“I am intrigued with the prospect of growth and success that Ezenia, as a small business and technology company, could potentially have. While Ezenia’s InfoWorkSpace product line has an excellent reputation it has the built-in security capability, with an extensive portfolio of defensive and counter-invasive measures that is of keen interest in my eyes from the information protection perspective” stated Mr. Ivers. “Strong information protection and stringent privacy protection are the two most pressing challenges, among many others, that we all face and must resolve to provide in the IT industry. I believe that Ezenia has a compelling competitive advantage that needs to be strongly leveraged and aggressively exploited.”
