Ex-Hacker Rajat Khare’s Boundary Holdings is rebranding itself
Rajat Khare, an Indian cyber expert who has worked with a variety of corporate intelligence firms involved in Kazakh cases, is looking for new opportunities.
His investing firm, Boundary Holding, is increasingly interested in machine learning technologies. Boundary, which was founded in Luxembourg in 2016, has invested in Wynard (NZ) Ltd, a New Zealand data mining firm that specialises in the study of criminal and cyber-crime data.
The firm invested in DroneFence, a German startup that has developed a software application that can take control of a drone while it is in flight, in June 2017. Khare’s investment came at the same time as that of Belarus tech entrepreneur Viktor Prokopenya and Said Gutseriev, the son of tycoon Mikhail Gutseriev, who heads the SAFMAR Group, which owns Russneft.
Khare spent years as the CEO of the Indian cyber-offensive firm Appin Security before launching Boundary, although he prefers not to linger on that time. The corporation was shut down in India at the end of 2014, but not before it conducted some daring cyberoperations for Western corporate intelligence firms (IOL 794).
