BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), a leading global Certificate Authority (CA) and a provider of identity services for ecommerce, communications, content and communities, announced it has expanded its management team to position the Company for accelerated growth as it prepares to meet the skyrocketing demands for trusted identities in the enterprise, as well as for mobile transactions and smart devices in the Internet of Things (IoT). GlobalSign is the security division of GMO Internet, Inc. (TSE: 9449), headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
"I am pleased to welcome Robert Marcus as vice chairman, and Joan Lockhart as CMO, to GlobalSign," said Ichiro Chujo, Chairman and CEO of GlobalSign. "The Company is experiencing strong momentum, driven by the need for multi-factor authentication in the enterprise, increased demand for SSL, government initiatives mandating increased security, and from emerging applications in mobile and device authentication. These executives bring extensive depth in global strategy, security, mobile technologies, and fast-growing enterprise software sectors, and will complement our already strong management team."
Robert Marcus, vice chairman, is responsible for overseeing the company's global operations and corporate expansion strategy, focusing on helping GlobalSign develop strategic partnerships, technology investments and possible acquisitions. He is the co-author of "The Fifth Wave, A Strategic Vision for Mobile Internet Innovation, Investment and Return" (2012), and spent nearly a decade at Microsoft, architecting its early mobile internet strategy and solutions. He is a founder of QuantumWave Capital, and also built a public company to a half-billion dollar valuation, co-founded three successful start-ups, and led a turnaround, generating two IPOs. He is based in Paris.
Joan Lockhart, chief marketing officer for GlobalSign, will be responsible for driving strategy, global branding, online initiatives and customer acquisition programs from GlobalSign's North American headquarters in Boston. She brings a wealth of marketing and sales experience in a broad range of high-growth industries, including security, telecommunications and enterprise software. Most recently, she was vice president of marketing at Geomagic, where she helped drive its successful sale to 3D Systems. Previously, she was vice president of sales and marketing at Sensable, acquired by Geomagic. As vice president of marketing at GeoTrust, she drove market share growth and positioning, resulting in GeoTrust's successful sale to VeriSign. She has also held marketing and executive leadership positions with RSA Security, Avid (IPO), Convergent Networks, MCK (IPO) and PictureTel, each during periods of rapid growth.
"The mobile internet is radically altering life, society and commerce, and there is a fundamental need for trusted identities," said Robert Marcus, vice chairman for GlobalSign. "As a leading Certificate Authority, we have the vision, experience, and technology to fill that need -- a highly available and global network, proven PKI infrastructure, and the systems for authenticating and issuing trusted identities. I believe that GlobalSign can be an incredibly valuable player in the Internet of Everything and we'll be detailing a number of exciting initiatives in the coming months that will further our vision to enable secure online transactions through our trusted identity services."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
