SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2017) - Veriflow today announced that co-founder and CTO Brighten Godfrey has won the 2017 SVBJ/SFBT Bay Area CIO of the Year Award in the Community Champion category.

The Bay Area CIO of the Year Awards recognize executives who use IT to create competitive advantages, optimize business processes and enable growth for their companies and industries. The Community Champion category highlights individuals in particular who make an impact in their community through involvement with professional associations, organizational boards and volunteer work.

Brighten and his co-founders pioneered the use of formal verification in enterprise networks. This technology enables an intent-based networking approach that shifts the focus of network design so it begins with the business intent, eliminating change-induced network outages and vulnerabilities. Brighten's work has furthered innovation in architectures and systems for Internet routing, data-center networking, high-performance data transport and network data-plane verification, as well as in theoretical analysis of network algorithms.

"The shift toward intent-based, business-focused networking is becoming more and more apparent, and we at Veriflow take pride in equipping not only our customers but also the next generation of IT thought-leaders with the latest innovations in networking technology."
