"Accelerated growth of cloud based business applications require better adapting security solutions that support its fast-paced scaling efforts," said Ashish Tandon, CEO and Founder, Indusface, "With AppTrana, we introduce revolutionary, continuous and managed application security to protect businesses with complete cloud security in a single, integrated platform while drastically reducing the spend."

Mr. Anil Shankar, VP-Solutions & Technology for Shoppers Stop, a global retailing group with over $440 million revenue and more than 14,000 employees, and an early user of the solution said, “Web Application Firewall ensures that hackers and DDoS attempts are blocked consistently.
