The co-founder of email security firm, MailGuard, Simon Cocking, has joined Melbourne-based cyber security start-up Forticode as vice-president of Technology.

Forticode says Cocking has joined Forticode to scale and expand the company’s flagship software, Cipherise.  

Cocking co-founded MailGuard, in 2001 and served as the technical director, responsible for the code and architecture of MailGuard’s software.

As the vice-president of Technology, Forticode says Cocking has been appointed to boost scaling of its Cipherise software and smart device app to potential users, while supporting the company’s growth to meet demand.

“Australian businesses have an ethical responsibility to protect their customers and clients’ personal information and data. Due to new data breach disclosure laws, Australian companies now have a legal responsibility to invest in cyber security too,” Cocking said.

“I’m thrilled to join Forticode, a company which is solving the complex problem of authenticating our digital identities – the key to stopping data breaches.”

Tony Smales, chief executive of Forticode said, “Forticode is an Australian company focused on supporting Australian businesses navigate their way through the challenges of the exciting digital frontier.”

“In addition to his valuable experience and highly developed skillset, Simon brings a deep understanding of the needs of Australian business.”
