New CSO Unveils Comprehensive Security Plans Mapping Next Generation Deployment, Data and Industry Standards
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Feb. 25, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today at the RSA Conference, Egnyte formally introduced Kris Lahiri as the company’s new Chief Security Officer and unveiled his FY14 security roadmap. This roadmap details the company’s plans to raise the global standard for secure file sharing in the enterprise and will focus on adding key enhancements and integrations for secure deployment options, data privacy and industry standards.
Egnyte’s market-leading solution, the most secure and scalable on the market today, has also been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready, which is given to the select cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection. The RSA Conference takes place February 24-28, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
A co-founder of Egnyte, Lahiri has a deep background working with and meeting the needs of enterprise customers. As Egnyte’s new CSO, he will drive security advances across Egnyte’s cutting-edge infrastructure and will manage cross-functional teams that will implement the top-notch security enhancements and integrations that businesses require.
“Egnyte is the only file-sharing solution built from the ground up to meet the needs of the enterprise,” said Egnyte co-founder and CSO Kris Lahiri. “As the market evolves, so do the needs of our customers, and nothing is more vital to a business than the security of its most valuable asset – its business data. With alarming revelations of the NSA program and mass data breaches across a variety of industries, we understand how crucial it is to share our roadmap with our customers so they understand how Egnyte plans to secure their data and meet all of their security needs now and into the future.”
Late in 2013, Egnyte launched Storage Connect, a solution that allows enterprises to obtain cloud benefits while retaining file storage purely on-premises. In 2014, Egnyte expects to enhance Storage Connect across multiple dimensions:
“We’re excited to continue partnering with Egnyte to provide an integration that adds additional security measures for our customers at all data touch points, from logging in to access their business-critical data to sharing and storing it,” said Josh Greene, VP of Business Development at OneLogin. “Partnering with Egnyte has provided our customers with a secure enterprise-level option for sharing business files, and we’re excited to continue developing additional security measures through our integration.”
On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, Egnyte will exhibit in its partner OneLogin’s booth (South Hall, booth 1141) at the RSA Conference 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Kris Lahiri is a co-founder of Egnyte and was VP of Operations before moving into his new role as CSO. Prior to Egnyte, he spent many years in the design and deployment of large-scale infrastructure for Fortune 100 customers of Valdero and KPMG Consulting. Kris has a B.Tech in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology – Banaras and an M.S. from the University of Cincinnati.
