Christopher W. Klaus attended Georgia Tech in 1994, just one year prior to the Internet's public opening for personal and commercial use. In an attempt to predict the need for Internet security, Klaus created a company named Internet Security Systems (ISS); his company went public in 1998 and was acquired by IBM in 2006 for over one billion dollars. Klaus later founded the company Kaneva, Inc., a company Klaus directed to excel in the area of three-dimensional gaming. Although Klaus left Georgia Tech prior to completing his degree, he is still an active member of the Georgia Tech community. With his donation to the Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Chris Klaus became one of the nation’s youngest philanthropists.
