About Simon Hunt

馃摉 Summary

Today, there's no shortage of great ideas in IT companies - people are so busy, so wrapped up in the day-to-day, that it can be really hard for breakthrough concepts and innovation to make it from paper to a revenue generating, delivered, competitor usurping product. That's where I come in. I get things done. It's in my genetics, it's my entire career philosophy. You have a project which is 80% there, but you just don't know what the missing 20% is? Tired of conference calls and meetings, tired of negotiation which goes nowhere? Somehow your project design is getting pared to the bone, but you're still not able to deliver on time? Do you want to put rubber on the road and execute? If so, well, You perhaps need a little bit of "Simon Says". I have a proven history of sweeping away chaff, unwinding excuses, and working out a path of least resistance to take a great idea to a willing market. I'm always fair and value input - ideas can come from strange places. I fully believe "everyone works for sales" - and that's the key thing - if you can't deliver product to the sales people that they understand, and that their customers want to buy - well, what are you doing? I'm a rule changer, not a breaker. I understand legal compliance, export controls, company morals. I am an "upstanding corporate citizen" - but, despite this, I don't let red tape hold me back in my relentless drive to increase shareholder value, while spreading some fun on the way. What am I doing right now? - I'm evangelizing,creating mid-long term product and road-map designs and acting as glue for many disparate teams. I'm responsible for the Intel Security's new Secure Home Gateway initiative, designing enterprise class protection for every device in your home. I live and breath smarthome and Internet of GOOD things. I'm taking an internal innovation and helping it launch to the masses. Despite all that, I'm still upsetting the world by writing code and blogging about distasteful things...Industry Mentor @ Working to help Machine Learning and Infosec startups realize their ideas, through customer value focused approaches, agile methodology and sound business practice. From October 2015 to Present (3 months) Chief Technology Officer - Secure Home Gateways @ How many internet connected devices do you have in your home? And how many of them are secure? How many can you monitor? How many get regular patches from the manufacturer? How many could be spying on you without your knowledge? These risks are why I'm taking on a new role - to bring enterprise class security technology to your home, not in an additional box, but directly baked into your home router or cable modem. My team and I are going to provide simple, effective security for every device in your home, wired or wireless. We're going to let you protect everything, be aware of what's happening, and be in control of how the internet is used by people and widgets - all without having to be a system administrator.
