The Verisign Labs team brings a tremendous breadth of expertise and talent.
As Senior Engineer for advanced computing research, Dow Summers is currently exploring ways for Verisign to take advantage of fast-path packet processing techniques, improve small-packet networking performance of virtualized servers and investigate hardware-based deep-packet inspection. Dow joined Verisign in 1999 and was initially focused on transitioning our DNS services to 64-bit computing. Among other significant contributions, Dow also pioneered our passive real-time monitoring system for DNS and our other high-availability services.
Prior to Verisign, Dow worked as a systems engineer at Motorola's Iridium Satellite Control Center and a system administrator at Kansas State University. He is an accomplished IT professional with 20 years of experience architecting IT solutions for customers.
