Data Protection Company Appoints CTO

PGP (GB) : 03 March, 2010  (Company News)
Experienced IT Security Industry executive joins PGP as Chief Technology Officer to bring the engineering team in line with the company's technical strategy
PGP Corporation has announced the appointment of John Adams as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Adams, a 30-year veteran in the security industry, has assumed the role at PGP Corporation as a result of the company's recent acquisition of ChosenSecurity. In his new role, Adams will be responsible for directing PGP Corporation's technology direction, integrating the two engineering team's efforts and technical strategy.

"John is a strategic addition to the PGP management team; he is an accomplished executive with an eye for innovation and product development," said Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of PGP Corporation. "His unique background will benefit PGP customers greatly as we continue to expand our global technology development strategy."

In his previous CTO role at ChosenSecurity, Adams was responsible for technical strategy and direction to engineering, operations, and product management. Prior to his tenure at ChosenSecurity, Adams served as executive vice president, engineering and operations at GeoTrust, and before that as CTO of GeoTrust. He was a key member of the acquisition team that culminated in the acquisition of GeoTrust by Verisign. GeoTrust was the fastest growing public certification authority before it was acquired by VeriSign.

Prior to GeoTrust, Adams was at RSA Security, where he served as Senior VP of Engineering, and later as CTO, managing the RSA Laboratories and working closely with the senior management team on the strategic direction of products and the company. Previously, Adams spent 20-years at Digital Equipment Corporation, later acquired by COMPAQ, where he held several technical director, group manager and vice presidential roles focused primarily on the development and strategy of the networking software and hardware products.

Adams holds several degrees; BA in Mathematics from Harvard University, BSc and MSc degrees in Civil Engineering from Tufts University and a PhD in Civil Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
