Ashish Tandon, Chairman and CEO, Indusface elaborates on how the ‘Indian bred’ product company combats large security vendors, both global and local
Excerpts from the interview.
Indusface is a 100% ‘Make in India’ company. How tough has it been to make a mark amidst considering you are competing with established global brands?
We are all proud to be a ‘100% Make in India Company.’ All our business activities, including product development, R&D and management, are based out of India.
But we keep ourselves abreast with all the latest global trends and developments in the application security world. We have successfully thwarted malware and threats like Heartbleed, Poodle, and Shellshock among others. We have protected all our customers with accuracy and speed like any global security organization. That’s why we are trusted by major ‘Fortune 500’ organizations across the globe. We cater to over 700 customers worldwide, with a strong belief in ‘Make in India.’
We agree that the security market is crowded with many players of different sizes. The rapid development cycle of cyber-attacks demands continuous innovation and quick action by security vendors. Quite often the larger players are slow to respond to such needs due to their stringent and elaborate processes. Only agile players can keep pace with the ever smart hackers. Indusface is the only player that claims to be a true ‘Total Application Security’ (TAS) provider that can ‘Detect, Protect & Monitor’ all applications for its customers on a continuous basis, backed with zero false positive promise.
How can CIOs build a robust security posture across the multi-vector threat landscape spanning mobile, social, web?
As audiences are moving quickly into the social web, so are the attacks. Additionally, as emerging operating systems/platforms and mobile devices become more popular, they are more likely to be targeted. At the same time, attackers are also increasing the number of traditional attacks on personal computers, by quickly changing tactics and adding new twists to old plots. CIOs and CISOs must opt for products that are intelligent and pre-emptive, from companies that are continually innovating and developing new solutions and not merely announcing version updates.
Focused solution providers like Indusface not only provide cutting-edge security solutions, but have the ability to focus on issues at hand and quickly evolve and adapt to the new challenges. Indusface helps safeguard web and mobile applications using its flagship product IndusGuard, giving customers the distinctive edge of having total application security.
IndusGuard suite of products provides next generation customizable application security and compliance solutions with cloud-based, Security as a Service (SECaaS) models that are easy to deploy and manage. SECaaS application security solutions are delivered as a ‘pay as you go’ model which is entirely a cost-effective Opex.
