Co-Founder & CEO @ Windmill Enterprise
Michael Hathaway’s career has placed him in the vortex of multiple electronic revolutions. He was a technical contributor during the early days of Ethernet and ATM network switches, culminating in developing the first gigabit capable Internet packet forwarding engine for a DARPA project while working at BBN. He was a founder and executive at the pioneering terabit Internet router startup, Ironbridge Networks, and CTO at network processor startup Agere (acquired by Lucent Micro). Michael then set his sights on developing a signaling and messaging layer to facilitate secure transactions over the public Internet. After 10 years of applying his architecture principals across multiple consulting projects, he founded Information Xchange (IX) and developed the Tensor-Connect platform based on his architectural principles. This lightweight information management platform assigns tokens to users and software applications, providing parameter level access permissions to Internet accessible data, and is the core of applications in Industrial IoT and agriculture sectors. With blockchain now reaching a level of maturity to support enterprise applications, he is spearheading the incorporation of blockchain into Tensor- Connect. He believes the incorporation of blockchain into enterprise data security to be the foundation of yet another electronic revolution.
