An exclusive interview with IT.Voice,Mr.George Brostoff, CEO, SensibleVision,reveals his strategies for business in India .
Nisha Harshwal:- SensibleVision is a leading name in Data protection and IT security. What made you enter the India market?
George Brostoff:- India is leading the world when it comes to face-recognition technology. It’s not just the massive size of the market – it’s the rate of adoption. No other country comes close. The biggest example of this is Aadhaar. Nothing of this scale has even been attempted, and it’s happening on the world’s biggest stage. For global companies in the security field, India is a market that simply can’t be ignored.
Nisha Harshwal:- Whom does your company count as the top clients?
George Brostoff:- We’ve done major deployments with Dell and Intel, among other device makers and Enterprise customers. Our solutions have often been “white labeled” and don’t list our name brand.
Nisha Harshwal:- How is SensibleVision capable of offering solutions to India’s Aadhar system?
George Brostoff:- Our technology is perfect for Aadhaar because what we’ve been doing for almost 15 years is precisely what Aadhaar is trying to do. Face recognition systems have existed for many years, but they’re slow, cumbersome, and inaccurate. Especially with True 3D technology, we’re finally at a point where the practice has caught up to the theory.
George Brostoff:- Yes, we feel that the Internet of Things and the use of AI and machine learning will continue to expand in all global markets, especially in tech-savvy countries like India. With the increasing deployment of sensors and actuators as well as embedded capabilities emerging in a range of devices, a logical strategy for managing secure access to many of these devices will include the use of AI-driven face authentication. Certainly AI will play a key role in the new era of fast and accurate biometric-based identification.
Nisha Harshwal:- Is Artificial Intelligence going to be the next big disruption in technology? How are IT companies, especially SensibleVision preparing for the next wave of change?
George Brostoff:- At SensibleVision, we have been developing powerful AI-driven software as a key differentiator of our solution for several years. We firmly believe that AI, convolutional neural networks and deep learning will continue to evolve and impact every business regardless of size, industry or geographic location. Smart companies are developing strategies for deploying AI to derive actionable insight from the torrent of Big Data in ways that were never before possible.
Nisha Harshwal:- Networks of late been vulnerable to malware attacks. Do you have customised solutions to check such threats to confidential data?
George Brostoff:- Our focus at SensibleVision is on creating endpoint solutions that provide accurate and frictionless authentication for applications, data and devices. Strategically managing access to mission-critical systems is key to protecting sensitive data in any setting – Enterprise, public sector, NGO or foundations. We offer authentication solutions that are immune to the common hacks the companies and organizations have experienced when hackers have gained access to users’ passwords- causing frustration for the customers and embarrassment for the companies that experienced the hack.
