Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
CloudOpt, the cloud network acceleration company, today announced that Dave Asprey, vice president of cloud security for Trend Micro, has joined CloudOpt’s advisory board. Asprey is a cloud technology leader who shares CloudOpt’s vision for making accelerated secure connections between private and/or public clouds easily accessible to the world.
“Dave’s extensive experience in cloud computing, networking, and strategy will make a significant contribution to CloudOpt,” said Dave Burow, CloudOpt CEO. “We are pleased to have him join our advisory board and welcome him to the team.”
“For companies to make full use of the cloud, they need to be able to quickly transfer data and access cloud applications. Too often, performance and security concerns limit cloud adoption,” said Asprey. “CloudOpt changes that by accelerating and encrypting data transferred between clouds. I look forward to helping CloudOpt make the cloud faster and better.”
Asprey has worked in cloud computing, security, networking and virtualization for more than 10 years as a senior executive at a mix of service providers, software, and networking companies including Exodus (Savvis), Citrix (NetScaler), Akamai (Speedera), and Zeus (Riverbed). He ran strategic development for Citrix's virtualization business unit and has held various roles in his career such as VP Marketing, Product Manager, VP of Business Development, VP of Technology, and VP of Corporate Development. A prolific speaker and blogger, his cloud writing has been published by the New York Times, GigaOm, Fortune, and PWC. Asprey created two early cloud offerings and has been an Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) at Trinity Ventures. Follow him on Twitter @daveasprey.
