Richard has a degree in Philosophy and 10+ years of Network Security experience specialising in WatchGuard and Check Point firewalls. He has managed a vast range of businesses’ IT security at both product and vendor levels. Within ABS he is responsible for the WatchGuard product estate as well as application delivery control and load balancing via our Kemp technology’s products. Richard has also enjoyed building the layer 3 Brocade/Cisco switching for our new datacenter.
Richard likes to get things done and has developed a knack for negotiating the best service and SLAs from our ISPs – or indeed any third party vendor – so that the service we manage for our customers is delivered and maintained. He is naturally confident and provides assured customer service; perhaps his Irish heritage gives him the gift of the gab! Richard also enjoys the outdoors and watersports, as well as family time and walking the dogs.
