I I am the co-founder & CEO of "i7 Networks", a BYOD agent-less discovery & Security Company. Before this I co-founded and was CEO of S7 Software, a software services company which after 6 years of successful running got acquired in Jan 2010 by Blue Coat Systems Inc, a US based network security company. In between I also held Managing Director positions for two US multinationals which are Bristol technology and Blue Coat Systems. I did my Master's (Comp.Sc) at Oregon State University, US and my Bachelor’s (again Comp.Sc.) from Bangalore University (UVCE) in India. I am extremely good at Go-To-Market (GTM) strategies and "Slicing & Dicing the market". Follow me on twitter at @manju_s7
