Security as a Service
After discussing at length on Security and Compliance , Mr. Ramani introduced the concept of Security as a Service to the audience. Traditional method of ensuring Security involves the following:
Purchase multiple products from different vendors
Implementation of various technologies
Managing the technologies on day to day basis
Managing multiple renewals
In order to simplify the complete process of Security , TechGyan has come with a unique concept where first the scope of service is defined. Then a fixed cost is agreed upon per user per month which covers the cost of license plus implementation plus day to day management . This ensures that there are no one time high CAPEX charges and nor any implementation charges . This greatly simplifies the deployment and management of Security Services.
After the keynote , Mr. Ramani introduced the Customers to Suresh Kumar, who is a Security Specialist at Microsoft Mumbai. Mr. Suresh Kumar then did a deep dive into a few demos and explained the key Security concepts of the Microsoft Solution. The demos were absolutely lucid and compelling.
After the demos , there were a group pictures clicked and then the Customers were invited to join for Lunch .
