My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur Featuring Satyam Sinha – Creating a leading Zero-Trust Cloud Workload Security Platform! 

How do you create a leading Zero Trust cloud workload security platform and get acquired by Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader. A Zero Trust security stance is a new approach in which no-one is trusted automatically, whether they are inside or outside the network. Verification is always required from anyone trying to gain access to resources on the network.

Come and listen to Satyam Sinha, Co-Founder and VP of Engineering of Aporeto and now VP, Engineering at Palo Alto Networks, explain how he and his team at Aporeto   did just that and what inspired them to start Aporeto, lessons learned and choices they made. Aporteo was founded in 2016 to address identity-based access control to secure workloads across all infrastructures. The company was acquired by Palo Alto Networks for $150 million in cash in November 2019 to leverage its micro-segmentation technology to further expand their cloud security capabilities and enhance the Prisma suite of cloud security services. 

Join us for this inspiring talk, ask all your questions, learn from the experiences of a successful entrepreneur and connect with other aspiring entrepreneurs at TiE office on Thursday March 5, 2020.
