Dave Gruber

Principal Analyst, Ransomware, SecOps & Services


Principal Analyst Dave Gruber helps product marketing and management leaders develop winning strategies in highly competitive markets.

Prior to joining Enterprise Strategy Group, Dave held executive leadership roles at successful endpoint and application security companies. Most recently, he was the VP of Product Marketing at Carbon Black through its IPO, and previously he was VP of Products at Black Duck Software (acquired by Synopsys) where he led product marketing and product management.

In his current analyst role, Dave researches CISOs’ and security teams’ most pressing needs, working together with security vendors to develop successful product and go-to-market strategies, positioning, and messaging. Building on a strong technical background with early roles in enterprise application development, Dave became interested in figuring out why some products were more successful than others, which eventually led him to senior roles in software product management and product marketing.
