By Alex Passett, Editor  |  May 01, 2024

Happy first day of May 2024, readers.

Let’s kick it off by talking about Cryptomathic.

Cryptomathic a provider of global data security and encryption solutions. Its specialists – expertly trained in developing and provisioning reliable methods for securing and encrypting data, transactions and applications across a cornucopia of industry sectors – are entrusted with addressing the challenges in risk and compliance, cryptographic-agility and adaptive security. (We’d call them “cryptomathsters,” but that’s just some light wordplay and not an official title… Yet.)

I digress. Members of the org’s cryptography team have invented and contributed to multiple next-gen cryptography solutions, including the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) which is endorsed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). These solutions protect sensitive personal info from unauthorized access; cloud service providers, transit workers, banks and fintechs, governments and other businesses are able to better understand their vulnerabilities take action to regulate responsibility and keep their digital assets safe.

The long-story-short of it? Cryptomathic accelerates secure digital transformation. (Learn more here about the specific standards to which the organization adheres.)

And just earlier this morning, Cryptomathic excitedly announced the appointment of Anna Russell as its Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

Per the official announcement:

Anna brings over two decades of experience in the data security and privacy industry, having previously served as Worldwide Vice President for Sales and Strategy for Voltage Data Privacy and Protection, a security business unit within Micro Focus (now OpenText).”

Joining Cryptomathic’s Strategic Global Management team to support further international growth, Russell will oversee sales, marketing, business development, customer success and other professional services that align with the Cryptomathic’s long-term strategies.

“Cryptomathic’s heritage is second-to-none,” said Russell herself. “For decades, this company’s creative minds have driven innovation and delivered cutting-edge, future-proofed solutions that set the industry standard for cryptographic excellence. The opportunity to work with globally recognized cryptography pioneers is truly exciting.”
