High-speed network encryption vendor Senetas announced last week the appointment of Julian Fay as CTO, effective immediately. Fay was one of the founders of CTAM, which developed technology that now forms the basis of the Senetas Encryption Security Platform, according to company officials.
In a prepared statement, Senetas CEO John DuBois said Fay’s appointment gives him “company-wide responsibility for current and future product and services strategy and offerings…to ensure the company’s technology strategy serves its business strategy.”
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Senetas began as a venture capital firm called Secure ID-Net Ltd. The company invested in a number of technology vendors, including CTAM, and subsequently changed from a VC firm to a security vendor that designs and manufacturers high-speed network encryption products, according to the company. Senetas also provides professional consulting and training.
