Ex-Google employee's security startup exiting stealth mode

Security start-up Dasient is expected to come out of stealth mode in two weeks and reveal its plans to help companies fight cybercrime.

Dasient is officially keeping mum until its official launch the week of June 15, but co-founders Neil Daswani  (formerly Google security product manager), Ameet Ranadive (once a senior associate at McKinsey & Co.), and Shariq Rizvi (formerly a software engineer at Google) have left a trail of clues across the Web.

Dasient can be expected to unveil an offering intended to help customers defend and recover from Web-based attacks, and that will include tools for diagnostics and remediation, Ranadive said in an interview earlier this year with Hostingcon  that Web-hosting providers could be expected to generate a revenue stream through Dasient's offering.

Dasient is venture backed, having collected about US$2 million from Maples Investment, according to VentureDeal. Among its supporters is Stratton Sclavos, formerly head of VeriSign.
