Paul Judge, Ph.D. had a different ride than the traditional ATDC company – his startup Purewire was actually acquired during his participation in the program by California-based Barracuda Networks. The SaaS service sits between a company’s network and the Internet to protect users from phishing, malware, identity theft and other security risks lurking on the web.
As Barracuda’s new Chief Research Officer, Judge has combined the two companies’ research and threat analysis teams to form a new group called Barracuda Labs. The technology developed by Purewire – in combination with Barracuda’s 85,000+ customers – make for a strong market offering targeted to network administrators.
