Quick Heal Technologies rejigs India R&D leadership team
Home-grown cybersecurity solutions company Quick Heal Technologies has further strengthened its R&D leadership team with the appointment of global experts, Sanjay Agrawal and Bibhuti Kar, as Chief Product Officer and Head of Research and Development respectively.
The new appointments are in line with the company’s strategy to accelerate product innovation and drive the expansion of next-generation enterprise security solutions under the “Seqrite” brand.
Sanjay is an entrepreneurial engineering and product leader with over two decades of experience and proven success in building cybersecurity products for the global markets. He has served many prestigious and high performing roles, including Vice President of Engineering Application and Security at ColorTokens and Director of Engineering at Cisco. A computer engineering graduate from the University of Illinois, Sanjay holds a Ph.D. and an M.S from Stanford University in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).
Bibhuti brings with him over two and a half decades of rich experience in the global high-tech industry. An alumnus of IIT Kharagpur with a master’s in ECE, he started his career with the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) as a project assistant on missile communication systems. Post this, he held several prestigious roles in leading technology companies like Cisco, Bell Northern Research and Sophos.
“The addition of Sanjay and Bibhuti will further accelerate our efforts to strengthen our enterprise security business,” Kailash Katkar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Quick Heal Technologies, said in a statement.
“We are certain that they will add significant value to Quick Heal Technologies as we continue to innovate and deliver world-class security products and solutions in sync with the ever-evolving and dynamic market expectations,” Katkar added.
Quick Heal Technologies earlier this month said that during the lockdown, it digitally onboarded over 150 employees across domains, including R&D and security labs.
