Castled, is a next-generation, warehouse-native customer engagement platform established in 2021 by Arun Thulasidharan, Abhilash Thulaseedharan, and Franklin George. It helps customers run hyper-personalized marketing campaigns directly on top of one’s data warehouse. 

Traditional marketing automation tools came with the maintenance of pipelines prone to breaking while moving customer data. Castled provides flexibility in the creation of relevant and dynamic user segments in your warehouse with zero dependencies on data teams or SQL knowledge to do so. 

Wanting to go the extra mile to ensure the security of their systems, Castled began the search for the right penetration testing company that could help them with the endeavor. The search ended with them finding Astra Security as the perfect solution to help assess the company’s security systems.
