Gus Hunt, formerly chief technology officer at the CIA until his retirement in 2013, has joined the board of advisers at San Francisco-based cyber intelligence and analytics software firm Stateless Networks.

“Gus played a key role in bringing the most innovative technologies, including Amazon’s public cloud deployment, to the CIA,” Stateless Networks CEO Kelly Wanser said Friday.

“He understands first-hand how the cloud has evolved and is shaping the future of networking.

“He’s a valuable add to our team as we work to help companies automate their networks and integrate network capabilities into the cloud to provide on-demand operations, eliminate outages and reduce operating costs.”

While at the CIA, Hunt made the recommendation that the agency adopt the Amazon Web Services cloud computing platform and also led efforts to pilot network virtualization and software-defined networking products.

The 28-year agency veteran led other work in the agency to implement commercial technology throughout its enterprise.
