Interview With Victor Limongelli, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, AccessData
Congratulations on being named CEO of AccessData. You previously served as President and CEO of Guidance. Why AccessData? Why now?
I’ve been in the industry since 2003, I’ve known – and competed against – AccessData for many years, and I long viewed FTK as one of the key products in forensics. After becoming Chairman in 2015, I had an opportunity to see the company up close, and when I was asked to take over as CEO I was very comfortable in the strength of the product set, the dedication of the employees worldwide, and the opportunity to grow the business. In particular, the AD Lab product struck me as the future of forensics, enabling scalability and collaboration that is not possible with the traditional, stand-alone forensics approach. That is a big focus of AccessData in 2017.
