SecurityPal, a Silicon Valley cybersecurity startup, is ramping up its global expansion efforts. The company today announced the opening of its first international Security Operations Center (SOCC) in Kathmandu, Nepal. The new SOCC was unveiled in a ceremony attended by Dean R. Thompson the U.S. Ambassador to Nepal, signaling SecurityPal’s growing stature and global ambitions.
The Kathmandu SOCC underscores SecurityPal’s vision to provide leading consolidated security and compliance solutions to companies around the world. This launch comes on the heels of SecurityPal emerging from stealth mode and raising a $21 million Series A funding round. With new investment capital and marquee customers like Apptio and Trovata on board, SecurityPal is poised to disrupt the global cybersecurity industry from its base in Silicon Valley and new center in Kathmandu.”
With dedicated offices in San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower, a significant customer-facing presence in New York City, and now a secure-by-design facility in a fast-growing regional technology hub in APAC, SecurityPal cements its position as the leading partner for enterprises who want to ensure that revenue and security are never ever decelerated because of Security Review work.
“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.”
The SOCC provides SecurityPal’s growing customer base with 24/7 dedicated support including SecurityPal’s latest feature: native language support in Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and more. This also serves to bolster SecurityPal’s proprietary “Augmented Intelligence” approach to solving this critical pain point.
“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,” says Sunil Chhaya, GP at Kearny Jackson (former investor at Menlo Ventures and Series A backer of Gong.io).
Foundational to SecurityPal’s delivery expertise, the SOCC helps scaling companies and enterprises tackle the complex and evolving nature of Security Reviews and Questionnaires. 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.
The SOCC is not only an asset for SecurityPal but also its customers. With state of the art security features and redundancy built in, SecurityPal has been trusted & vetted by regional security leaders. Now, SecurityPal will provide even faster and more comprehensive support to its growing customer base, helping them stay ahead of the latest security threats and the impermanent security and compliance landscape. With SOCC in place, SecurityPal customers can focus on their core business operations, confident in the knowledge that their security needs are expertly managed.
Pukar Chandra Hamal, Founder and CEO of SecurityPal, shares
“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”.
The announcement of the SOCC marks a significant milestone for SecurityPal, which has solidified itself as the go-to partner for Security Reviews and intelligent security & compliance knowledge graph management. With these capacity and infrastructure investments, SecurityPal is in prime position to lead the industry through the oncoming volatility as a result of artificial intelligence and emerging threat vectors.
