Becomes tech overseer.

McAfee has appointed its advanced technology officer Mike Fey to worldwide chief technology officer. 

Fey was the head of field engineering and advanced technology and is now responsible for overseeing management of McAfee’s team of regional and sector technology chiefs, market teams, and global sales engineers. 

He joined McAfee in 2007 and served in sales and engineering roles at several tech firms including a developer position at Lockheed Martin.

Fey will report to McAfee co-president Todd Gebhart.

He recently told SC that McAfee's anti-rootkit technology DeepSafe had detected new sophisticated multi-pronged attacks at companies trailing the technology, which included unnamed Fortune blue chips, critical infrastructure operators and security-conscious government agencies.

"I’m looking forward to applying my skills to help develop the next generation of hardware-enhanced solutions, expanding our global threat intelligence network, and further building out the Security Connected Platform," Fey said in a statement.

Gebhart described Fey as a "visionary leader" and said the chief tech role played "an important role in building out [McAfee's] technology portfolio to meet the security and privacy challenges”
