What do you do at Next DLP?

I'm the team lead of our infrastructure team. We're responsible for building and maintaining the components that ingest millions of events from our agents each second, storing these events, and then building the APIs that allow our users to search/investigate across all of this data.

How long have you worked at Next DLP?

Five years.

Why did you decide to join Next DLP?

The time when I joined we didn't really know what we were going to build, but having worked with a lot of the core team before, I knew that we were going to have an amazing engineering team with the opportunity to create a new and innovative product that I could play a part in shaping.

What is your favourite thing about working at Next DLP?

It's hard to pick one thing, but I'd probably say the people I get to work with. It's taken a long time and a lot of hard work to build our team and culture around it; having such a strong team, with a singular focus on making the best product possible dictates the way we do everything: how we design and build features, how we work together and how we support our customers. Choosing the right solutions to problems is never just about picking the best technical answer, it requires an understanding of the whole product, our customers and the market, and this can only be achieved by the whole team working together.

What are your future aspirations for Next DLP as a company?

Beyond becoming the market leading DLP solution, the scope and potential for the Reveal product goes way beyond just DLP. The capabilities we've built can be extended and adapted to tackle a whole range of threats. I look forward to seeing how we can expand the capabilities the product provides under the unified platform that we've created.
