K7 Computing’s 25th Anniversary
I was super happy today to have attended K7 Computing Pvt. Ltd.’s 25th Anniversary celebrations. The last time I had a similar privilege was ten years back when they moved to a new office building. K7 Computing is India’s own Antivirus Product company.
Today they announced their new Cloud Security EndPoint product and the launch of K7 Academy.
My association with Keseven Jayaraman is across 3 roles:
1. 27 years back I was the “First” Paid customer of Vx2000, K7’s Antivirus Product for Windows, even before the company was registered.
2. As my employer. K7 was the only company I worked as an employee and got a salary. After 3 months, I was ready to start my own business in 1997, that was 20 years back.
3. As my well-wisher always, and supporter during financially tough times in my business that I went through ten years back in 2008-2009.
Thank you, K7 for all you have done for me and many others. As a token of my appreciation, I gifted to K7, the framed copy of four pages from Sysreader Magazine, October 1990 issue which announced Vx2000 to the world.
Lakshmi Nayaranan of Cognizant in his brief talk mentioned on how important especially for product company’s to have pride in their work; Indian’s not doing well in International Olympiad in Informatics and how it can be improved; The role education and training by company’s like K7 Academy can do to change this and improve skill of aspiring software developers.
I was impressed with the organizers for their idea to recognize and award many of the accomplished CIOs in Chennai for their contribution to the world of Information Security.
