Singapore, Aug 26th 2014 – Ex-General Manager of StopTheHacker at CloudFlare, Inc., Ridley Ruth, has joined Dropmysite, as their new Chief Operating Officer. This addition sees Dropmysite strengthening their position as the leader in cloud backup and archiving.
As Dropmysite continues to build quality products and sign up partnership deals around the world, it attracts more seasoned industry veterans to join. Ruth, will bring more than 15 years of experience in strategic partnerships and product management to the business.
“The importance of backing up your company’s website data has never been more important with 30,000 websites being hacked daily,” says Ruth. “Many customers cannot afford expensive security software to protect their website however for a few dollars a month Dropmysite makes it as easy as one click for customers to restore to a backup copy of their website or database when hacked.”
Ruth is among other experienced personnel on board like CEO, Charif El Ansari (ex-Google). Ruth’s move will bring even more credibility to the company that aims to backup the Internet.
“Ridley was a natural choice as COO with his stellar track record and deep relevant experience. We are thrilled to having Ridley on board as Dropmysite rapidly expands its global footprint,” says Charif El Ansari, CEO of Dropmysite.
In 2012, Ruth was the VP of Sales at StopTheHacker, a SaaS based website security company. The firm built an artificial intelligence engine for detecting unknown malware on websites that can automatically remove malicious code as well as scan a companies’ Facebook wall.
With Ruth’s help, the company’s prominence caught the attention of CloudFlare, who acquired it 10 months ago. CloudFlare operates a highly-available global network that has security measures built into every layer and regularly clocks in lightning-fast speeds. In the acquisition, Ruth was appointed General Manager at StopTheHacker.
Along with his impressive resume, huge array of applicable skill sets and wide network of contacts, Ruth will build upon the great work already done on email, website and database cloud backups.
“I look forward to working with the leadership team to position Dropmysite for growth and enhance the way we serve our customers and present our company to the marketplace,” said Ruth. “I believe that Dropmysite can become the world leader in website, email and mobile backup technologies,”
