Newline Software Hires Brad Carpenter, Former Microsoft Executive, as CEO
REDMOND, Wash. Nov 15, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– Newline Software™, developer of 100% Data Privacy in the Cloud, announces the hiring of Brad Carpenter, a 20-year veteran and former Executive at Microsoft, as its Chief Executive Officer.
In August, Newline Software announced the release of OPTIC™, Online Privacy Technology In the Cloud. OPTIC allows developers to securely query, write, and read encrypted data to and from any cloud data store (e.g. Amazon S3, Windows® Azure™) without the cloud ever needing to decrypt that data. Encrypted data stored in the cloud can only be decrypted by applications on the client device. With OPTIC developers can create solutions with 100% data privacy in the cloud.
Carpenter left Microsoft in early October, where he held several General Manager roles focused on driving technology strategy and delivering products and solutions across the PC industry. Carpenter has served as an angel investor and a personal advisor and to Kory V. Gill and Marius D. Nita, Co-Founders of Newline Software, since its inception in August of 2008. This summer he also joined the Newline Board of Directors.
“The technology that Kory and Marius have created to achieve 100% data privacy in the cloud is exciting”, Carpenter said. “Being able to work with Kory and Marius again, and turn this technology into a platform that any developer can use, to make their cloud solutions 100% private, is a great opportunity.”
While at Microsoft, Carpenter helped define and drive the Surface Computing product strategy and development of the software platform, for Surface version 2.0. In this role, he opened up the Surface platform to developers and drove the technology into Windows and Microsoft’s Developer tools, to ensure that developers could easily develop touch-based applications. Carpenter also spent several years in the Windows Division, focusing on improving the quality of the PC experience. He managed a large team, which focused on delivering scalable services and solutions to enable developers to create higher quality device drivers, and reducing blue screens. This work was made possible, through building partnership and working extensively with OEM and IHV partners in the PC industry.
“Marius and I had the chance to work with Brad previously in our careers at Microsoft, where we saw his ability to lead any organization and drive solutions across the company and the industry,” Gill said. “We see Brad as the right fit to help us make OPTIC a great platform solution for developers.”
