  • Is known to have a great understanding of tech, especially the security needs of key and encryption tech
  • However, does not possess great finesse in the subtleties of business.
  • In late April 2006, came under fire as having very little ability to make decisions without first consulting the board of directors (and, more specifically, Jonathan Smart.)

"I've known Walter for many years now, and I know that the brain in his head understands the way our society is moving and adapting to technology like nobody's business. We've got some challenges ahead of us."
