Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, announced today it has expanded its executive leadership team to help the company meet growing global demand for its modern application security solutions. In addition, the company announced it has moved to a larger headquarters facility to accommodate rapid headcount growth.

Data Theorem has named Silicon Valley entrepreneurial and technology executive Doug Dooley as its new Chief Operating Officer. In this role, Dooley is responsible for Data Theorem’s go-to-market and product strategies, and leads the company’s customer success, marketing, product management, and sales functions.

“Data Theorem has experienced rapid growth and global interest due to our unique modern application security solution, and we are gearing up for the next phase of the company’s growth,” said Himanshu Dwivedi, Data Theorem founder and CEO. “We are pleased to add Doug to our executive team to help us not only meet the demand we are seeing, but to continue to rapidly expand our presence. We will rely on his expertise and vast network of connections as we work to meet our customer demand and partner opportunities.”

The new larger facility is equipped to house Data Theorem’s expanding Engineering/R&D, Marketing, Sales and Customer Success teams.

Data Theorem’s TrustKit, a free open-source security library, is the industry’s first solution to significantly ease the equipping of mobile apps with Transport Layer Security (TLS) pinning. TrustKit delivers protection for data transmission in modern apps superior to security in web browser applications. TrustKit has a growing community of thousands of application developers, allowing it to further “anti-eavesdropping” as a new standard in mobile app security. Data Theorem recently announced that TrustKit has identified more than 100 million eavesdropping attempts on iOS and Android applications, where apps in active mode have blocked 100 percent of those attempts.
