After this, Alex co-founded another company called Arcsight (ARST). He served as the director of this company as well. This company dealt with cyber security and eventually went public. The company was later sold to Hewlett-Packard for an impressive $1.5B. However, this was not the end of Alex Hern as an entrepreneur. He went on to co-found CloudShield where he also served as the director. This was a network security company which was eventually sold to SAIC- an even larger technology and engineering company that specializes in government and commercial products.
