The trust of customers has been increasing on Kaspersky products which not just allow us to sell the products with ease but to grow our business at an accelerated pace. Additionally, we get all possible support from team Kaspersky at every point of business so ultimately, we feel very honored and excited to work with Kaspersky.

DT: How do you look forward to build huge customer base by deploying Kaspersky solutions across various segment?

Prageet: Kaspersky has diversified portfolio to protect different critical layers of security, be it Endpoint, Email, Server, Data storage, Industrial cyber security, Threat Int etc. And today, if we look at segment wise scenario most of our clients are looking for single console of management and single vendor to serve all these solutions.

Prageet: We always work on our GTM strategy in advance which help us in achieving our set goal. Our key strategy remains direct reach out to maximum customers, existing customers for upsell/cross sell and net new prospect customers with key messaging that we serve solutions across all critical layers of protection with a strong track record of powerful threat detection capabilities. I believe that solutions which could not detect threats, can never protect your infra from internal as well as external threats.

We will also like to plan some events like CISO round table or CIO meet to invite key/focus 40-50 CXO’s and give them overview on Kaspersky advancement in portfolio and latest use cases etc.

Prageet: We founded our organisation in year 2010. Now we have 12 plus years of experience in Cyber security domain. From the day we have started, it is very much clear that we are here to serve our customer in terms of support as well as sales. Why I am saying support because this is our primary concern. We believe that our customer needs individual attention, not ready-made products. If we are talking about initial challenges, yes, there were some challenges. But personally, I have belief that if you have to grow, u need to face the challenges. It all depends how you take it. Because of our commitment to our customer, they believe that we are not just vendor, we are their trusted partners.
