Cool Startup: Rev Software

Rev Software is a startup based out of San Jose CA, cofounded in 2012 by Jerry Hall and Jonathan Bosanac, with a focus in mobile last mile acceleration. With over $4M raised in private funding, the company offers CDN services and mobile last-mile acceleration called MdotCDN. Rev offers all the typical CDN services, including small file acceleration, instant purge, WAF, DDoS Mitigation, SSL, Rules Engine, reporting, analytics and robust dashboards. Now, however, customers have the option of adding this new feature “MdotCDN” to their CDN services. For those customers that already have an existing CDN contract in place, Rev plugs right in and acts as an overlay network.

According to benchmarks made by the team at Rev, the last mile mobile accelerator has proven to be up to 75% faster than competitors, can accelerate encrypted content, and is compatible with any CDN. Every optimization is processed uniquely, as it comes in to most aptly fit the customer’s specifications. That gives customers the ability to create unique content for each and every end user regardless of the volume of customers. It’s exciting to see another innovation-driven CDN enter the Ecosystem because there aren’t enough today. Rev Software eats and sleep mobile last mile acceleration, and the features they have created so far prove they are unique in the vast ecosystem.

Deep Dive with Leon Kuperman: Zenedge Feature Set

On Monday, we published part one of our interview with Zenedge’s CTO and co-founder Leon Kuperman. The following is part two, a deep dive into the specifics of the company’s feature set. The Q&A session was done in person, and our team wrote down the answers almost exactly as they were described. The first thing our team noticed is that Leon is a very well spoken CTO that talks like a University Professor. He takes an extremely complex security concept, and breaks it down into easy-to-understand chunks.

Interview with Zenedge’s Leon Kuperman

Finally, after many years of silence, Los Angeles is back on the map with one of its very own Nex-Gen Cyber Security start-ups called Zenedge. Zenedge deserves a big hand of applause for making LA their home base. Silicon Valley has its FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, Instart Logic, Fastly, Bromium, and so on. LA now has its Zenedge. We sat down with the CTO and Co-founder Leon Kuperman, and just drilled him with a ton of questions on their offering.
