Craig Elliott, the former CEO of Packeteer and one-time international general manager of Apple's internet and online services business, is in charge as CEO, but the company is also managed by a number of Blue Coat and Juniper alumni and has big-name investors such as Stratacom CEO Steve Campbell and former Apple and Sun Microsystems CFO Joe Graziano.
