Quick Heal Launches in North America To Focus on IT Security for SMEs

Global Data Security Leader Builds Upon 22-Year Track Record; Brings SEQRITE Product Line to North America for the First Time

Boston -- April 28, 2015 -- Quick Heal Technologies, a leading provider of IT security solutions, today announced its entrance in the North American IT security market, targeting small to midsize enterprises (SME) with a comprehensive, easy-to-implement portfolio of proven solutions backed by more than two decades of experience.  

Available immediately throughout the U.S. and Canada, the Quick Heal SEQRITETM line of data security solutions offers everything an SME needs to prevent internal and external threats, attacks and malicious intents before they strike the enterprise. SEQRITE provides a complete end-to-end solution covering endpoint, server, network and mobile device protection, as well as cloud-enabled management.

 “This marks a tremendous milestone for our company and represents a big turning point for the state of data security in the SME market in North America,” said Kailash Katkar, Quick Heal CEO and co-founder, and a pioneering force in South Asia’s software technology movement. “We’re confident that our deep, global expertise in addressing the data security needs of SMEs across South Asia, the Middle East, Japan and beyond will serve our customers well in North America. We’ll work diligently to earn their trust with our proven, broad-based solutions and ensure that they spend less time worrying about Internet-based threats and attacks, and more time focusing on their businesses.”

With nearly 10 million customers in 100-plus countries worldwide, Quick Heal was formed in 1993. The company, which has experienced 46 percent year-over-year growth in the past three years, has established its North American headquarters in Boston under the leadership of Farokh Karani, Director - North America, Sales and Channels. Prior to coming to Quick Heal, Karani held director-level positions at Kaspersky Lab USA, Cyberoam and BullGuard. At Quick Heal, he is actively growing his North American team with professionals dedicated to 24/7 support, sales and operations, while also building a network of qualified resellers.

Addressing Pain Points, Pricing Challenges and Security Gaps for SMEs

The SEQRITE product line is priced and designed to address the specific needs and challenges of SMEs, and is ideal for organizations with five to 5,000 users, including those businesses looking to stretch the value of their IT dollars. The offering is especially appealing to markets such as state and local government and education, and is built to address the gaps left by alternative solutions, according to Karani.

“The North American market is inundated with solutions that are either too complex and designed and priced for large enterprises, or are SME-oriented but leave gaps in a network’s security profile,” said Karani. “In analyzing the market, we observed that existing SME alternatives don’t effectively cover the entire SME network infrastructure, including end-point, gateway and mobile, while others lack all the features that SMEs need for complete protection. This leaves the customer with the frustration of purchasing multiple point products and dealing with multiple vendors, which drives up the overall cost and complexity.”

Available immediately, the SEQRITE product line is designed to address all of these challenges, offering a full complement of competitively-priced bundles and modular point solutions that are built with simplified cloud-enabled administration in mind.
