Anonymizer, Inc., http://www.anonymizer.com, the leader in consumer online anonymity solutions, today announced that with the close of the sale of its parent company, Abraxas Corporation, to Cubic Corporation, Anonymizer has been spun off to management. Anonymizer was acquired by Virginia-based Abraxas Corporation in May 2008 and was operated as a wholly owned subsidiary.
“Anonymizer’s commitment to delivering world-class privacy and online anonymity tools and putting them in the hands of end users remains unwavering,” said Bill Unrue, president of Anonymizer. “With the explosion of major consumer privacy problems on the Internet, Anonymizer is poised to continue leading the industry and we’re looking forward to this new chapter of our company.”

In this position, Wijetilleke will oversee all aspects of Anonymizer’s consumer offerings, including product strategy, business development, marketing and most importantly he will drive future product development.

Wijetilleke holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from American University, a Master of Economics from the London School of Economics, and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management.
Wijetilleke added: “As the online privacy space continues to mature, Anonymizer is in a great position to increase its lead in the industry and to be at the forefront of bringing innovative products to market. Consumers need state-of-the-art solutions to protect themselves from relentless threats to their online privacy. I’m excited to join the Anonymizer team and to help drive this evolving business forward.
