现在谁是最聪明的人?

现在谁是最聪明的人?

JP Mangalindan, Jessica Shambore 2011年09月05日
从网络安全,到网络游戏,再到云技术。《财富》2011年度科技界最优秀人物暨未来科技之星榜单新鲜出炉。“最优秀人物”花落谁家?

 

    谁才是最优秀的人?要回答这个问题绝非易事。因为很多人都拥有高智商,富有创新思维,精通管理之道,拥有神奇的力量,永远能够按时完成项目。《财富》(Fortune)杂志2011年度科技界最优秀人物(the smartest people in tech)评选遴选了在科技界最热门领域工作、具备上述所有特质的优秀人物。当然,他们的优秀品质远远不止这些。他们不但理所当然的是创新家,而且还深知如何成功地把优秀的点子付诸商业实践。

    There's no easy way to answer that question: Plenty of people have high IQs, creative ideas, management savvy, and an uncanny ability to always be working on timely projects. For our annual look at the smartest people in tech, Fortune scoped out individuals who have all those qualities -- and more -- working in tech's hottest areas. They are innovators, to be sure, but they also know how to turn a great idea into a great business.

 

约翰•海林:从黑客少年到移动安全教父
创始人兼CEO
Lookout公司

    约翰•海林自称,他在十几岁时就是计算机黑客。此外,他把蓝牙设备的通讯距离延长到了1.2英里,创下了一项世界纪录。所有这些,都使他成为最理想的人选,帮助个人和企业用户保护手机免受病毒、间谍程序和其他恶意程序的攻击。

    海林的移动安全公司Lookout为用户提供手机或平板电脑提供应用程序下载,并告知用户哪些应用程序正在窃取手机上的个人信息(通讯录、手机短信等)。Lookout公司的技术以云为依托,能够实时监控各种威胁,告知用户哪些应用程序或网站可以安全地使用。现在,该公司约有1,000万个用户,遥遥领先于赛门铁克公司(Symantec)和迈克菲公司(McAfee)等传统数据安全公司,它们提供的手机安全应用程序下载次数已经高达数十万次。

    Lookout公司先发制人的另一个原因在于,现年28岁的海林(自2003年起,就一直关注无线网络安全,远远早于智能手机兴起的时间)。之后,他创办了Lookout公司,直接瞄准移动设备领域,与众多竞争对手截然不同,因为后者大多脱胎于个人计算机领域。

Security: John Hering
Founder and CEO
Lookout

    John Hering was a self-described preteen computer hacker, and he holds the world record for extending the range of a Bluetooth-enabled device from a distance (he was 1.2 miles away). All of which makes him the perfect guy to help consumers and businesses secure their mobile phones from viruses, spyware, and other malfeasance.

    Hering's company, Lookout, offers a downloadable app for your cellphone or tablet that, in turn, tells you which of your apps are tapping private data on your phone (contacts, text messages, etc.). Lookout's technology resides in the cloud, and it tracks threats in real time to determine if an app or website is safe for you to access. Today the company has about 10 million users, putting it ahead of traditional data-security companies like Symantec and McAfee, whose mobile security apps have been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

    Another reason for Lookout's headstart? Hering, 28, built Lookout specifically for the mobile world (he's been looking at wireless security since 2003, long before the smartphone explosion), while many of his rivals come from the PC world, a completely different animal.
