Jay Chaudhry, chief executive and founder of CipherTrust, will join Secure Computing's board of directors and become chief strategy officer. "Our products and technologies are complementary," he said. The deal follows CipherTrust being awarded the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership program last month.
