As a Government employee, why did you go with NowSecure?
That’s actually a funny story, why I chose NowSecure: At first, I didn’t. In fact — I said, “Absolutely not.” But once I got my hands on it, and I understood how much of a benefit it had, then I had to say, “Yes.” NowSecure Platform was the first tool we bought.
Why did you choose to leave Gov and work for NowSecure?
