Former Mimecast Vice President Tasked with Scaling Company’s Secure Cloud Infrastructure
London, September 6, 2019 – Garrison, the specialist provider of ultra-secure web browsing technology, today announced that Deepak Kumaraswamy has joined the company as Vice President of Technical Operations. In this role, Kumaraswamy will help Garrison accelerate the company’s infrastructure roadmap and scale its capabilities to meet new client needs.
“The cybersecurity marketplace is in need of more thoughtful, contrarian approaches to mitigate the risks that enterprises face every day and Garrison is leading the way,” said Deepak Kumaraswamy, Vice President, Technical Operations at Garrison. “We’re enabling costeffective ultra-secure browsing to mainstream commercial customers at an impressive pace. Now it is time to scale our infrastructure across the globe and help more enterprises embrace and benefit from a new approach to cybersecurity.”
Kumaraswamy previously served as Vice President of Technical Operations at Mimecast for the last 13 years where he was a key figure in the development of its business, product, and technology and security strategy.
“Garrison is committed to delivering technological advancements that will change the way the world thinks about cybersecurity. Our passionate team coupled with the implementation of hardsec technology provides customers around the globe with the most advanced solution to stop web borne threats,” said David Garfield, CEO. “We are thrilled to welcome Deepak and know he will play an invaluable role on our journey to eradicate the largest cyber threats facing the enterprise.”
This news comes on the heels of significant company momentum so far in 2019 with Garrison selected as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum (WEF). WEF’s Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.
Garrison was founded in 2014 by David Garfield and Henry Harrison, who set out to change our approach to cyber security.
With a wealth of experience from previous cyber businesses, they designed a product that eradicates the largest cyber risk to organisations and governments worldwide, that of web-borne threats such as malware, phishing attacks and drive-by downloads.
Garrison is pioneering a new technological paradigm in the field of cyber security – a system architecture known as hardsec. Instead of CPUs, hardsec uses lower-complexity (non-Turing- machine) digital logic to implement security, avoiding software’s weak point. By making use of FPGA silicon, hardsec can deliver rock hard security while maintaining the flexibility to address real-world cyber security problems in a cost-effective manner.
