Deep-Secure recruitment drive attracts Dr Simon Wiseman as Head of Development

Data security pioneer Dr Simon Wiseman has joined Deep-Secure Ltd as Head of Development, bringing to the company 30 years' experience in the field of Government computer security.

Under new Chief Executive Miles Clee, Deep-Secure is building a team with the skills, experience and flexibility to help public and commercial organisations manage and share the most sensitive, high risk/high value information.

Simon joins from QinetiQ with an international reputation as a subject matter expert. His work has paved the way for a number of innovations in the field, such as classified information being handled with mainstream commercial software, the Domain Based Security method of risk assessment and also development of network security guards to perform 'deep content checking'.

Simon said: "I joined the company because it is commercially-focused and can therefore provide customers with peace of mind at a price they can afford.

"A lot of potential customers are not aware of the risks they are exposed to in their management of high value data. Others do recognise the risks but try to ignore them.

"The team at Deep-Secure can help them understand the problems, address their specific concerns and deliver the products that will make their lives easier. My job is to deliver the products that the company needs to satisfy those customers, both in business and in the public sector."

Miles added: "We're delighted to welcome Simon to what is now a very strong Deep-Secure team. His reputation is second-to-none in this industry and having his expertise on hand strengthens considerably our offer to customers in the public and private sector."

Simon is not the only newcomer to the Deep-Secure team. He is joined by Sharon Lewis who, with similar experience within the industry, is heading up Product Management, Andy Freke who joins the sales team looking at Government and Intelligence sectors and a team that have come across with Simon and Sharon to increase the internal development capacity with specialist skills. In addition Deep-Secure welcome Colonel (Ret.) John Doody and Colonel (Ret.) John Roberts to the panel of Trusted Advisors, offering expert guidance in the areas of Government Security and International Defence.

Notes to Editors
Deep-Secure Limited, formerly operating as the Specialist Products Division of Clearswift, has built up a reputation as the premier provider of high assurance data sharing products for Defence and Government organisations around the world.

Our customers include UK MOD, UK Government, NATO, Australian Defence, BAE Systems and many of the global system integrators. All typically require that the solutions are comprehensively evaluated to the Common Criteria EAL4 standard and this requires Deep-Secure's specialist levels of security knowledge, development and engineering expertise.

Deep-Secure offers highly configurable solutions built around a core set of evaluated products that meet both current and emerging needs for secure data sharing for a range of business applications including email, web services and IM.

Deep-Secure has an advanced content checking and policy enforcement system which offers protection against the deliberate or accidental release of sensitive information to unauthorised people within the most stringent security environments. This includes checking encrypted or signed messages. Deep-Secure's Policy Server is separately evaluated to EAL4 for the application and enforcement of policy through the ClearPoint management interface.

Deep-Secure's guard products can exploit the EAL4 evaluated network separation technology provided by the Bastion platform, or may run on a mainstream operating system platform in closed environments where firewall protection is provided at the network security layer or within environments having low impact levels.

  • Adding new collaborative partners, solutions providers and vendor partners to drive rapid global adoption of new specifications

  • Providing an open library of secure specifications - spreading the adoption of new standards well beyond the core focus on the aerospace and defence sector
