TimesTech: Can you share your initial vision for Eventus Security and how it has evolved over the years?

Mr Manish: When we established Eventus in 2017, our vision was clear: to provide robust and reliable cybersecurity services tailored to safeguard businesses from emerging threats. Initially, our focus was on delivering top-tier network security and threat detection services to enterprises. Our goal was to build trusted partnerships with our clients, offering personalized and comprehensive security strategies.

As the cybersecurity landscape evolved, so did our vision. The rise of advanced persistent threats, ransomware, and increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks prompted us to broaden our managed security service offerings. Today, our services include SOCaaS, Red teaming, PTaaS, Breach Attack Simulation and Threat Intel.

We continue to invest heavily in people, processes, and technology, resulting in expansion in all key directions. From a 4-member team in 2017, we have grown to over 200 members in 2024. Our presence now extends beyond India, with operations in SEA, Middle East, and the US. We’ve set up our Cyber Defence Centres in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Riyadh for delivering SOC services.

We built our proprietary Eventus Platform to offer a wide range of cybersecurity services. The Eventus Platform is a highly scalable and unified platform providing centralized visibility and 24/7 monitoring. It combines advanced detection and response capabilities with next-gen SOAR, enabling quick detection and response to potential threats.

Our efforts have been recognized with several prestigious awards, including the ‘Top MSSPs Award 2023’ by MSSP Alert, the ‘Infosec Innovators Award 2023,’ the ‘Infosec Publisher’s Choice MSSP Award 2024,’ and the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, where Eventus was a winner in all three nominated categories.

Today, Eventus Security is dedicated not only to protecting our clients’ digital assets but also to enabling their secure innovation and business continuity. Our commitment to continuous learning and adaptation ensures that we remain at the forefront of the industry, helping businesses navigate the complexities of cybersecurity with confidence and resilience.

TimesTech: How do Managed XDR and SOC as a Service set Eventus apart in the cybersecurity market?

Mr Manish: In the rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape, Eventus Security distinguishes itself through the integration of Managed XDR (Extended Detection and Response) and Managed SOC (Security Operations Center). Delivered via the Eventus Platform and managed by a team of highly skilled experts, our XDR-powered SOC empowers businesses with comprehensive protection, streamlined detection, and rapid response to effectively mitigate cyber threats.

Eventus Managed XDR, or MXDR, is a comprehensive service offering that merges MDR and XDR capabilities. Leveraging advanced technologies and human expertise, MXDR (Managed XDR) handles telemetry data from different sources, correlation, threat hunting, monitoring, and incident response. It offers comprehensive visibility and holistic protection by extending security coverage across diverse environments, including email, cloud infrastructure, endpoints, and both OT and IT environments. Designed to adapt to the ever-changing threat landscape, our XDR service ensures protection against both known and emerging threats.

Eventus XDR-powered SOC complements this by offering continuous monitoring and expert analysis without the need for clients to maintain an in-house security team. Operating 24/7, our SOC is staffed by seasoned cybersecurity professionals who leverages “Eventus Platform” and “XDR” for proactive threat hunting, incident response, and remediation.

The combination of these services delivers a robust, scalable, and cost-effective cybersecurity solution. This integration enhances our clients’ overall security posture, allowing them to focus on their core business operations with confidence. Eventus Security’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technology and expert knowledge ensures we remain at the forefront of the cybersecurity industry.

TimesTech: How does Eventus cultivate and retain top talent, and how does this enhance your security services?

Mr Manish: At Eventus, we believe that our people are our greatest asset. “Empowering talent to secure tomorrow” is not just a motto; it’s the foundation of our success. We cultivate and retain top talent by investing heavily in professional development, encouraging an inclusive and innovative work environment, and offering competitive benefits.

We ensure our team is at the forefront of the industry by providing continuous training in the latest cybersecurity technologies and trends. Our Learning & Development (L&D) department plays a pivotal role in this by offering a structured framework for continuous upskilling. Our key employees hold advanced certifications, demonstrating their expertise and commitment to maintaining high standards in cybersecurity.

Our collaborative culture fosters knowledge sharing and innovation, enabling us to stay agile and respond effectively to the evolving threat landscape. Retention is equally crucial. We prioritize employee well-being with flexible work arrangements, mental health support, and career growth opportunities. Regular feedback loops and recognition programs ensure that our team feels valued and motivated.

By focusing on these aspects, we not only attract top talent but also retain a skilled and dedicated workforce. This directly translates into superior security services for our clients, as our experts bring the latest knowledge, unwavering commitment, and innovative services to protect their digital assets. 

TimesTech: What emerging cybersecurity threats and trends are you currently observing, and how is Eventus addressing them?

Mr Manish: The cybersecurity landscape is evolving rapidly, presenting new challenges and opportunities for businesses to protect their digital assets. We see a significant trend in the rise of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). As cyber threats grow in complexity, organizations increasingly rely on MSSPs like Eventus to provide comprehensive security services. By leveraging our expertise, businesses can focus on their core operations while we manage their security needs around the clock.

Another significant advancement is Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM). Traditional security measures are no longer sufficient in the face of persistent and sophisticated cyberattacks. Eventus implements CTEM to provide real-time visibility and proactive risk management. Our approach involves continuous assessment, prioritization, and remediation of threats, ensuring that our client’s defenses are always robust and adaptive.

At Eventus Security, we understand that the digital battlefield is constantly shifting. Our commitment to innovation and excellence allows us to deliver tailored, state-of-the-art security solutions. By embracing MSSPs and CTEM, we help our clients navigate the complexities of today’s cybersecurity landscape with confidence and resilience.
