KOCHI: Kochi-based cyber security awareness service provider Security Quotient is one of the 16 companies globally and the only company in Asia to be featured in ‘The Frost Radar’. The Frost Radar is a rating system created by the renowned market research and analysis firm Frost & Sullivan. The Frost Radar selected Security Quotient under the category of ‘Security Awareness and Training Solution Providers’.
Unlike other technology providers in the cybersecurity space, Security Quotient focuses on the human factor. Unlike machines, humans are psychologically vulnerable. Cybercriminals exploit this fact, and the increasing number of fake messages, phishing emails and other online scams corroborate this fact.
To counter this, Security Quotient creates behaviourfocused cybersecurity training solutions that help corporate employees to detect and prevent cyberattacks like Phishing and Ransomware.
From its offices in Kochi and Singapore, Security Quotient has delivered security awareness training for clients in 24 countries across four continents in 11 languages. Some of the reputed brands that use the firm’s service include Flipkart, Disney Star, Vodafone, Federal Bank and Sony, apart from 18 banks and financial service providers in the Middle East.
Cyber Security risks have evolved from stealing data to putting human lives at risk. For example, a ransomware attack on a hospital network can cripple emergency rooms and operating theatres and wreak havoc with human lives. Hence, our objective at Security Quotient is to enable people with the right knowledge and skills to stay safe from attacks, said Anup Narayanan, the founder and CEO, along with Thomas Kurian Ambattu, the Chief Delivery Officer.
