Smart credential software provider CoreStreet has appointed Chris Broderick as its new CEO. Broderick joins CoreStreet from CA, where he acted as senior vice president and general manager of the company’s storage management business unit.
CoreStreet’s software is used in several smart credential programmes including the U.S. Department of Defense Common Access Card. The technology is designed to support credential infrastructures and related applications, including certificate validation and access privilege checking. Its products are compliant with the U.S. Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12, which requires federal agencies and contractors to deploy a common credential for access to both physical and digital properties
“This is a critical time for CoreStreet. We have always built our products around the belief that organisations should use smart credentials for all their security sensitive activities, from digitally signing email to physical access. The explosion in smart credential programmes at home and abroad attests to the accuracy of our predictions,” says Phil Libin, co-founder and president of CoreStreet.
Peter Hussey, CoreStreet’s co-founder and former CEO, will remain with the company, focusing on international business development.
