AIRAVANA – Discover the power of AI.

With the exponential increase in data violations and the rise of privacy restrictions globally, the Privacy and security of customers have become a top priority for corporations. The recent spike in cloud apps’ adoption and usage in an enterprise (where customers’ data is being stored, shared, or used on a daily basis) has elevated data privacy and data security risk by multifold.

It was in June’20 when the founders of this company, who come with decades of rich experience in building cloud-based security products, decided to take on this problem as they were fully convinced that the next decade belongs to personal data preservation across the enterprise cloud.

Lord Indra, the king of Heavens and Gods Is widely celebrated for his powers. Airavana, (aka Airavata), his elephant, also known as ‘Abhra-Matanga’ ( elephant of the clouds), guarded the Heavens over the clouds.

The company’s ultimate aim is to become a trusted leader in privacy and data security operations to make the cloud a safe, secure, convenient, and economical place for enterprises to store their customers’ data. Just like Airavana, the company is here to guide personal data on the enterprise cloud.

The biggest problem faced by enterprises that hold customers’ sensitive data is the lack of visibility and control of their data sprawl. The lack of visibility of personal data for InfoSec and Privacy terms can lead to privacy violations and data exposures. These mishaps are identified only after someone reports it or a data breach is detected, which can negatively impact a customer’s trust in the company and result in multi-million dollar penalties.

With its AI-Powered SaaS Platform, Airavana is capable of detecting customers’ personal data to offer enterprises a unified visibility across cloud applications with an easy-to-use interface. It further enables InfoSec and Privacy terms to enforce relevant policies to monitor and remediate privacy and data security violations.
