    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at CipherCloud for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people, just like many companies. A lot of people think they are mean but the real problem is the product and the business relationships, not the people.

    Cons

    This company ruled the world in 2014. CEO has come in for flack. He is arrogant sure but the real problem is that it is middleware. If the pieces at either side such as Salesforce, Box, Microsoft etc bring out capabilities to rival CipherClouds then there is no growth especially when those vendors hate CipherCloud for breaking their functionality and actively recommend that their clients do not use CipherCloud. Then you have CipherClouds CCM suite but that is way behind the curve and no innovation compared to Cloudlock and many other vendors.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CipherCloud full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cloud is a fascinating discussion to have with enterprise decision makers. Gain an understanding of the real world issues of data security and compliance that are limiting the scope of enterprises to adopt SaaS. Probably the hottest area of the market for infosec currently.

    Cons

    Very poor senior management decision making and even poorer communication. Company and product strategy gone wrong, such that large global companies invested $m's in the technology are looking for the nearest door marked exit. Real product quality issues, extending to scale and performance.

    I have been working at CipherCloud full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. A capable and well-intentioned leadership team 2. No politics 3. A product space that encompasses most components of the technology stack: - Networking (being a proxy gateway) - Java based application - CentOS based deployment (exposure to N-nix) - HTTPS as well as email traffic, etc

    Cons

    1. Work can be more structured - The dynamic nature of the work leads to shifting focus - this affects the quality of the releases though everyone puts in their best efforts

    I have been working at CipherCloud full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is plethora of opportunities to try and implement for DevOps at CipherCloud. With increased adoption of OpenSource technologies there is scope for trying quite a few products for POCs giving better exposure for ever evolving technologies.

    Cons

    At times it is hard to resist the temptation of seeing through to the completion of projects.
