In conversation with Mitali Rakhit of Guardara, an ICE71 Accelerate 4 startup

June 10, 2020

We caught up with Mitali Rakhit of Guardara, a member of ICE71 Accelerate’s fourth cohort.

Q: Tell us more about yourself.

I’m Mitali Rakhit, CEO and co-founder of Guardara, and we’re based in London, UK.

Q: What inspired you to start your startup? What is your goal or dream for your startup?

My cofounder and CTO, Zsolt Imre, used an early prototype of our product at the world’s largest telecommunications device manufacturer, and was able to find more security and QA issues than a leading competitor. The client wanted to buy the product.

At Guardara, we are passionate about building a world with more secure code. Our dream is to be able to move fuzz testing earlier into the software development lifecycle and to be able to automate it completely.

Q: What is the problem you want to solve with your product or solution? Tell us more about your solution.

FuzzLabs is focused on fuzz testing for quality assurance. FuzzLabs can find more issues faster, is easier to integrate and more flexible. We are making the product as easy to use as possible in order to reach a wider audience.

Q: Who might find use for your solution?

Enterprise product security teams that work on high-availability products, such as ICS, IoT, medical devices, telecom, defense, aerospace, and automotive solutions.

Q: What have you enjoyed the most being a part of the ICE71 Accelerate programme?

I have enjoyed getting to work with our fantastic mentors and peers in the cohort. I have learned that good things take time, and persistence is the key to success.
