About the Customer

The customer is a leader in the cybersecurity space that offers worldwide brand and customer protection at scale by deploying customer and brand protection solutions that encompass all market verticals and digital service sectors that fall prey to scams.

The Challenge

The customer provides an adaptive, intelligent, real-time threat protection service for all types of attacks across multiple digital channels. Their current product is a comprehensive, configurable threat protection platform with advanced phishing attack monitoring, targeted data sources, threat analysis, and so on. Due to the rise in digital adoption in the pandemic, the client is experiencing rapid growth and feature request. Automation of infrastructure creation, Application Deployments, Quality control, and Monitoring had become the key to scale the existing platform, provide increased reliability, and innovate with new product features.

To gain a competitive advantage in the market, the customer sought a partner who could assist them in setting industry standard DevSecOps practice, Build and Deploy pipelines to automate their manual processes and provide reliability.
