He has also held senior technical and management positions at AT&T UNIX System Laboratories and Stallion Technologies.

“Greg is a proven leader with a track record of driving growth and shareholder value,” said David W. Hanna, Chairman of the Board of Blue Coat. “Greg has the right combination of technical depth, market insight and managerial skills to enable Blue Coat to capitalize on its strong franchise in Web security and WAN optimization.”

“I am looking forward to joining Blue Coat and leading the team to expand Blue Coat’s market leadership,” said Greg Clark. “It is a great company with a long heritage of innovation, a terrific portfolio of assets and an impressive customer base.”
