Digitization brings in speed and efficiencies, but it also exposes systems to security breaches and attacks. From hackers who target firms for blackmail to large-scale data thefts from tech and insurance majors, these events are threatening most companies worldwide.
Infopulse, a 25-year-old software services company has a medical remedy to these problems. Jan Keil, VP of Marketing at the company, specializing in security assessment and consulting, believes that prevention is better than cure. The firm offers proactive defensive mechanisms to counter cybersecurity worries with its end-to-end services. The first of the offerings is auditing or security assessment, which is akin to a preliminary diagnosis of the system. Another service package includes penetration testing and red teaming, which could be the medical equivalent of a vaccination ensuring the system to be immune to breaches.
The range of Infopulse services includes security event monitoring and incident response, critical infrastructure protection, secure software development lifecycle, business continuity management, and specialized security proprietary tools, like Security Compliance Manager. While providing a host of other services like SAP, Microsoft services, cloud, and engineering offerings, Infopulse uses all its capabilities to devise a holistic approach to security management. Furthermore, they have established connections with reliable partners and vendors to ensure that their clients can overcome security risks and avoid attacks.
We have a smart approach towards security and do not use methods where customers overpay. Hence, we tailor-make solutions for them to ensure their IT systems are protected from cyberattacks
However, large numbers of enterprises are not sensitized enough to security issues, until they or their peers experience a data theft. Since most companies avoid securing themselves due to high costs, Infopulse intends to ease this pain point. “We have a smart approach towards security and do not use methods where customers overpay. Hence, we tailor-make solutions for them to ensure their IT systems are protected from cyberattacks,” says Keil. Their comprehensive solutions include internal security, as well as external security against attacks.
Risks aside, security has become an area of compliance for organizations across countries. Infopulse’s information security management system helps enterprises comply with severe regulations, be it Germany national regulations or European Union’s standards like GDPR, with its Security Compliance Manager product.
Growing demands of customers and an ever-growing pipeline of products brought German major Bosch Security Systems to Infopulse back in 2007. A leading supplier of video surveillance, intrusion detection, and access controls, Bosch was looking for a reliable IT services provider. As an extension of a successful 10-year partnership, Bosch entrusted to Infopulse conducting an independent security audit and penetration testing of Bosch’s client-server and embedded solutions, thus, contributing to the development and testing of Bosch’s security video-surveillance systems even more. With the help of Infopulse’s client-centric approach, Bosch was able to reduce business risks and improve the security of its products.
As the digital environment grows, Infopulse is also extending its services to serve every new technology, be it Artificial Intelligence or cognitive computing. “It is important to change, as we cannot solve the problems of today and tomorrow with the technology of yesterday,” says Keil. The firm is also launching new service lines, to be in close sync with their mother company, Nordic IT major EVRY.
Infopulse is already present in eight countries across Europe and the Middle East and has customers in 18 countries worldwide. However, it believes that cybersecurity is a dedicated service that is to be delivered locally. It is hence expanding its footprint across the world. This year, they have a plan to setup business in Poland and are looking to add more delivery centers in the countries, where the company is already present.
