Prateek: Has the pandemic acted as the catalyst for the much-required awareness about DLP Solutions? Why it is significant for the business?

Filip Cotfas: The COVID-19 pandemic has added the data concerns in India. The sudden shift to the work-from-home model has raised privacy concerns and security issues in all industries.

Remote work emphasized the key challenges being faced related to data protection and compliance with regulations. In the past few months, the number of cyber-attacks and data breaches has increased. India has recorded the highest number of data breaches along with the US and the Middle East.

All businesses need to take data privacy seriously and step up their cybersecurity measures. They really need to start rethinking the way they look at security and make the necessary changes to overcome the challenges of WFH.

We proactively educate our customers and partners on the new threats and scenarios that appeared due to COVID and advise them on mitigating the risks.
