Indusface, a rapidly growing Application Security SaaS company, today announced the appointment of seasoned cybersecurity expert Tanuj Gulati to its Board.

Tanuj has over 20 years of experience in starting and operating cybersecurity companies to market-leading success. He co-founded Securonix, a company that pioneered User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) and is an established leader in the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) category.

Indusface will leverage Tanuj’s vast experience in building a successful go-to-market strategy for the Americas as well as strengthening its product positioning.
Speaking about this, Ashish Tandon, Founder & CEO of Indusface, said, “After successfully establishing ourselves in the WAAP market, serving 5000+ customers across 95 countries, the opening of a new office in the US was a natural progression.

With a proven track record of building world-class, multibillion-dollar SaaS platforms in the cybersecurity domain, his extensive experience in crafting successful go-to-market strategies for the Americas and his astute leadership in product positioning will undoubtedly bring immeasurable value to our organization.

“Cyber attackers don’t discriminate between large enterprises and SMEs. SMEs are, in fact, under more pressure as they do not have the resources to thwart these attacks. That is where AppTrana, a fully managed WAAP, comes to the rescue. The added benefit is that even regulatory compliance becomes easier by implementing a WAAP,” added Venkatesh Sundar, Founder & President, Americas, Indusface.
AppTrana is a fully managed cloud WAAP that bundles WAF, DDoS mitigation, Bot protection, API security and VAPT in one unified platform. AppTrana has been rated as a global customer choice in the Gartner Peer Insights Cloud WAAP report two years in a row. AppTrana has also been mentioned in the recently released Market Guide for Cloud WAAP report by Gartner.
