McAfee Adds Product Management VP

Security technology company McAfee ( has hired 20-year industry veteran Brian Foster as its senior vice president of worldwide product management to oversee the company's global product management functions effective October 1.

According to a McAfee announcement Tuesday, Foster will work at McAfee's Mission Viejo, California office and report directly to executive vice president and chief technology officer Christopher Bolin.

"Brian's 20 years of experience in the security industry, combined with his extensive background in product management and business strategy, make him a valuable addition to our senior management team," Bolin said in a statement. "We look forward to Brian's strategic insight and leadership as we continue to grow our business."

"I joined McAfee because of its security-only focus, leading edge technology and the value it provides its customers," Foster said in a statement. "I look forward to using my abilities in delivering award winning consumer and commercial security products to help drive McAfee's shareholder growth."

Foster earned a bachelor degree in international economics and an executive degree in management from UCLA.

Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, McAfee is the world's largest dedicated security technology company; however, it has been scrambling to remain at that position, acquiring Reconnex and its gateway-based technology in early August to patch holes in its existing host-based data protection solutions.
