In 1997, he and several SAIC colleagues formed Centrax, Inc., a company focused on the development and marketing of intrusion detection software. Since the sale of Centrax in 1999, Mr. Schessel has been advising security companies, including Kroll, in the areas of strategy, operations, marketing and business development. Additionally, he has been retained by investment banks and venture capital firms to assess investments in the information security industry.
