eEye Shifts HQ To Phoenix

Irvine-based eEye, a provider of Internet security software and services, said this week that it has shifted its headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona, along with the hiring of a new executive team. According to eEye, it has opened a new "key location" in Phoenix, where it plans to triple its current staff. The shift comes as the firm has pulled in a number of former executives of Arizona-based NetPro Computing, which was acquired by Quest Software a few years ago. eEye is now headed by Kevin Hickey, who assumed the role of CEo in December of 2009. The firm also recently named Marc Maiffrett, a co-founder of the firm, as Chief Technology Officer.
