THE COMPANY

Siblings Pavan and Rakesh Thatha were studying at IIT Mumbai and IIT Madras when they built IDAS, a product addressing the challenges of internet security in 2010. IDAS is a two-factor authentication solution that provides security against common and advanced hacking attacks related to identity frauds, phishing, replay attack and social engineering. In addition to providing high level of security, it is more affordable and easier to integrate and use than traditional alternatives.

THE CHALLENGE

The duo’s biggest challenge was funding their venture. They had bootstrapped the venture with limited funds, and were looking to infuse the venture with funds raised from investors. But they weren’t sure how to go about it or where to start.

THE SOLUTION

NEN helped by directing them to Chandu Nair, mentor and investor. Chandu helped the founders to focus on business development and fund raising while making changes or introducing services that helped scale the business. Vishnu Priya, NEN consultant in Chennai also, “directed us to companies for our pilot project and helped with evangelizing our company. This period brought in marked changes including new clients, which ensured that we could carry on with our venture,” Pavan said.
