“A lack of investment in cybersecurity is like driving a car without airbags. While the car can still drive, you may not make it to Point B in one piece,” says Esteban Ribicic, Cybersecurity Studio Partner at Globant. “Right now, most digital platforms are operating without airbags. At Globant, we’re working to make sure that cybersecurity is embedded into the DNA of all of our projects from Day One, and this new studio is just another way to make sure our customers get the best solutions for their businesses.”
The Cybersecurity Studio will provide three specific security offerings:
- Security Assessment. Based on an assessment of customer security needs, a security expert collaborates with Globant’s Digital Solutions Teams to ensure needs are met throughout the functional and design phases of project development without compromising user experience. Ultimately, this service ensures digital experiences will be secure.
- Vulnerability management. The Globant team will monitor published security vulnerabilities that could affect customers’ digital platforms. The team will notify customers of the risk and assess how to contain and fix the vulnerability.
- Application Monitoring. Globant will monitor traffic on users’ digital platforms 24/7 and keep an eye out for security attacks. The team will handle events with strict predefined protocols to contain and mitigate potential incidents.
“It’s undeniable that security vulnerabilities are everywhere,” furthers Martín Migoya, CEO of Globant. “We are in an era in which digital platforms should not just be a joy to use, but also provide users confidence that they are secure. This is why this new studio is so important, as we continue to provide our customers with top-level solutions for their complete business lifecycle.”
