On today’s episode of Tech Talks Daily, I’m thrilled to welcome Kunal Agarwal, the rising under-30 CEO of Dope Security, who’s on a mission to disrupt the multi-billion dollar SWG (Secure Web Gateway) market. Kunal shares the story behind Dope, his perspective on entrepreneurship, and the opportunity he sees in the underserved SWG market.
Having recently announced a $16M Series A funding round (bringing their total funding to $20M), Dope Security is making waves in the industry. Before founding Dope, Kunal led product management teams at SWG giants Symantec and Forcepoint. There, he recognized an inevitable flaw in legacy technology – the reliance on stopover data centers for security checks, a method designed before the advent of cloud computing and remote work.
With today’s distributed workforces, the traditional approach to SWG no longer works efficiently, leading to data center congestion, performance issues, and privacy concerns. Dope Security addresses these problems by performing security checks on the endpoint, a more efficient and scalable solution. Decrypted data never leaves the endpoint, ensuring reliability and privacy.
Join me as Kunal delves into the founding of Dope Security, his approach to building the company, and the innovative technology they’ve developed. Don’t miss this insightful conversation with one of the brightest young minds in the world of cybersecurity. Tune in now to learn how Dope Security is revolutionizing the SWG market and redefining the future of cybersecurity.
