Innovation is the nexus of an unaddressed problem and determined problem-solver. And that’s what happened in 2015, when Rahul Sasi, the Founder and CTO of CloudSEK, realized that there wasn’t a comprehensive solution to monitor external cyber threats. There were internal threat monitoring solutions such as Anti-virus, IDS, and IPS, but these did not address the threats posed by the surface web, deep web, dark web, and internet-exposed infrastructure.
The goal was to build an Al-based threat management platform that detects, analyses, and reports actionable threats to organizations. In its first iteration, our platform -XVigil, was partly manual and partly driven by machine learning. In its current avatar, the platform is wholly automated, gathering and analysing 37 GB of data every day.
When the initial version was launched in 2017, we showcased the product to our friends in the industry, and within a few months, we had clicked our first order, from a US-based tech company. Over the years we have built a diverse team of ambitious individuals, whose complementary skills and working styles, has enabled us to serve 37 organizations globally.
CloudSEK expanded operations in India, South East Asia and Americas
