SAN DIEGO—August 15, 2018—Scott Carter, former CEO of ID Analytics LLC, a Symantec company, has assumed Chairman of the Board responsibilities for high-speed cybersecurity innovator FHOOSH™, Inc. Carter will spearhead FHOOSH’s strategy, growth and execution as its patented high-performance data transfer and data protection enters full commercialization.
Carter’s broad experience as a data analytics/risk management/digital security technology leader and his insight into C-level executives’ challenges and responsibilities to safeguard sensitive corporate and customer data are an excellent match to take FHOOSH to the next level. Carter brings an impressive track record of growth acceleration across enterprise and consumer businesses domestically and globally. His deep expertise in strategy, corporate development, product, sales and marketing will help to guide the FHOOSH executive team in refining and executing their growth agenda.
Carter was promoted to CEO at risk management leader ID Analytics after first serving as the company’s COO. He was then again promoted to EVP, Enterprise for parent firm LifeLock, prior to its acquisition by Symantec. Previously, Carter held executive positions for Experian where he led global business in fraud, identity and analytics. His breadth of expertise was further developed via executive positions at Mitek, First Union (now Wells Fargo), FICO and American Express.
“I am excited by FHOOSH’s unique intellectual property and the opportunity that opens to create a new category that transcends the data, analytics and security ecosystems,” said Carter.
FHOOSH Co-founder Eric Tobias commented, “Many organizations need to better protect sensitive data to build customer trust and manage reputation risk, but they also want to improve their user experience. This need is ubiquitous across public sector agencies and private sector applications including life sciences, financial services, communications, IoT device manufacturers and many others. Scott’s expertise complements our mission to deliver next-gen cybersecurity solutions that change the paradigm. Instead of trading speed for security, organizations can now get both with FHOOSH.”
“Scott’s talent for turning technology into successful products is just what we need to advance the company,” remarked FHOOSH Co-founder Linda Eigner. “His experience gives him a unique vantage point on the data protection challenges organizations face, and his proven go-to-market skills will further hone our approach as we pursue key markets and partnership opportunities.”
