Enhanced search and security application’s US expansion is led by Ken Hawkins’ appointment to CTO and increased engineering, support and product development operations
Simplexo today announces the opening of its office in Atlanta, USA. The new location will house the engineering and support arm of the company and will focus on next-generation product development of Simplexo’s search and security application. The new office is indicative of the recent growth Simplexo has experienced in the US and will be led by the company’s newly appointed chief technology officer, Ken Hawkins.
The company plans to have more than 30 US employees by the first half of 2014 as it continues to develop and market its flagship product, SearchYourCloud. Marketing and sales will continue to be housed in the US headquarters in San Francisco, CA. The company expects to add staff in both locations.
Ken brings a deep history of internet entrepreneurialism with experience as CTO of Payz and director of technology of Broadjam.com. Ken has previously held technology leadership positions at Amazon, where he tied in AOL’s shopping experience with amazon.com processes and delivery systems. Ken served as chief architect of Instant Service, the first interactive customer service portal on the internet which subsequently became Oracle’s Live Agent.
Simon Bain, SearchYourCloud CEO, stated: “We are thrilled to have Ken lead Simplexo’s engineering and development team. His experience in pioneering technology will be invaluable as Simplexo positions itself to transform search and cloud security. The opening of the Atlanta office further expands our US presence and we are excited to continue making traction in the US market.”
SearchYourCloud delivers secure and fast search across various clouds and is now free for individual users. The application runs on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. SYC’s patented Improved Search Engine delivers full-text search by leveraging Boolean and semantic search technologies. SearchYourCloud provides more accurate search results than native search engines results by retrieving outcomes based on overall relevance to the query and keywords.
To achieve unprecedented cloud security, data is synchronised to the cloud provider where it is fully encrypted to AES 256 and can be securely accessed from a mobile device. SearchYourCloud prevents unauthorised access and does not create a direct network connection between a mobile device and the host computer or network.
Simplexo is resolutely focused on developing innovative and ground-breaking technology. Our software can be embedded, integrated and implemented by third parties such as carriers/mobile operators, systems integrators and software providers. We also partner with companies which have in-house IT development/integration expertise that wish to utilise our technology to solve current technical and/or business challenges.
The Simplexo technology can be used as a front-end access method for existing private or public cloud services, or as the backbone to deliver new services. In either capacity it delivers a new information access paradigm that promises to revolutionise the way in which users access their critical data in the cloud.
