    As CFO, Aggarwal will be responsible for providing financial insight and analysis, and guiding key business initiatives. “It is a privilege to join Vaporstream and work on the crucial issue of corporate digital security, while working closely with our investors,” said Aggarwal. 

    “Mike and Vivek both bring a wealth of experiences to their new roles, as we continue to strengthen and build a highly stategic senior management team to take the business forward,” said Jason Howe, Vaporstream’s chief executive officer. “They will be instrumental in Vaporstream’s growth.”
