How Would you define Netpoleon as an organization? What is the gap that the company is attempting to bridge?
Netpoleon Solutions India (NSIN) started its operations in 2015 under the name of TechKnowLogic Consultants India with the regional headquarters in Bangalore and branch offices in Dehli Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad. Over the past six years, we have positioned ourselves as a Value Added Distributor(VAD) providing cutting edge, Gartner recognized and Made-In-India solutions and more in the space of IT networking and cybersecurity for IT/OT/IoT platforms. With a prominent gap prevailing in the client infrastructure in the aftermath of work from home culture and Hybrid Infra adoption, and

offerings like Identity Security and OT Infrastructure security NGSOC, we are trying to plug in our solutions with niche features focused on Secured Remote Access, including ASM (Attack Surface Management) and threat intel platform, while also addressing many more dark web vulnerabilities.
