coming to Cylance after serving as CFO at AlienVault. Before that he was vice president and CFO of Global Business Services at CSC and even earlier in his career, Robins was executive vice president and chief financial officer of Internet services company Verisign.

This list of executive level positions goes on, but Robins says he is looking forward to the next step in his career.

“I am excited to join Cylance and have the opportunity to contribute to the next phase of the company’s success,” Robins says.

“Cylance has disruptive technology, is experiencing hyper-growth in a large market, and has a really great team. Propelled by the power of artificial intelligence as a significant game-changer across nearly every industry vertical, Cylance is positioned to become a dominant player in the security space.”
