April 09, 2013|By Scott Dance, The Baltimore Sun

Columbia cybersecurity firm Sourcefire Inc. named John Becker, a longtime member of its board of directors, as the company's new CEO on Monday.

Becker comes to Sourcefire from a position as CEO of ScienceLogic, a Reston, Va., company that sells network monitoring software and services. Before that, he led a series of information security companies that were each sold.

He has served on Sourcefire's board since 2008.

Becker steps in after Sourcefire founder and chief technology officer Martin F. Roesch led the company on an interim basis for nearly a year. Former CEO John Burris retired in October after taking medical leave to be treated for colon cancer.
