Prior to founding Fortanix, Ambuj was lead architect at Cryptography Research Inc. where he led and developed many of the company's security technologies that go into millions of devices every year. Previously, he worked for NVIDIA where he designed world's most advanced computer chips including world's fastest memory controller. He has Bachelor of Technology from IIT Kanpur and Masters of Science from Stanford University, both in EE.
Anand has previously worked at Symantec and VMware, as a researcher and an engineer in the areas of security and networking. He has presented at Financial Cryptography and BlackHat conferences, and has filed over 25 patents. Anand holds a PhD from Stony Brook University and a Bachelor of Technology from IIT Kanpur, both in Computer Science.
Professor Porter is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research develops abstractions for managing concurrency and security, primarily in the operating system, and extends these abstractions to other portions of the technology stack as appropriate. Contributions of his team include study of modern Linux API Usage and compatibility and Graphene-SGX.
Professor Devadas is the Webster Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests include computer architecture and computer security. His team has done pioneering work on secure processing, including a detailed analysis of Intel SGX.
Benjamin Jun is an internationally recognized expert in security. He formerly co-founded Cryptography Research, and over 20 billion consumer devices have shipped with security technologies he helped develop and architect. His security components play a role in leading payment systems, mobile phones, digital content, and semiconductor companies. Ben serves on the Board of Advisors of the RSA Conference.
Prior to joining Fortanix, Andy worked at Square, Cryptography Research, Inc., and NVIDIA, on a range of security and computer system design projects. Andy has presented at the Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems conference. He holds a B.S. from MIT and a M.S. from Stanford, both in electrical engineering.
Jethro's Ph.D. dissertation is titled “Improving Cloud Security using Secure Enclaves.” He's now thrilled to be putting his research into practice at Fortanix. Jethro has presented at CCC and the Stanford Security Seminar, published at various academic venues, responsibly disclosed numerous security vulnerabilities and contributed to the Rust compiler. He holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.S. in EE from the University of Twente.
Faisal is an experienced technical leader and engineer with a 20+ years background in software, security and storage building distributed applications and enterprise class products. Prior to joining Fortanix, he was Principal Engineer and Design Authority at Thales e-Security, Inc. where he led development of several enterprise security products from inception to customer shipment.
Daniel has over 15 years experience implementing systems software, including previously working for VMware, Nutanix, and PrivateCore. He has a Bachelor and Master of Science in Computer Science from Stanford University.
Jeffrey is a software engineer interested in secure, strongly typed systems programming and programming language design. He is on the Rust compiler team an is active in the Rust community. Prior to starting at Fortanix, he worked as an independent contractor with Mozilla designing and implementing a state-of-the-art hygienic macro and name resolution system and for Rust and studied Mathematics and Computer Science at UC Berkeley.
Xenia has a background in design for 10+ years. She holds a Bachelor in Marketing (Visual Communication) from State University of Economics in Saint-Petersburg.
