Sohail is a Senior Consultant at CATS Technology Solutions Group. He did majority of his adolescent growing up in Friendswood, TX, and then moved to New Jersey when he was 16 years old. Sohail received his Bachelor’s degree from DeVry University and his MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management. In addition to his degrees, he also has many certifications from comptia (Security+) and redhat (RHCSA).
When Sohail was 16, he realized his strong interest in the IT field. His English teacher pulled him out of class and had him watch a movie called “Hackers.” She told him she could see him one day being as good as the actors were in the movie. Soon after, when Sohail moved out of Texas and to New Jersey, he relied heavily on his computer to keep in touch with the friends he left behind. It was around the time that broadband Internet began, and he convinced his father to get them a cable modem so he could set up Internet throughout the whole house. When he was 17, he built his first Linux machine to behave as a router. It was at that point that he wanted to further his IT skills.
When Sohail has free time, he enjoys staying active by hiking, biking, and skating. He also likes to go camping, fishing, tinkering with everything, programming / hacking code, lock picking, watching tv and movies, and reading.
Although his long tern goal is undecided at the moment, Sohail hopes to take his Certified Ethical Hacker exam and receive his certification within the next few months.
