McAfee Visits Ho Chi Minh City

McAfee representatives from India and Japan visited LogiGear Viet Nam from Feb 21 – 25. Their week-long stay entailed debriefing LogiGear staff on McAfee MX Logic and Mobile Security for the team to begin testing. Project manager Tien Nguyen and project lead Hung Le oversaw the sessions between LogiGear and McAfee.

As a good hostess, Nguyen made sure between meetings that Masaki Sumida of Japan and Gargeya Doddaiah of India maneuvered throughout Viet Nam’s infamous traffic to expand their palette at local eateries and awaken their senses within the country’s vibrant culture.

Although the representatives have long returned to their respective countries, Viet Nam’s stamp has made a lasting impression for Masaki who enthusiastically shares his experience with LogiGear Magazine:

1. What is it that you do for McAfee?

[I work in] Deployment and QA for Consumer Products.

2. What was the main objective of your visit?

We are working with the team in Viet Nam on several mobile projects. [The] main purpose of the visit was to give the team
product demos, discuss test plans and do team building.

3. What was your experience like working with LogiGear Viet Nam staff?

I’m glad to work with the team. They enjoy the challenge. Everything is new and exciting to me.

4. What are your thoughts on Viet Nam being the next big tech outsource country? It has been called the “next India,” any thoughts on that label?

I feel that young people in Viet Nam are leading the team and country. Big energy in the country—this is the biggest advantage and [the youth] respond flexibly to everything.

5. What kind of impression did Viet Nam leave on you? What stood out the most during your visit in Viet Nam?

Bikes everywhere. I saw it [in] pictures and books, but [it] was a surprise indeed. [I am] definitely coming back to Viet Nam. Not only [for] business, but also [as a] private trip.
