  • The emergence of the digital economy has long made access control a fundamental component of security compliance. This often induces challenges with respect to identity management, especially when it comes to external identities such as customers and partners who are essentially external organs of an organization. In shut eye time, you wind up with challenges pertaining to sharing and collaborating files securely. This is precisely where NirvaShare (a startup initiative by Nirvato Software Pvt Ltd) strategically places itself as a seamless solutions provider dealing with access, security and compliance, and in turn helps organizations share cloud storage files with external users. Bengaluru based NirvaShare is swiftly creating its own niche in the enterprise file sharing segment, largely owing to more than two decades of core IT experience of its founder, Nandakumar Natarajan. A programmer by passion and a leader by his strong wisdom, Nandakumar is re-establishing trust among the business stakeholders. He engages in an exclusive interview with CEO Insights.
