Tech industry veteran William Strecker is CTO at In-Q-Tel, a federally funded venture capital firm, incubator, and idea lab that invests in companies with technology of interest to the U.S. intelligence community. In 2010, In-Q-Tel invested in Cleversafe, a data storage specialist that splits up data for storage in multiple locations. Another investment, Silver Tail Systems, provides fraud-prevention technology for websites by using Web behavioral analytics to identify threats. Other areas of investment last year include a next-generation, miniature radar motion detection system, high-resolution mobile imaging, and collaborative translation software.
