Indusface constantly monitors and manages vulnerabilities to provide robust security
Being an application security SaaS company, Indusface secures critical Web, Mobile, and API applications of 3000+ global customers. Its fully managed platform integrates web application scanner, web application firewall, DDoS & BOT Mitigation, CDN, and threat intelligence engine. In a chat with VARINDIA, Venkatesh Sundar, CMO & Co Founder, Indusface elaborates on the current security trends, their security solutions, latest security technologies, management of critical events, further road map etc.
The present security trends
Considering how most of the apps are based on the cloud nowadays, securing the applications is a must have hygiene for businesses to go digital fearlessly. In this context, Sundar comments, “We at Indusface (A global SaaS company funded by the Tata Capital Growth Fund II) help businesses in their digitization journey and enable them to ‘Go Digital Fearlessly’. We do this by making it extremely easy for them to secure their Web, Mobile and API that are exposed on the internet. Indusface provides visibility of security risks, vulnerabilities and potential threats and provides instant protection against those risks on a continuous basis so that organizations can focus on their core goal of growing their business and leaving application security risk mitigation to Indusface.”
“Another enterprise security trend is the ‘Zero Trust’ approach to cybersecurity. With the kind of sophistication that hackers have, breaking into a company’s network is not a major challenge for them. The system ensures that a user can access such data or applications only after verification irrespective of whether the user logged in or not.
Business specific use cases and relevant context specific automation of security is another major trend that will only get bigger with time instead of just being brushed aside under a buzzword of AI/ML and deep learning. By integrating application risk context specific managed approaches to automate security, it is possible to track and respond to suspicious online behaviour in real time, thus, safeguarding the network and applications from exploitation of risks to your business with greater success. Enterprises are increasingly not just outsourcing security to professional service providers , but demanding more of these capabilities to be included along with security product licenses from the OEM for an even better, all-around protection of their critical digital assets,” continued Sundar.
Leveraging the latest security technologies
Indusface acts as a Trusted Security Advisor for clients. Sundar points out, “We use cutting-edge artificial intelligence, data analytics, and machine learning solutions to keep our clients a step ahead in terms of application security. Further, we also provide round-the-clock management of all the security processes as per the client’s needs.”
Indusface continuously monitors, reports, and manages such vulnerabilities and eliminates potential threats to the users, and provides robust security until the software vulnerabilities are fixed. Sundar says, “Our continuous monitoring and management of application security needs have made Indusface an internationally recognized choice for more than 3000 clients in different countries.”
Solutions to protect the infrastructure
Indusface offers four distinct product offerings that include deployment, management and continuous monitoring of risks as part of our offering. These are as follows.
AppTrana – End-to-end managed web application and API security solution offering comprehensive risk assessment, protection, monitoring, and acceleration
Web App Security (WAS) – a fully managed application risk assessment and comprehensive risk assessment through automated scan and manual pen testing
Mobile App Security (MAS) – a comprehensive dynamic application security penetration testing solution for mobile applications and the server API
SSL Certificates - powerful digital certificates for secure and confidential communications
Managing critical events and emergency incidents
Focusing on the critical event management Sundar perceives, “In today’s scenario, it is important for every organization to have a clear set of protocols to be followed in the eventuality of a crisis. There should be data backups for critical operational and strategic information. These should be kept separate from the company’s main network so that even if the network is compromised or overtaken by cybercriminals, it is possible to continue operations after shutting the network down. Companies are also adopting a modular approach to networks wherein despite being interconnected, it is possible to isolate affected systems and secure other devices/servers and equipment not yet compromised by the attacks. Last, but not the least, the speed of response is always critical. As soon as a hack or a breach is noticed, a holistic response including the cybersecurity team and affected stakeholders should be activated instead of trying to keep the incident under wraps and trying to keep running the affected application or network as normal.”
While sharing the further roadmap of the company, Sundar concludes, “From being a bootstrapped venture to now being the only one having a 100% customer recommendation rating and only one to be a customer choice in all segments, in the 2022 Gartner Peer Insight ‘Voice of Customer’ Report, Indusface has come a long way to establish a leadership position w.r.t product capabilities in this category. We have robust and ambitious plans building on this for growth. The company is aiming to double its revenue within the next 12 months keeping our focus on making a difference to the people we serve and achieving all-around sustainable growth in the years to come. We have forged partnerships with the world’s leading IT consulting firm TCS, doubling down on our digital marketing programs and expect to accelerate our ARR base to reach >15 million ARR within a year.”
