Ward takes key role with SSL provider.
Michael Ward has joined The SSL Store as EVP of Strategic Partnerships. Ward previously worked with the company in a consulting role.
As its name suggests, The SSL Store specializes in helping companies encrypt with SSL. It’s a timely subject given what browsers such as Chrome are doing for sites that don’t have SSL certificates.
Part of Ward’s role will be working with hosting companies, registrars and resellers to offer SSL certificates to their customers. He’s well positioned for that role given his long career in the hosting and domain space. Over the past two decades, he’s held positions with Verisign, Public Interest Registry, Parked.com, DirectNic and Uniregistry.
He will be at CloudFest in Germany next week.
