Doug is now Senior Vice President at Pacxa, one of Hawaii’s largest providers of full-service IT Solutions. They are also one of the larger Oracle and Microsoft partners in the state.
Here are some of my takeaways from our coffee meeting:
- Email DLP (Data Loss Prevention) support requests within Microsoft 365 often come from needing help configuring it.
- Agrees that allowing the customer to create DLP rules via regular expressions (regex) is not ideal.
- Could see Inbound DLP as a need for certain types of enterprise customers.
- Microsoft and HP are heavily pushing their Partner programs for top tier Resellers.
Doug also went to Yale with Michael Seibel, who is now CEO at Y Combinator.
