India is the second most cyber-attacked country in the world. As India has become one of the most data usage countries in the world, there has been a considerable increase in cyber risk vulnerability. While the present government’s push to integrate information technology as an indispensable part of the citizens’ lives is commendable, the vulnerability and misuse of personal, professional, and national security data are ringing serious alarm bells.
Cybersecurity in India has come a long way in the past few years and has gained huge importance in recent times with the thrust on Digital India.
Being an initiative under “Make in India”, WiJungle a player in Unified Network Security space has emerged as the Government’s New Face of Cyber Security. It is extensively serving to more than 15 ministries & PMO in the central government along with numerous state-level organizations.
The Unified product helps these organizations to strengthen their security framework by managing and securing their digital infrastructure with its consolidated capabilities of NextGen Firewall, Web Application Firewall, Hotspot Gateway, DLP, Vulnerability Assessment, etc.
Few of the major customers include names like Ministry of Defence, NIC, SAIL, NALCO, AAI, NTRO, NHPC, AIIMS, ICMR, NIFT, IIIT, FDDI, CIPET, IIEST, ICAR, Ministry of Railways, CBDT, POSOCO, ESIC, DMRC, Maharashtra Police, MP Police, Tripura Police, MSBTE etc.
The Data Security Council of India, the supreme body of data security in India, and Nasscom recognized WiJungle among the Most Innovative Product of The Year in 2018. Further, in February 2020, WiJungle was bestowed with NITI Aayog supported Aegis Graham Bell Award. It has also ranked among the highest-rated vendors in the Network Firewall market globally as per the Gartner Peer Insights report.
With Public Procurement Order (Preference to Make in India) 2019 for Cyber Security Products, where the government of India has bounded all departments/PSUs to give procurement preference to Indian cybersecurity products and further with ‘AtmaNirbhar Abhiyan’, WiJungle is subsequently looking forward to increasing its market share.
