Segasec and Entersoft to strengthen their partnership in India
RBI cybersecurity framework
Tel Aviv, February 13, 2019 – India is among the top four nations targeted by phishing attacks according to a recent research. Consequently, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lately regulated that all Indian banks need to have in place a robust cybersecurity framework. This should include a Cyber Crisis Management Plan (CCMP) that addresses early detection, fast response, recovery and containment including protection against customer facing phishing attacks.
Phishing instances have seen an alarming rise worldwide, especially in India, where these attacks increased by 70% from July 1 to September 30 in 2018. Hackers target customers of different industries, however most attacks aim customers of the financial industry. Such phishing attacks jeopardize a company’s brand equity and customer trust that are the biggest assets of businesses.
Addressing this concern, Segasec, a leading cybersecurity and anti-phishing solution provider, and Entersoft, a prominent application security provider with a strong presence in India, are to strengthen their partnership to provide a consolidated solution for the Indian market safeguarding both inside and outside the perimeter of financial institutions.

“The chamber has been working in the cyber sector for some time now, and having such a strong relations between an Indian and an Israeli cyber companies are great example for the value the chamber brings to its members” added to that David Keynan, Vice Chairman of the Federation of Indo-Israeli Chambers of commerce (FIICC).
