Announcing The Global Launch of BOXSOC, A Unified SECaaS Solution by Clyst Technologies
CyberSecurity is a constant threat to businesses and private entities all around the world. Websites, Applications, Web Servers, and Database Servers get hacked every day, and some of those hacks can be disastrous for a company, especially for a small business. Hybrid work and digital business processes in the cloud have introduced new risks. At the same time, sophisticated ransomware, attacks on the digital supply chain and deeply embedded vulnerabilities have exposed technology gaps and skills shortages. And as hacking attempts become more and more sophisticated, it’s important to make cyber security a priority.
Clyst Technologies is proud to announce the launch of it’s 7-Dimensional Unified SECaaS solution, BOXSOC.
Clyst Technologies which is recognized by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Government of India, is an expert-driven Cyber Security and IT Solution company, with a strong Technical Team based out of Ahmedabad and Sales Engineering and Marketing driven from Mumbai. Srijan Nandi, Sumith Satheesan, and Chetan Vala speak onthe growing relevance of cyber security among the top businesses and their company’s way ahead.
Today while many websites have HTTPS as a basic firewall, why do you think there is a need for cybersecurity beyond firewalls?
Chetan Vala says, there are a few reasons why cybersecurity beyond the perimeter firewall is important. First, as we’ve seen over the past year or so, data breaches have become more and more common. This is because cyberattacks exploit vulnerabilities in web applications that people use every day – like email, social media sites, and even our banks. When these attacks occur, hackers access personal information such as addresses, birthdays, bank account numbers etcetera.
Second, businesses of all sizes rely on internet-connected devices to operate efficiently. From small vendors who sell online through e-commerce platforms to large corporations who manage customer relationships through their websites or mobile apps, every business relies on the security of their systems and networks! In short: when something goes wrong with your web browser (or any other device connected to the internet), it can impact everyone involved in your organization – from front-line employees handling customer service inquiries to back-office staff processing invoices
Today hackers are becoming smart and smarter day by day. While every business is becoming a tech business, how business owners should protect their digital assets?
Srijan Nandi says, one of the best ways to protect your digital assets is by using a secure website. This will help keep your information safe from cyberattacks and thieves, who are constantly looking for opportunities to steal data or install malware on your computer.
Moreover, it is important to ensure that all of your devices are protected by strong anti-virus software and comprehensive security measures such as two-factor authentication. Last but not least, make sure you back up important files regularly in case something happens to them accidentally or intentionally. By following these simple tips, you can help safeguard yourself against potential online threats and keep your business running smoothly.
Even today, cyber security is seen as a software product as per most Indian user psychology. How is that they can start considering cyber security as a service? (Especially in a market where service is not given importance)
Sumith Satheesan says, Cyber security is often seen as a software-related product and therefore, it can be difficult for users to consider it as a service. However, this perception is changing with the emergence of cyberattacks that are happening on an almost daily basis. In addition to causing financial losses and personal data breaches, these attacks can also pose a threat to national security.
Therefore, companies have started seeing cyber security as a service as an essential part of their overall security strategy. By implementing comprehensive solutions such as intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPSs), firewalls, anti-spyware programs, incident response teams (IRT), and secure communications platforms like voice over internet protocol (VoIP) or chat rooms/ communities/ social media portals/ web chats etc., businesses can manage risks proactively and protect themselves from any potential attack continuum.
How is the future of CyberSAAS? In a critical component like cyber security. Even a simple ignorance of renewals might end up in data loss.
Sumith Satheesan says a few years back we had similar doubts about any cloud-based services, and now we have BIG3 and alternate clouds and local clouds competing for the huge business pie. It’s just a matter of time, Organizations will realize Security as a service will be as simple and effective as any other cloud service.
As you rightly pointed out delays in renewal procedure, which could be a genuine issue in some organizations, definitely leads to data loss and in some case security getting blinded. So the biggest pro of having Security as a Service, is you are under continuous contract and agreed terms and don’t face such issues.

What would be the role of channel partners in selling your product and explain your GoToMarket strategy for the Indian market?
Sumith Satheesan says the Indian market is Dynamic with huge potential in terms of MSME to Large Enterprises and Govt. Indian Partners closely align with OEMs to position the unique offering to the right set of customers, as an OEM Would like to give a wonderful experience to partner, but we are creating “Security Delivery Partners (SDPs)” with different hierarchies based on the team capability and whether they are restricted to just B2C business of BOXSOC. We have Master SPD (Security Delivery Partner), who can also do B2B business, and our GTM is to create regional Master SDP while regularly upgrading our Standard SDP to Advance SDP in every region. The role of the Security delivery partner is crucial in case of remedial actions that are needed on a time-to-time basis and in case some incidence happens, an incumbent partner plays a vital role.
What are the industries your product suits well and what kind of channel partners you are keen to collaborate with?
Sumith Satheesan says As a Cyber Security advisory, we will say the “proactive security” requirement is not industry-centric, so we are targeting all. But since SOC requirement is also regulatory compliance driven, our focus is on BFSI, TELCO Service, MSME, and Manufacturing segment, where we mainly focus on the SMBs and SMEs for whom the high Capex of a SIEM solution and maintenance of high skill-set security team is a difficult ask. We are partnering with Channels that are already selling Security products like NGFW, End-point security, and other advanced solutions. Our pitch to the end customer is “no CAPEX, easy adoption SOC”.
What are your expansion plans and how are you planning to go ahead?
Sumith Satheesan says Our current focus is definitely India & SAARC markets, but we are also making strategic partnerships in other regions like Middle-east, ANZ, and European markets. These markets are mature for such an offering and through strategic partnerships, we are confident of taking care of GDPR or any country-specific Data privacy compliance and popularizing BOXSOC globally.
