Pulse Secure, a provider of software-defined secure access solutions, has announced that Rohini Kasturi is joining the executive team as Chief Development Officer, where he will be responsible for worldwide engineering and solutions.
“We are totally committed to continuing to excel as an industry-leading technology company which offers the best secure access solutions for people, devices, things and services,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, CEO of Pulse Secure. “We are delighted to welcome Rohini on board to lead the company’s global efforts in developing our products and solutions to meet the evolving requirements of our customers and partners. Rohini is an entrepreneur with significant experience in scaling teams and businesses and we look forward to leveraging his expertise to deliver superior customer experiences.”
Prior to taking up his new role at Pulse Secure, Rohini Kasturi was a VP/GM at Veritas where he oversaw its information management portfolio and led engineering, product management and business development. While at Veritas, Rohini’s team launched the industry’s first multi-cloud data and information management platform and apps ecosystem. Rohini has also held roles at Avni, where he was the founder and CEO, creating the industry’s first Hybrid Cloud Platform, as well as various leadership positions at Juniper, Cisco and Motorola.
The appointment of Rohini Kasturi as Pulse Secure’s new Chief Development Officer is reflective of the company’s focus on advancing its secure access portfolio, which delivers protected connectivity, operational intelligence and threat response across mobile, network and multi-cloud environments to provide easy, compliant access for end users and single-pane-of-glass management for administrators. In February, Pulse Secure announced new Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) functionality that complements its integrated solution set by offering direct device-to-application/resource secure connectivity only after successful user, device and security state verification including geo location and behaviour-based anomaly detection.
“Today’s enterprises face a range of challenges in ensuring secure access to their infrastructures and applications due to widespread mobility and the growing trend of digital transformation,” commented Kasturi. “Now more than ever, businesses are looking to companies like Pulse Secure to help them with their IT security needs and I am excited to join the team at such a pivotal time in its development as it experiences continued growth and global success.”
