Thu, 21st Mar 2024

Telecoms security company, Enea, has declared the appointment of Osvaldo Aldao as its new Chief Product and Technology Officer. Aldao brings over a quarter of a century's worth of experience to his new role, having worked with communications service providers across Europe, Asia, and Latin America, in senior leadership positions in sales and product management at both Enea and Ericsson.

Aldao's appointment comes at a significant time for Enea. Following a series of acquisitions and substantial R&D investment, the company now has an extensive array of specialist software for telecom network security and cybersecurity. To streamline their product focus and hasten technological innovation, Enea has formed a novel corporate function, 'Product and Technology'. This will amalgamate the company's technology strategy, research, and product management teams, driving innovation and commercialisation within the cybersecurity and telecom core domains.

Enea President & CEO, Anders Lidbeck, expressed his enthusiasm regarding Aldao's appointment: "I'm very thrilled with this announcement. I have gotten to know Osvaldo much better over the last six months and it has become evident to me how well respected he is within our organization and by our customers. He has that rare mix of real technological depth and true commercial understanding that is so important...Osvaldo and his team have the capabilities necessary to do this."

Aldao enters his new role with an intention to tap into Enea's rich history of collaborative innovation. "Our competitive edge comes from our agility and openness to develop our products and AI capabilities closely with the most forward-leaning communications providers and cybersecurity vendors, that seek best-of-breed software and have network security, intelligence and performance at the core of their business success," he remarked. Aldao also highlighted his anticipation to work with Enea's skilled team and contribute to the overall success of the company by exploring groundbreaking product opportunities.

Prior to this appointment, Aldao held the position of VP Product Management at Enea starting from 2021. His earlier roles at Ericsson encompassed Head of Portfolio, Communications Services, Head of IoT Accelerator and Head of Sales Support. Aldao hails from Argentina and holds a Master of Science in Telecommunications and Electronic Engineering from the Institute of Technology, Buenos Aires.

Established as a world-leading specialist in software for telecom and cybersecurity, Enea's cloud-native solutions connect, optimise, and secure services for both mobile and fixed subscribers as well as enterprises and the Internet of Things. Enea's technologies are utilised daily by over 100 communication service providers and 4.5 billion individuals. The company, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, has fortified its position in the global market by integrating acquisitions including Qosmos, Openwave Mobility, Aptilo Networks, and AdaptiveMobile Security.
