Mark Bell, a former senior director at HP, is the new vice president of engineering at Trusted Network Technologies.

Bell will be responsible for product development at Trusted Network, which develops identity-based access control solutions for securing internal networks. At HP, he was senior director of the firm’s Internet and System Security Lab.

A graduate of The Citadel with a Masters in software development from the University of South Carolina, Bell has more than 20 years of engineering experience.

“With the growing issues involved with controlling access to corporate networks, it’s inspiring to work with a group that’s found a simple way to solve this problem,” said Bell in a statement. “I’m looking forward to contributing my expertise to get this product out to the enterprises that need it.”
