INKY Technology Corporation, an anti-phishing startup, today announced that John Lyons has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) to continue the company’s exponential growth in the cybersecurity arena.
“This new appointment further strengthens INKY’s management team as the company focuses on revenue generation and expansion globally,” said Dave Baggett, CEO and Founder of INKY. “Lyons adds important, diverse expertise to INKY’s management team with an impressive resume and extensive experience as a driving force for the company’s revenue stream.”

John Lyons comes to INKY with more than 25 years of experience in technology sales and sales leadership. Before joining the company, John ran worldwide sales for ThreatConnect.

INKY’s anti-phishing solution, INKY Phish Fence, uses novel computer vision and anomaly detection algorithms to identify and block both brand forgery emails and spear phishing attempts. INKY Phish Fence also adds helpful warning banners to unusual or suspicious emails, giving users specific guidance on potentially problematic messages. Users can report phishing emails via a “Report This Email” link added to each email. INKY Phish Fence works on any endpoint via any mail client, with no additional client software required.
INKY Phish Fence integrates directly into Microsoft Office 365® in minutes, and provides IT/Security teams a rich reporting and measurement dashboard to assess blocked threats and reported phishing emails. INKY Phish Fence supports Google G Suite® implementations as well.
