We all know about quick heal antivirus it is today a leading brand in cyber security and it is an Indian company. This article is all about the entrepreneur journey of the Sanjay Katkar who is the co-founder and chief technical officer of quick heal.

This journey is, of about the two brothers who came from the middle-class family, born in Satara their father worked in Philips. They studied in an English medium school which was very challenging for them as no one from their family ever studied English. And so they need to take private tuitions which increased the financial burden on their family. So Sanjay’s elder brother decided to help his father in that. So they learned the lessons from practical life problems and not from any schools and colleges and started to solve them by their own without anyone’s help so his brother started to repair radios and other electronics at home and soon he started to earn a decent pay. Soon he got a job at the company named Star Electronics where he was earning less than what he earns at his home but he decided to work there because he was learning something new there. At Star Electronics he repairs ledger posting machines which were used in banks before computers, when he repairs those machines he used to visit banks for serving the machines one day there was a strike in banks and the reason for which is the replacement of the ledger posting machines with computers which are going to take the job of many staff at their that’s why the staff was on strike. He realized that the machines that repairs are soon going to replaced so he decided to start learning how to repair computers so he went into the market and bought some books of repairing computers and printer and all such equipment’s and started learning them by his own. At the same time he just joined the electronics engineering and his brother told him to do BCS ( Bachelor of computer science) which was just started in the colleges, his brother pushed him to do that even though he was not very interested but he decided to do that and also started to learn computer learning. In the 2nd year C++ introduced to him and he was very interested in that he was actually interested in the fact that it can programme the computer. So he was always looking forward to the practicals and at that time there was one practical a weak and many of the days he uses to miss the practices due to the power outage and some other reasons. So he uses to visit his brother’s office and do programming at his office and there he came to knew that pc’s were having virus infections and it really spoiled his days and he realized that virus is a big problem. In college, he was having OS internal as a subject in that there was a topic named debugging in which he learned how a virus infects the computers. Whatever he learned is by doing practical’s and he told his professor that he can actually understand the virus and can clean it manually so he the professor asked him to clean some pc’s in the lab and he did it so his professor asked him to take a class on that topic. In between that day and the day at which he had to take the class he learned deeper about the viruses and developed a tool for cleaning the virus and his brother started to use that tool for cleaning the computers of his customers and this how it was distributed. His brother asked him to develop this tool with him and sell it and agreed on that. In 1995 he has finally completed his product and the first version came for dos and then it resumed developing and in between many problems the product came to be revolutionary and this how the Quick heal become what it is.
