With the announcement of a slew of measures that call for massive and rapid application of cloud solutions in the country in a digital-friendly budget, how do you plan to leverage the immense market opportunity created in the country?  

A report by  Gartner suggests that 85% of structure strategies will incorporate cloud delivery by 2025. This demonstrates how Cloud computing is gaining popularity and getting more current in our society, affecting  both small and large businesses.  While the business landscape is big, threat landscape is bigger.

As news of data breaches, ransomware, and hacks becomes the norm, it is implied that there will be a parallel shift in cybersecurity trends. Below are some top cybersecurity trends that will dominate 2023.

1)      AI-generated malware: While we all are a big fan of AI and machine learning and the many capabilities it offers, it is also a potential territory for cyber crime. The use of artificial intelligence and machine literacy to safeguard from these situations will be big. Through the use of technologies, cybersecurity tools and systems like intrusion discovery and response, trouble stalking, and incident response are being made more effective.

2)      Data Breaches – Organizations each over the world will continue to prioritize data. Guarding digital data is the main concern at the moment, whether it’s for an individual or a business. Any disfigurement or weakness in your computer’s software or cyber surfer could allow hackers access to your sensitive data.

3)      Cloud security– The need to secure these means grows as further businesses move their data and operations to the cloud. This entails making sure that data is shielded both during conveyance and while it’s stored, as well as that cloud structure is duly configured to circumscribe access.

Please brief us on the kind of service support you extend to your channel partners?   

At DNIF HYPERCLOUD, we offer three distinctive benefits- a simple platform, cost-effective rates, and real- time visibility into the rouble geography. Some of our USPs are cost effectiveness at scale. A large dataset means visibility pretensions get limited by budget. SIEM is precious. We have reinvented event storehouses for analytics and cybersecurity and offer 365 day’s hot storehouses at the price of 30 days.

Ease of onboarding SIEM is extremely delicate and lengthy to apply. It can take weeks or months to complete the onboarding process. We also have an auto- discovery machine that doesn’t bear configuration for different biases. Just point logs to DNIF and forget about it. The automatic identification of log format and source type takes care of the on boarding.

Reduced alert fatigue and critic’s headcount – We use connected signals to reduce 300 pitfalls into 6 to 8 trouble clusters or crusade visualizations. This decreases the needed headcount for discovery and reduces judges’ alert fatigue too.

What kind of Partner training programs are run by your company to upskill your partners?

We provide training on all DNIF aspects starting from an administration training which consists of detailed orientation about DNIF architecture, integrations, component overview, etc. which is then followed by DNIF console training wherein we make sure that the analyst or user must know every minute detail on DNIF console and must become proficient to use the same, in case in future if someone wants to develop their own use cases for any new threat or parsers for any new log then DQL [DNIF Query Language]and extractor building training is also provided so that customize development also becomes a smoother task.

Navigating global data privacy and sovereignty laws has become a big issue for global companies. How do you look at the issue? 

Now enterprises, governments, and private citizens likewise have no way been more apprehensive of their data — in terms of volume, value, and ethical significance. This is arguably most apparent in the colorful conversations girding data sovereignty, which has become one of the most interesting data trends of the last several times.   For ultramodern associations, the significance of icing data sovereignty involves much further than simply meeting the nonsupervisory conditions of countries in which they do business. Enterprises must follow regulations while also striking an effective balance between their guests’ data sequestration enterprises, cybersecurity requirements, and business precedence.
