Ensure the security of your business with these cybersecurity startups in India

The rapid evolution and proliferation of technology have created open access to businesses’ confidential assets for cybercriminals. Recent years have seen an increasing number of cyberattacks and data breaches. With significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the year 2020 was remarkable in many ways. If we look at uncertainties, cybersecurity risks last year have seen an upward graph. The remote work, or work from home business model has been the most target point for bad actors as employees shifted to local networks for their jobs. According to a report, 81 global firms from 81 countries reported data breaches in the first half of 2020 alone. Indeed, the number of data breaches in 2020 has almost doubled with 3,950 confirmed breaches, compared to 2,103 recorded breaches in 2019.

While this number will continue to surge in 2021 and beyond, companies should invest in advanced cybersecurity solutions to survive in the new normal.
