Quick Heal’s Seqrite launches cloud-based cybersecurity platform

Pune: Seqrite, the enterprise arm of Quick Heal Technologies Ltd., has introduced a centralised cybersecurity platform to counter cyberattacks that have spiked during the pandemic.

Seqrite Hawkk will offer a cloud-based cybersecurity management platform that will allow enterprises to manage multiple security products from a single console.

“We have introduced Seqrite Hawkk to help enterprises boost defence against malicious actors,” said Sanjay Katkar, joint managing director and chief technology officer, Quick Heal. “We will continue to strengthen the Hawkk platform by adding more next-generation products that will mark our foray into EDR, zero trust, data privacy and cloud-based network security.”

As remote working gained traction amid the Covid-19 pandemic, cloud adoption and, in turn, cyberattacks surged in India and elsewhere. According to the data from the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team, or CERT-In, India witnessed a 300% increase in cyberattacks in 2020. Rapid proliferation of endpoints, cloud-based apps, and smartphones with growth of distributed workspaces and a diminishing enterprise perimeter has exposed organisations to newer threat vectors and risks.

“Data breaches and their impact on firms’ reputation have only increased in scale over the years. It is therefore crucial for leaders to up their cybersecurity and prevent compromise of sensitive enterprise data,” Katkar said.

Seqrite claims to have successfully thwarted more than 13,000 cyberattacks every hour in 2020, including ransomware (double extortion), APTs and targeted attacks.
