In its bid to keep users’ systems and devices secured and protected against cyber threats with products that run latest and cutting-edge technology, Quick Heal has launched Seqrite Services and Quick Heal Academy. The initiative has been kick-started by Rohit Srivastwa, founder of JUNCO Technologies LLP, and Vishal Kumar, a Cyber Law specialist.
Quick Heal’s another vital mission is its determination to make users their own heroes in their battle of cybersecurity.
Seqrite Services will operate as a vital arm of Seqrite – the enterprise portfolio of Quick Heal. It aims to offer a wide range of Managed Security Services including Cyber Audit and Cyber Forensic, Security Consulting and Security Operations Centre (SoC) to enterprises and government organisations.
Running in proximity will be Quick Heal Academy, which aims to spread and increase cyber awareness among students of various age groups. The Academy will work in conjunction with universities, law enforcement agencies, and educational institutions. By offering online, classroom and corporate training courses in cyber laws, cybercrime investigation, and cybersecurity, Quick Heal Academy strives to build a strong and able force of cybersecurity professionals.
According to a NASSCOM report, India has currently around 50,000 trained cybersecurity professionals, as of 2015 while there should be at least one million such trained youths by 2020, given the rise in digital threats. With the aid of these two services, Quick Heal aims to help businesses and organisations become more aware of cybersecurity threats, their landscape and learn how to effectively mitigate the associated risks.
They say, “We can’t win if we don’t know the enemy”. And one of the strongest defences that we have against cybercrime is our awareness about it. At Quick Heal, we believe, being cyber aware is the ultimate weapon that anyone can have against all digital threats. And this very belief has been the driving force behind the creation of Seqrite Services and Quick Heal Academy.
