WALNUT, Calif., May 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Remote browser isolation startup WEBGAP today announced the appointment of Jie Song as their Senior VP (of Engineering). Previously Jie Song was the co-founder and CTO of LogicMonitor, which he helped grow from two-founders to 200+ employees, $140M+ funding and 1000+ enterprise customers, including Adidas, PayPal, Netflix, and Blackstone.
Jie is an expert in building highly-scalable, low-latency, and resilient distributed systems, enterprise IT infrastructure and infrastructure performance monitoring, expertise he will put to work at WEBGAP as they build out their global remote browser isolation platform.
Jie will lead the existing WEBGAP engineering team and is responsible for scaling that team as WEBGAP accelerates their development efforts. He is also an accomplished developer, having previously worked for Citrix, VMware, and ValueClick as a Senior Software Engineer for more than a decade.

Jie Song said today, "WEBGAP shows huge promise, if the endpoint is the new perimeter then WEBGAP is the future of endpoint cybersecurity and the key to unlocking mass-market adoption of remote browser isolation. I am excited to be able to help WEBGAP scale their efforts".
After launching their 'WEBGAP Go' MVP in March, a no-frills virtual browser service, WEBGAP has signed up their first fifty customers and automated the signup and deployment of small business customers through their website.
