SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology Corporation, the leader in secure enterprise mobility, announced today that its Vice President and General Counsel, Ron Vaisbort, has been named the "Best General Counsel in a Private Company" by the Silicon Valley Business Journal in its annual Bay Area Corporate Counsel Awards.
"We are thrilled to see Ron recognized as a leader in the technology and legal community of Silicon Valley," said Christy Wyatt, President and CEO of Good. "Ron's expertise and guidance have been invaluable as we have significantly grown our business and product offerings and protected our position as the pioneer in secure enterprise mobility solutions."
Vaisbort joined Good in January 2011 and has spearheaded the company's efforts to protect, enhance, and maximize the company's patent portfolio.
