My Bio…

Simon Hunt has more than 20 years experience in software development, design and consultancy with fortune 500 companies. An accomplished consultant, software architect and designer, his vision and foresight have been the driving forces behind the technical success of the SafeBoot product range (SafeBoot has since been acquired by McAfee to establish McAfee’s Data Protection Business Unit).
Mr. Hunt took the reigns for McAfee’s data protection product range when it was a single user product in its infancy. Through continued feature development, and by working with customers to realize their enterprise requirements, Mr. Hunt took the data protection product range from one of many niche players to the acknowledged leader in its market. Working as Chief Technology Officer in the SafeBoot group since 1997, and now acting as Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Data Protection, McAfee, Inc., Mr. Hunt works to steer both the product suite and global consultancy teams.
Before working with SafeBoot, Mr. Hunt worked with other security product vendors such as Mergent International and Utimaco, and also had a significant impact on quality and engineer training at ICL Fujitsu where he was responsible for engineer training and consumer product support.
Mr. Hunt’s exceptional track record of technical improvement is based on his belief in quality and expandability. He is known for his ability to quickly identify customer requirements and translate them into realizable product features which go far beyond “quick fixes.” Mr. Hunt is known for his ability to pre-empt future changes by building in enhancement capability from the beginning.
Mr. Hunt received his B.S. degree from the University of North Wales, Bangor where he studied Marine Biology and Oceanography. He is a qualified BSAC scuba-diving instructor, and a Trustee of his local diving club. Mr. Hunt currently lives in Naples, Florida.
