Allen Drennan


In 1998, Allen Drennan started WiredRed Corporation, and created e/pop®, the first company-wide presence management and secure instant messaging platform through server-to-server pipes across physically distributed networks.

In 2008 the company changed its name to Nefsis Corporation and introduced a cloud-based, video conferencing online service, which Frost and Sullivan cited as the first "conferencing service solution based on the technologies of cloud-computing, end-to-end parallel processing and multipoint video conferencing."

The company was acquired by Brother International in 2011. After helping integrate the company into Brother, the team reunited in 2015 to form grijjy.
