Spanugo provides SaaS-enabled security solutions to its clients to improve the overall security infrastructure. It was founded by Doss Karan and Vaidhyanathan R in 2017. The security solutions designed by the company are agile and it has used the cloud and SaaS to deliver automated solutions for the clients.
Doss Karan, Chief Executive Officer, Spanugo, said, “As the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), your job is to make sure that your IT assets are safe from an external breach. You also need to comply with various requirements and standards. The only way to do this was an audit, but it is manual. We are automating validation,”.
