Doug Dickerson has joined Razberi Technologies as CEO to propel its growth in the video surveillance security arena. He brings more than 25 years of technology industry experience to the role. Founder and former CEO Tom Galvin has been appointed chief product officer to spearhead continued development of the technology he originally invented.

“I’m excited to be joining Razberi at this opportune time, because we see in the news every day the importance of securing our digital and physical infrastructures from hackers,” said Dickerson. “Companies are also facing significant challenges managing video surveillance more effectively. Razberi has developed a unique set of solutions that enterprises across the globe are using to monitor their infrastructures and automatically secure their video surveillance and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.”

Dickerson will focus on expanding sales of Razberi solutions across geographies and vertical markets such as energy, finance, city surveillance and more. These types of customers increasingly depend on Razberi’s data center, edge and rugged applications to secure their critical assets and scale with them. The company sells through a growing list of security integrators and value-added resellers.

“The addition of Doug as CEO gives us one of the industry’s best management teams and shows that Razberi continues to attract top talent to our team,” said Galvin. “His experience will be invaluable, because the growth in video surveillance and IoT devices has organizations facing security vulnerabilities and manageability challenges they’ve never experienced before. I look forward to working with Doug to help more customers take advantage of our technology.”

Building upon Galvin’s invention of the Razberi ServerSwitchIQ appliance, Razberi has continued to innovate with award-winning products such as Razberi CameraDefense. This solution enables security pros to consistently implement automated cyber security best practices without requiring additional firewall products and special expertise. CameraDefense hardens IP cameras, networks and other IoT devices, defends the video management system, isolates the camera network and provides 24/7 cyber threat monitoring.

Dickerson has held leadership roles in both start-up and large public companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Coban Technologies, a video SaaS company offering artificial intelligence-based mobile video systems. Before that, Doug was president of Danaher Tektronix Communications, a network management software and hardware company.
