Over the last decade, his contributions have led SOA Software to achieving industry-leading vendor status. Today SOA Software has become the de-facto standard in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) governance and API management software in numerous global 2000 enterprise accounts. Further Medrano has influenced SOA Software’s rise to top positions in many of the industry’s prestigious analyst rankings.
Medrano is a recognized executive in the information technology fields of SOA, API Management, internet security, governance, and compliance. Experienced in both start-ups and large companies, Medrano served as General Manager of Hewlett Packard’s E-Services and Internet Security division becoming one of their top 100 executives. He has held executive positions at Finjan, Avnet, and Sun Microsystems. He participated in President Clinton’s White House Security Summits, the White House National Cyber Security Summits, and the White House National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. Additionally Medrano has been ranked one of “The Top 100 Most Influential Hispanics in the US” and the “100 Most Influential Latinos in Silicon Valley.”
