Rob is a Technical Director at Symantec, and has been working in the Security Technology and Response organization for over 15 years. He led Symantec’s AV technology development as the primary architect and initiated the creation of Symantec’s next-generation static detection technology (Static Data Scanner). The technology is deployed today across Symantec’s product portfolio such as Norton and Enterprise products, running on endpoints as well as in cloud solutions and gateways. Rob’s current initiative is project STARGate which provides full static detection technology across a wide range of enterprise gateway appliances and server solutions. STARGate is deployed in the cloud as well as on-prem via dedicated hardware. His current project allows for rapid integration of security technology into a wide range of solutions from companies that have been acquired by Symantec, as well as a number of internal projects. Rob has also designed and developed an innovative high performance I/O subsystem that is shared across many of Symantec’s technologies.
Prior to Symantec, Rob served as vice president of development at AdForce inc., as well as a number of technical and management roles at IBM, Taligent, and Apple Corp.
