    Baffle Inc, a cloud data protection company, is establishing its presence in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The US-based company is expanding its global footprint with the launch of a new engineering center in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The company plans to expand its workforce over the next year and will be hiring design, development, DevOps, customer success and sales engineering personnel from the local market. Ex-Cisco leader Kumar Subramania will be the senior director of engineering and head of India operations for Baffle.

    Subramanian, who was previously the engineering leader at Cisco Systems, led the product development for multiple market segments at Cisco. He has more than 25 years of experience in product design, development, and productization. Baffle as a company will be all about protecting data in the cloud, supporting major cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud's Platform, and IBM Cloud—via a nocode, simple-to-deploy security mesh without any performance impact or changes to applications.

    The solution has been recognized as the fastest and easiest way to transform sensitive data records as they are ingested, and only reveal them to authorized data accesses. Baffle says its solutions are trusted by some of the largest, most complex global enterprises to help ensure data is protected no matter where it resides or how it is being used. “Baffle's new office creates a number of exciting hiring opportunities for local tech talent over the next year to help expand its Data Protection Platform in APAC's Silicon Valley,” said Subramanian.

    “The company's decision to choose Bengaluru for this expansion highlights the rich pool of talent available in the area. This new facility will play a key part in extending Baffle's global presence,” he adds.

    Bengaluru will serve as the hub for Baffle's future hires in the region and in Europe. “We have always believed that Bengaluru was our top choice,” said Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO, Baffle. “We are fortunate to get someone of Kumar's calibre to join our team and the tremendous talent that we've seen in the Bengaluru market aligns perfectly with our expansion strategy as we build products at a scale to meet global demand.”
