Charles Walton

Charles Walton joined Avast as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Identity in June 2021 to push the company forward in the digital identity space. He started off studying control theory in university and planned to work for an airplane manufacturer. But he switched tracks after becoming inspired by “an innovative company and charismatic leader in the security market,” which he knew very little about at the time. So he jumped into the information security space right out of engineering university, starting on data and voice systems in the US Department of Defense community. After leading a digital identity startups in Canada and driving a new identity initiative at MasterCard, he joined Avast.
