AUSTIN, Texas (Apr. 7, 2011) – Uplogix, the leading provider of localized network management, announced today the appointment of Jim Cahill as Executive Vice-President of Sales & Marketing. Cahill comes to Uplogix from BreakingPoint Systems where he served as the president and co-founder establishing the funding, infrastructure, and teams that took the company from initial formation to market leader in four years.
At Uplogix, Cahill will manage market expansion for the Uplogix management platform, a patented approach to network infrastructure management that deploys locally to provide intensive monitoring, automated recovery and secure access to traditional IP and other communications devices.
“We’re excited to have Jim join the Uplogix team,” said Tom Goldman, Uplogix CEO. “As a veteran of the network technology space, his enthusiasm and interest in Uplogix is another endorsement of our products and the market potential itself.”
Before BreakingPoint, Cahill held various roles at TippingPoint Technologies including vice president and general manager for the federal business unit, chief financial officer, and general counsel. At TippingPoint, an industry leader in intrusion prevention systems, Cahill provided vision and leadership during startup and growth of the company through its purchase by 3Com.
“I’ve been familiar with Uplogix for several years,” said Jim Cahill, Uplogix EVP – Sales & Marketing. “Uplogix has an established product for automating network management in a way that nobody else can, that directly addresses some of the main costs of running a network. I’m looking forward to expanding our reach in the marketplace.”
Earlier in his career, before working inside high tech companies, Cahill worked with them as a corporate securities and technology attorney for a leading Dallas-based law firm. Mr. Cahill holds a Juris Doctorate and BBA in Finance from the University of Mississippi.
Uplogix provides the first fully integrated local management solution. Our co-located management appliances automate routine administration, maintenance and recovery tasks—securely and regardless of network availability. In comparison, traditional network and systems management depends on the network, uses multiple tools, and remains labor intensive. Uplogix puts the power of your most trusted IT administrator everywhere, all the time.
