HyperX Cloud Alpha: I’m a Cloud Guy and You’re a Troll
The CEO of HyperX, the cloud computing company, has an anti-virus software suite and his employees don’t even use antivirus software anymore.
In a recent episode of his podcast, “The Cloud Guy,” Cloud Guy Sam Brantley (real name: Sam Tarrant) described a recent email he received from a former employee of his company, who accused him of being a troll for his use of antivirus.
“He says, ‘I would never even look at an antivirus program that didn’t work with your company,'” Brantle told the podcast host.
“And I was like, ‘Oh yeah?
Brantley has since apologized for his outburst.
In response, the CEO of Cloud Guy defended his employees, telling Vice News that his response was a joke.
“The fact that the internet is so rife with trolls and people who are not nice is a fact,” Brantie said.
“The truth is, our software is pretty good, we have a good track record, we are not trolls.
And you don’t know what you are talking about until you actually go through the software.”
Brantie did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Vice News.
