Astra ensures safety for Arun Bansal, while he does business
Arun Bansal is the Founder & CEO of ServerGuy, a global cloud hosting provider that offers managed WordPress and Magento hosting solutions to over 5000 businesses worldwide.
Being in this industry for more than 11 years, Arun founded ServerGuy back in 2009. Truth be told, back in 2009 e-commerce was picking pace and security definitely wasn't the top concerns of potential future store owners setting up new online stores. However, those who were security conscious prefered 'ServerGuy' and over these years security became a top concern of store owners and ServerGuy the top choice of hosting. ServerGuy offers a fully managed web hosting platform that helps businesses of all sizes harness the power of cloud computing without the complexity and cost of managing it on their own.
To make his platform secure for his customers and meet a certain compliance need, Arun already has an in-house security team that has done the threat modeling for his platform. But to ensure 100% uptime and offer bulletproof security to his customers by meeting all the security standards, Arun decided to go with Astra Security to do a security audit for his platform.
It’s been a year since Arun has been using Astra Security’s platform to collaborate with his internal team as well as with the Astra Security security engineers to discover such vulnerabilities and quickly fix them.
The cloud has opened up a whole new frontier for storage, access, flexibility, and productivity. It’s also opened up a new world of security concerns. Having a wide variety of customers using his web hosting platform, Arun had to make sure his platform is fully secured from any kind of security challenges.
Any security loophole, misconfiguration, or vulnerability would have been devastating not only for his own business but also for his customers. Arun wanted to make sure his platform is secured against data breaches, hijacking of accounts, insufficient due diligence, malware infections, and data loss. That’s how he chanced upon Astra Security and now he is relaxed knowing that Astra Security is taking care of all of it.
