After an early technical leadership career at Apple, Jevans founded his first encryption company, Receipt.com, which went IPO in 2000 after merging with fellow crypto company Valicert. Receipt.com’s secure messaging products continue to underpin global financial networks for banks as well as SWIFT—the de factoinfrastructure for moving value across borders, spanning more than 200 countries. Jevans went on to found IronKey, a hardware encryption company that continues to thrive in financial, consumer and government markets as a division of Kingston. He then brought mobile security company Marble to market, which is now part of security leader Proofpoint.
