AttackIQ has named Carl Wright as chief revenue officer. The San Diego-based cybersecurity software maker announced the move on Aug. 17.

Wright is former chief information security officer for the U.S. Marine Corps and has led sales teams at companies such as TrapX Security and Kidaro Inc.

AttackIQ describes its software as a continuous security validation product; it tests all the other software that its clients have deployed against hackers, to see if there are any holes that hackers can exploit. The business raised $8.8 million in series A funding in November. Participating investors included Index Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures and Telstra Ventures. Stephan Chenette is the company’s CEO.

In his new role, Wright will be responsible for driving global sales and marketing initiatives for AttackIQ.

Wright has a bachelor’s degree in management from Augsburg College and a master’s degree in information technology management from the Naval Postgraduate School.
