FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
gen-i appoints security specialist
AUCKLAND, Thursday, August 23, 2001 – Internet integrator gen-i today announced the appointment of security architecture
specialist David Hunter.
gen-i networks manager, David Spratt, said New Zealand companies were just coming to grasp the real importance of
enterprise-level security but unfortunately there was a shortage of highly skilled security professionals.
David Hunter, who will focus on broadband Metropolitan Area Networks, security architecture and data management,
previously worked in the security field with Axon Computertime.
“David is an expert in his field, having worked on security projects for large financial services companies and high
profile government organisations, Mr Spratt said. “Companies now realise that security is more than just having a
firewall. David brings an architectural view to security rather than a single device view.”
David Hunter will work out of gen-i’s Auckland office, but will be available for the company’s projects both in New
Zealand and Australia.
gen-i limited is the first and largest New Zealand-based Australasian Internet integrator, focused on designing,
building, implementing and supporting e-business solutions and systems for large corporate customers. With over 500
people, gen-i extends customer support worldwide – both online and through a network of service partners.

Ansett, Department of Corrections, Department of Internal Affairs, LINZ, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, New
Zealand Dairy Board, Simpson Grierson Law and WestpacTrust.
