Work History


Surfwall Remote (Web Filtering)

Project Leader - Omniquad

Surfwall remote is a Managed Service which protects your entire network against all types of web threats without the need for any software, hardware, updates or maintenance. The Service offers web protection against viruses, malicious web sites, web spyware and offensive content using one managed service.


  • Designed and developed ISA web filter to filter web traffic.
  • Implemented Active Directory user/group/Organizational unit based, time-based real time filtering. 
  • Redesigned the caching logic to improve filtering speed by 500% using CMaps.
  • Adapted synchronization objects such as Critical section and mutex to make it multi-threaded safe. 
  • Implemented cleanup process thread to unload objects which were least used by filteration engine.
  • Designed in such a way so that the service is stable with max load for months without any memory leaks or crashes. 
  • Designed a web interface to create/modify policies for managed service and see reports.
Environment: VC++, C#.NET, Microsoft ISA ISA2000/2004/2006, SQL Server 2005, Rational Purify, Numega BoundsChecker, Windows Debugging tools (WinDbg)


Email Archiving and Disaster Recovery

Project Leader - Omniquad

Omniquad Exchange Archiving Service offers secure off-site archiving of external as well as internal e-mail received within your organization on your Exchange Server.


  • Designed and developed the server component to decode and store mails into SQL server.
  • Designed and developed the POP3 mail component to download mails from client mail servers for archivng.
  • Adapted Microsoft Sink/Dll to be registered with Exchange Server to make a copy of mail being received or sent and then developed a service to encrypt those mails using Rijndael Encryption and upload those mails.
  • Redesigned the database to support foreign characters and also made databases more efficient by normalization.
Environment: VC++, C#.NET, Exchange Server 2000/2003, SQL Server 2005, Rational Purify, Numega BoundsChecker, Windows Debugging tools (WinDbg)


Mailwall (Email Filtering)

Sr. Software Engineer - Omniquad

Mailwall acts as a relay between your local mail server and the Internet. Mailwall intercepts all e-mail messages on your network, disassembles them and looks for undesired/illicit content and threats in your e-mail: SPAM exploits, macro viruses and malicious HTML code. All policies are rules based-you can automatically filter, delete or quarantine suspicious messages.


  • Redesigned Mailwall core processing engine to be multithreaded/Multiprocess service. 
  • Improved processing speed by 500% by replacing CArray with CMAP.
  • Fixed Memory leaks & bugs in the existing code. 
  • Upgraded Mailwall services/applications to use SQL server rather than Access. 
  • Configured Microsoft DNS Server as blacklist server which was used by mailwall to not accept mails from those domains/IPs. 
  • Created web interface for customers where they can add the relay IPs and SMTP domains which will be automatically replicated on all the servers in cloud within few minutes using IIS App and DNS App.
  • Modified the existing ASP pages of image categorization, so that multiple users can simultaneously categorize the images 
  • Implemented archiving and disaster recovery for the mails that pass through mailwall for future access.

  • Designed and implemented a framework for the communication system supporting Named Pipes, Mail Slots, TCP/IP, NetBIOS, all supporting secured/unsecured communication.
  • Designed and Implemented the NT-Service framework, supporting multiple services to be registered from one executable. 
  • Designed & implemented the framework for synchronization of local database with main database using direct connection, proxy or using browser settings to keep local database updated. 
  • Devised a deployer so that client components can be checked, installed or uninstalled on the network machines without physically visiting the machines. 
  • Implemented time range use of computers, remote rebooting & shutting down of computers.
