No word on replacement for Krieger

McAfee, which acquired Secure Computing last September, says it can't comment on whether it will look to replace former Secure Computing Australia/New Zealand country manager Eric Krieger. McAfee marketing director Alan Bell told Australian Reseller News Krieger had departed before the acquisition was complete and said he could not comment on whether or not it would be looking to replace him.

Krieger spent eight years with Secure Computing, and says the acquisiton provides an opportunity to take a break and look at a couple of new opportunities.
