From the hills to the heights of
Wall Street: Jay Chaudhary

Jagtar Chaudhary known as Jay Chaudhary is in the limelight ,
shooting many places in the world’s richest list . But talking to
Jay, one will soon realize that list or his place on it is incidental.
For Jay, the joy of doing something new, exciting and value-
adding is what has driven him to work like the mountain person
he is.
Born in Panoh village of Una district of Himachal Pradesh, Jay
Chaudhary today is an aspirational figure for all , not just in the
tech industry. His is truly a rag to riches story, well from humble
beginnings to the pinnacle of the civilized and commercial
world. Born into a family with limited means in a limiting land
with no running water too, Jay used to walk 4km every day in the
not so easy terrain of Himachal Pradesh to go to school. Although
for most this might seem an inconvenience, perhaps these walks
in the lovely idyllic mountain paths gave him the necessary tools
to think deeply, meditate on his learnings and logic, honing his
skills, undisturbed by distractions that mar an urban existence.
Growing up in a focussed environment with beauty all around,
Jay Chaudhary grew up happy even in austerity. He studied hard
and was able to crack one of the toughest examinations to get
into Banaras Hindu University, now IIT BHU for a Bachelor’s
Degree in Engineering. Completing the course with flying colours
and academ ic hunger st oked furt her, Jay decided t o go t o t he
U SA to pursue his post- graduation and an MBA from the
University of Cincinnati.

Jay Chaudhary being an intelligent and diligent person was soon
lapped up by companies such as IBM, Unisys, and IQ Sof tware
where he worked in Sales and Marketing, understanding the
nature of the business when it comes to sof tware. Here is where
he perhaps learnt his skills in recognizing gaps in the market .
Af ter having for over two decades, Jay Chaudhary decided to go
his own way. Having lost his father at a young age, Jay was
brought up by his m ot her, whom he looked up t o. T he fem ale
influence and respect he had for the fairer sex were translated
to a true partnership with his wife Jyothi who not just motivated
his first venture but also funded it from her life’s savings.
Subsequently, all the ventures by this serial entrepreneur have
been a family undertaking with both husband and wife working
hard to make them a success. Family values from the Himachal
have done Jay well. Our lit t le resort in Palam pur, Rakkh Resort
too is a family-owned and operated business and we are proud
of people such as Jay and Jyothi who have made India and
Himachal Pradesh proud.
Jay Chaudhary’s first startup was SecureIT , a cybersecurity firm
started in 19 9 6. He later went on to start many companies. But
SecureIT was the foundation to all these. He was able to sell
SecureIT t o VeriSign wit h 70 of his em ployees becom ing
multimillionaires in the process. Again, the Himachali trait and
value of sharing have marked every thing Jay has done, standing
him in good stead with good people willing to put their effort
into his cause and visions. In our own little way at Rakkh Resort
in Palam pur, we do give back t o t he com m unit y and t he locals
who work with us.

Af ter the sale of SecureIT , Jay and his family were flush with
funds and his desire to do more just grew. He wanted to create
more startups but wanted to go about it cautiously. T he parents
of three children, Jay and Jyothi decided to approach creating
startups too as they approached their family planning. Spacing
out each venture, same as kids, Jay Chaudhary created many
com panies, one of t hem being t he fam ed ZScaler, a cloud-based
cybersecurit y provider. Ot her com panies he st art ed are
CoreHarbour, CipherTrust , AirDefense selling m any of t hese on
the way to companies such as Motorola.
ZScaler itself was started in 2 008 and went public in a historic
IPO in 2 018. 2 02 0 was a particularly great year for ZScaler with
remote working necessitating greater security measures that
were not satisfied by the traditional perimeter-based security
companies. Jay Chaudhary had seen this gap many years in
advance and was ready when the time came to scale up to
provide remote security for the highly mobile workforce and
WFH conmpanies. T he pandemic of 2 02 0 made this a necessity
rather than luxury, catapulting Jay Chaudhary and family, who
own 4 5% of the company to one of the world’s richest families.
From gazing at t he clouds in t he clear skies of Him achal t o
creating security solutions that make transactions and working
safe and secure on the virtual clouds, Jay Chaudhary has made
all Paharis and Indians proud. At Rakkh Resort in Palam pur, we
understand the value of education and the role it plays in
creating many Jay Chaudharys and so have been promoting and
support ing our local school. We wish t o host Jay Chaudhary if he
ever decides to travel in our part of the mountains and have him
interact with the kids of our villages, to inspire them into greater
effort and education.

I'm looking for. .
