ZScaler founder Jay Chaudhry is the richest Indian American with a net worth of $16.3 billion, according to Forbes’ list of the 400 wealthiest Americans. Seven Indian Americans and one Pakistani American made this year’s list as well. Chaudhry founded the pioneering cloud-based security service in 2008 with his wife Jyoti and took ZScaler public a decade later.
