Sathvik Krishnamurthy

Sathvik (nobody called him Srinivas, despite what our yearbook staff thought) appears to have done well. Sathvik Krishnamurthy was appointed President and CEO of Voltage Security in March 2003 and brings over 17 years of computer networking, messaging and security software experience to the company.

Prior to joining Voltage, Sathvik spent four years as Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at ValiCert, a leading provider of secure file transfer and authentication software. While at ValiCert, Sathvik created and implemented the company’s global strategic marketing and partnership initiatives, helping to drive revenues from zero to $24M and a successful IPO in July 2000.

Before ValiCert, Sathvik spent six years in various capacities at Worldtalk Corporation. As Vice President and General Manager of their security division, Sathvik led the company into the secure messaging marketplace which ultimately resulted in the company’s $200M acquisition by Tumbleweed.

Prior to Worldtalk, Sathvik held engineering positions at various data communications companies including Retix, TITN, and Touch Communications and is co-inventor of US patent number 6609196, “E-mail firewall with stored key encryption/decryption” which he conceived of while at Worldtalk.
