Etherprise
Sep 19, 2018 · 3 min read

Etherprise is excited to add Stephen Blum, Founder and CTO of PubNub, to its advisory board. PubNub is a global-scale infrastructure-as-a-service platform used by customers like Coca Cola, McDonalds, and CBS, and over 2,000 more. PubNub has partnered with IBM, Microsoft, ESRI, SendGrid, New Relic and many more to deliver out-of-the box integrations.

Stephen and his team raised over $50M from powerhouse firms Sapphire Ventures, Scale Venture Partners, and corporate arms Ericsson and Cisco. He is the original architect and developer of the core PubNub engine that has been named a top enterprise app multiple times, and processes trillions of realtime transactions per month with a guaranteed 250ms or less response time for some of the largest realtime deployments in the world.

“I’m very happy to be chosen as an advisor to Etherprise, where I feel I can contribute greatly to the secure, scalable platform architecture, and also be additive in developing and expanding the customer base. Blockchain truly presents a unique solution to decentralized applications and data collaboration, and I believe the Etherprise architecture will finally provide the privacy and governance that enterprises need to truly adopt and utilize this technology.

— Stephen Blum, Founder & CTO, PubNub

Stephen brings a wealth of knowledge around massive-scale enterprise deployments, scaling high-performance messaging systems, realtime delivery engines, and building successful businesses around global-scale network usage. He has tremendous experience with security and compliance, building PubNub to support TLS and AES256 encryption, along with custom encryption models. EU customers can route data streams and store messages within the EU to adhere to GDPR and PII compliance. In his spare time, Stephen built an implementation of the PubNub core engine on the blockchain to support realtime, immutable message delivery.

“Stephen has achieved massive scale with enterprise applications, and can count many of the world’s largest companies as customers. He’s pushed the envelope of technology with PubNub, and we look forward to his advising Etherprise as we look to do the same in the blockchain space. Stephen is a world-class technologist and will be an invaluable resource as we bring enterprise-grade performance and security to the public blockchain.”

— Chad Arimura, CEO, Etherprise
