DeltaProactive Risk Management: Building A Shield Before 'Risk' Turns 'Crisis'

Date:   Wednesday , December 03, 2014

One of the celebrated American author and humorist, Arnold H. Glasow, once quoted \"Ideas not coupled with action never become bigger than the brain cells they occupied\". The same holds due value even today as many people have great ideas but few dare to turn those into reality. Similar is the story of Anshul Abhang whose idea took birth in his school days and he never let it die till it came into existence. While learning VB (Visual Basic) programming in school, Anshul and his friends developed a learning tool for their classmates. Few days later, they were fixed in a situation where one the friends changed the password and could not remember it to open their learning tool kit. Eventually, Anshul and his friends decided to bypass the security of their own software which they did successfully. This experience was a life changing incident in Anshul\'s life when he decided to take up cyber security as a career path and developed a strong passion in the overall security field.

In the pre-final year of engineering in 2007, FLUXONIX Corporation, the dream enterprise of Anshul, took shape. The company initially provided cyber security education and certification services to various corporate organizations and students. However, Anshul noticed that businesses saw a rapid increase in the number of cyber threats, information leaks and cyber security breaches which they earlier overlooked. Today, cyber security spending makes for one of the top most priority under the yearly budgets of corporates. Sensing the pulse of the market, FLUXONIX was segregated into two sub-divisions in 2010.One took its way as FLUXONIX Educational Services Pvt. Ltd. (FESPL), and another as FLUXONIX Security Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (FSSPL) which are now re-branded as LANTORIS Education and DeltaProactive Risk Management respectively.

Which Side Are You? Reactive or Proactive

Though most organizations understand the value of their data, the efforts made by them to protect the same seems deficient. According to a recent study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), business loss due to information leaks showed an increase of about 20 percent in the year 2013-14.Surprisingly, the cyber security spending by Indian organizations went down by about 17 percent during the same period. This indicates that for most organizations, cyber security is just a part of their check list until the siren really sounds loud. \"Unfortunately, a majority of enterprises in India have a reactive approach as they wake up only after they become victims of cyber attacks. We take a holistic approach towards this and look after the overall risk assessment with respect to People, Processes, Policies and Technology that covers the entire risk matrix of an organization,\" says Anshul Abhang, MD &CEO, DeltaProactive Risk Management.

Cyber Criminals are getting smarter day-by-day. They have found new ways of using a spectrum of computer intrusion technologies and techniques. For instance, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are a growing confront where criminal operators work on a specific motive rather than seeking immediate financial gains. They persistently steal valuable business information without even giving a slightest hint of breach to an organization. Enterprises on the other hand, do not impart necessary trainings to employees which results to more negligence. In most of the disconnected enterprises, components like firewalls, UMTSs & other peripheral devices, or even application layer security devices give different reports and there is no single framework that actually talks about the holistic risk index of an organization. \"We have got our own unique risk intelligence and analytics products like \'CISOView\', which combines all the intelligence in an enterprise, connects the dots and gives you a holistic picture of the overall enterprise in terms of your risk. We have set up our own framework around that, so that we can help organizations in combining this intelligence and make better decisions,\" adds Anshul.

Building a Strong Shield

Having operations spread across India, UAE, North America, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, DeltaProactive wishes to enter into the European and LATAM market in the coming year. \"Yes, we are moving towards a platform based company from the pure play consulting organization with some exciting next generation products built by our research & development team also this unique blend of platform and consulting will define its own league. These products will provide extraordinary defensive mechanisms but also offensive mechanisms for government organizations\" said Anshul. The company witnessed an upswing ride since its inception. It had even got two acquisition offers last year which it chose not to accept. DeltaProactive has been keeping pace with the latest technologies and envisions emerging as a solution based company to remain steps ahead in protecting the clients. The company has raised funds in three rounds of funding and is looking for more enduring opportunities to support its growth trajectory and help businesses build a strong shield against all security odds.
