A small Herring story.
If you think security's tough to manage from a
PC-centric perspective, just wait until wireless
becomes more pervasive. Seeing that challenge up
ahead, peer-to-peer software company Endeavors
Technology hired Stephen Schwab as its chief
For the last three years, Mr. Schwab has been
working on a mobile code project funded by the
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
(DARPA) at Network Associates (Nasdaq:
NETA). He was recruited aboard in part by Michael
Gorlick, the company's chief software architect and
a former colleague at The Aerospace Corporation.
The two have regularly gossiped over the last few
years about who was rotating in and out of DARPA
Mr. Schwab believes that wireless Internet-enabled
devices will penetrate the market over the next few
years, making his job a critical part of Endeavor's
strategy. "Security will become a more pervasive
thing -- we're not talking about a computer that stays
behind a locked door anymore," he says.
He started his new job at Endeavor, a wholly owned
subsidiary of network infrastructure vendor Tadpole
Technology, on December 14. More recently,
Network Associates replaced a number of other top
employees, including CEO and chairman William
Larson (succeeded by IBM vet George Samenuk),
president Peter Watkins, and CFO Prabhat Goyal.
