SecurityPal, a “consolidated solution” for completing security reviews and questionnaires based in Silicon Valley, unveiled a security operations command center (SOCC) in Kathmandu, Nepal on February 21, 2023.
The announcement was made in the presence of the United States Ambassador to Nepal Dean R. Thompson.
“To see a company like SecurityPal starting up and engaging so many dynamic people from Nepal, but also the interplay that’s happening with them and your customer base around the world is really something wonderful to behold and something exciting to be part of,” shared Ambassador Thompson. “I’m really pleased to be part of an event like today’s.”
Founded in 2020, SecurityPal already has a presence in San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower and New York City, and this new facility in Asia-Pacific further strengthens its global presence and solidifies its position as a go-to partner for security reviews and intelligent security and compliance knowledge graph management.
“SecurityPal’s Operations Command Center provides strong alignment to Apptio’s commitment to data security, allowing us to swiftly navigate the last mile of enterprise deals without any security posture tradeoffs,” shared Andy Hutchison, CISO at Apptio, Inc, a cloud data insights platform. “Their investment in Questionnaire expertise and technology makes them an ideal partner for our security team.”
The command center will serve as a hub for the company’s security professionals to collaborate, share knowledge and best practices, and provide customized support to each of its customers.
It is expected to help scaling companies and enterprises tackle the complex and evolving nature of security reviews and questionnaires.
Security questionnaires are sets of questions used to evaluate an organization’s security posture, policies, practices, and procedures, identify potential cybersecurity weaknesses among third-party vendors, and assess compliance with regulations and standards.
“For the modern security-sensitive enterprise, Security Reviews and Questionnaires are a 24/7 occurrence. That demand necessitates robust “always-on” operations. This is why we are thrilled to expand our global footprint and deepen our commitment to providing the best possible coverage for our customers and their customers,”
says Pukar Chandra Hamal, founder and CEO of SecurityPal.
With its latest feature, native language support in Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and more, the SOCC is intended to provide SecurityPal’s customer base with 24/7 dedicated support. This feature will serve to bolster SecurityPal’s proprietary “Augmented Intelligence” approach to solving security-related pain points.
Sunil Chhaya, GP at Kearny Jackson (former investor at Menlo Ventures and Series A backer of Gong.io), shares, “Most solutions in the market are over-reliant on artificial intelligence which has shown a tendency to be confidently incorrect, introducing nontrivial risk for deals and security teams.
SecurityPal has astutely deconstructed the problem and applied the technology at the right points of the value chain in conjunction with experienced in-house security analysts.
Simply put, humans and machines are much more effective at solving this problem than machines alone and the 24/7 SOCC means Advantage SecurityPal.”
The announcement of the SOCC comes after SecurityPal’s recent emergence from stealth and its announcement of a $21 million Series A funding round led by Craft Ventures during the fall of last year.
