Daniel Druker Joins Zscaler as Chief Marketing Officer

Seasoned Internet Security Executive to Drive Global Marketing Initiatives for Leading Cloud Security Provider

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced the appointment of Daniel Druker as Chief Marketing Officer. Druker will be responsible for Zscaler's global marketing activities, including market strategy and positioning, branding, digital marketing, demand generation, product marketing and channel and partner enablement. Reporting directly to the CEO, Druker will be based at Zscaler's headquarters in San Jose, California.

"Dan brings exceptional marketing and business expertise at a very pivotal time for the company and industry alike," said Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO, Zscaler. "Zscaler's unique innovations have not only set a new bar for corporate Internet security, but also redefined the competitive landscape for Cloud Security providers. Dan's enviable track record in creating markets, driving disruptive innovation and accelerating growth are exactly what this company needs to become the next anchor brand in security."

Druker has more than 25 years of experience in executive sales and marketing roles at technology leaders, which includes helping to drive more than $3 billion in IPO and M&A transactions. Prior to joining Zscaler, he served as Chief Marketing Officer at cloud marketing company MyBuys, SVP of Marketing and Business Development at cloud ERP leader Intacct and EVP of Global Marketing at cloud security innovator Postini (acquired by Google). Dan has also held senior marketing and sales roles at IBM, Trigo Technologies, Hyperion Solutions, Arbor Software and Oracle.

"What Jay and team have built at Zscaler is game changing," said Druker. "With more than 12 million users at 5,000 corporations and governments, it is mind boggling to think that they have only scratched the surface of the inevitable shift of the $33 billion security market from hardware appliances to Software-as-a-Service and cloud computing. And if the explosive growth of the last few years is any indication, the next stage of Zscaler is going to be one incredible ride."

Druker earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and an MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA. He's been asked to speak on panels and keynoted at numerous industry conferences and events around the globe -- speaking on SaaS, cloud computing, security, Internet privacy, governance, mobility, RFID, business intelligence and technology futures.

The world of IT security has undergone tremendous transformation, sparked by the consumerization of the enterprise, the adoption of cloud computing and the evolution of the sources of threats from hackers to organized crime and governments. While traditional security appliances were developed in a time when none of this existed, Zscaler's modern cloud security platform enables businesses to embrace innovation securely, while delivering a superior user experience. Just as cloud applications transformed the market for CRM, Zscaler is transforming the market for Internet security.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
