Martin Walter has gained a sterling reputation for his extensive experience in product management, combining deep technical expertise with diverse skill sets in product marketing, and pre- and post-sales customer orientation in large enterprise environments. He was most recently Senior Product Manager at Palo Alto Networks, where he supervised User-ID, a primary component of the company’s Next Generation Firewalls offering. Among other areas, he led the development of cryptography and authentication product lines, created PRDs for new features and developed field training, collateral and technology notes for new releases. Before that, he was Product Manager at PGP Corp., where he managed PGP SDKs, PGP Universal Server and PGP Key Management, working with all parts of the organization to identify new business opportunities. Earlier, he was a security consultant specializing in enterprise PKI and encryption/signature solutions, among other technologies.
“I’ve always been drawn to companies that focus on developing innovative technologies for specific market needs, and RedSeal Networks is clearly a leader in that field,” Walter noted. “I look forward to working with this team of dedicated professionals to bring new and exciting products to market.”
Robert Capps brings nearly 20 years of experience in design, management and protection of complex eCommerce systems to his new position.
