Rahul founded CloudSEK in 2015, when he realized that there wasn’t a comprehensive solution to monitor external cyber threats. He set out to build intelligent machines that can emulate human cognition, to provide contextual threat intelligence, even before an incident occurs – thus empowering organizations to anticipate and preempt large-scale cyber attacks.
Rahul started his cybersecurity journey with Garage4Hackers, an online community of cyber security researchers back in 2006. He spent his college days researching, programming, and contributing to the cybersecurity community. Later, he dropped out of college to pursue his passion for cybersecurity by joining iSIGHT Partners. iSIGHT Partners has since been acquired by Google. Subsequently, Rahul joined Citrix, where he was the first person without an engineering degree to be hired by Citrix India. Thereafter, in 2015, Rahul established CloudSEK.
Rahul is well-known for his significant opensource contributions to the cybersecurity landscape, and has spoken at events and conferences in over 22 countries. He is also part of the working committees of The Reserve Bank of India, where he is the youngest member of the digital lending committee, and MeitY.
