Palo Alto, CA (PressExposure) June 05, 2012 -- Guardtime ( http://www.guardtime.com ) announced today that Mr. Gustav Poola has joined the company as Vice President of Products. Poola brings to Guardtime a robust track record of performance and innovation based on more than 20 years of hardware design and managerial experience.
"Guardtime Keyless Signature technology represents a breakthrough in data validation for the enterprise, cloud, and telecommunications industries. I look forward to contributing to its widespread adoption, growth, and success," Poola said.
For 12 years, Poola served as CEO of Artec Group, a leading provider of electrical engineering services with customers including STMicroelectronics and National Semiconductor. Under Poola's management, Artec Group grew to over 70 employees and engineered many successful products such as the Geode SoC-based ThinCan product line, a reference design that revolutionized thin-computing in 2006.

"I'm very pleased to welcome Gustav to the team," said Guardtime CEO Mike Gault. "Guardtime's technology is playing a critical role in providing independent validation of data and virtual machines in a cloud environment.

Guardtime's patented Keyless Signature technology ( http://www.guardtime.com ) provides irrefutable proof of integrity for data stored on disk, residing in the Cloud, or in transit across networks. Keyless Signature-based solutions are being adopted by governments, telecommunications service providers, and cloud infrastructure vendors around the globe in order to enhance transparency and provide stakeholders an independent and irrefutable method of proving that the implemented data security measures are working properly.
Guardtime was founded with the goal of solving one of the biggest problems in computing: how to be sure electronic data is authentic. Guardtime's Keyless Signatures provide proof of origin and that not a single bit has changed since a specific point in time. The verification of the signature can be done offline without reliance on keys, secrets, or the existence of a trusted third party. Guardtime's mission is to change the world to one in which Keyless Signatures are ubiquitous and a natural part of the everyday data lifecycle, whether on disk, in transit, or in the Cloud.
