This week, we’re going to jump right into it. This week’s Geek of the Week winner is Ramesh Rajagopal, Co-Founder and Head of Product at Authetic8.
Many people have overlooked web browsing experience, though they shouldn’t. There are still countless threats out there that end users are unaware of. Good news though. Authentic8 gives organizations the ability to control an end user’s web browsing experience by deploying the actual web browser app using the cloud. By taking this siloed approach to web browsing, industries can ultimately insulate their entire networks from external threats. Since all the content that your end users view is through being viewed through the cloud based web browser, businesses can ensure that the desktop computing environment stays completely segregated from the web browser, which reduces the attack surface for businesses.
Furthermore, there are multiple benefits to this web browser. For starters, it’s not only good for one highly targeted niche group of people. Rather, this technology will become handy within corporate settings, government networks and academia, as data security and network diversity are hot topics within these sectors. Additionally, using Authentic8’s storage capabilities, businesses can upgrade their plan to securely store their files in the cloud. Administrators are able to granularly grant access rights to certain resources, giving organizations flexibility in the way they delegate access. And did we mention that Authentic8 is providing these features to its end users at no additional cost? This can mainly be attributed to Mr. Rajagopal’s execution and strategy.
As for Ramesh himself: he holds a degree in Economics from the University of Cambridge and an MBA in Finance and Strategy from the University of Chicago (Booth School of Business). He has held various positions in finance, business development and Enterprise/SaaS companies including Google and JP Morgan.
