The 10 Most Innovative Tech CEOs Revamping the Future

Sanjay Patolia: A Dynamic Persona Sculpting New Cybersecurity Benchmarks in the Digital Era

Vibranium Alltech is a revolutionary antivirus company in the cybersecurity field that has been ranked No.1 Globally in performance tests by Pass Mark Certification. Even in the first year only of its inception only, the company has more than 1 lakh active users, over 11000 Active channel partners, and more than 100 distributors in more than 14 states across India.

One of the biggest threats to the digital world is the consistent ransomware attacks that target individuals, businesses, and governments. In 2021 alone, these attacks caused more than US$20 billion loss globally, disrupting several economies. It is important to understand the magnitude of the damage if people take into account the incidents that are not reported. Vibranium ensures a robust and distinctly intelligent cybersecurity system that defends the client from any form of data abuse and ransomware attacks. Amongst the 1 Lakh users of Vibranium, not a single ransomware attack has been reported yet.

The company has developed one of the world's most effective, automized proactive cyber security systems. It offers simple-to-install and operate, optimized, and powerful overall data protection against cyber threats and cyber-attacks. Vibranium is committed to making all digital lives simpler and safer.

A Far-Sighted Leader Spearheading Cybersecurity 

Sanjay Patolia is the Managing Director of Vibranium. With the vision of a ransom-free India, he has developed expertise and done a lot of research before launching Vibranium on September 17, 2021. As a field engineer, Computer service provider, networking infrastructure provider in retail and channel sales, and the regional distributor of innumerable products, companies, and Brands for Gujarat, he has been fortunate to have a ground-up journey of more than 20 years in the ICT field. Throughout his two decades of professional career, antivirus software is something that has always fascinated him.

While spearheading a largely spread distribution business, he experienced the gap between the real requirement of Indian users, transparent channel policy for channel partners, and the available options in the field of Cyber security. To bridge this gap, he decided to leave a thriving business to create Vibranium. Today, Vibranium has a highly skilled team to provide the best antivirus system and services in the market.

On a Mission to Make India Ransomware Free 

According to Sanjay, success is a journey, not a destination. He says that he has enjoyed the journey so far. The people he met during the journey have contributed a lot through sharing and experiences. He expresses that for the past two decades, he could see that the end users suffer helplessly through ransomware and other cyber-attacks, leaving them with no options but to compromise. He was forced by this victim-like environment to think about the possible way out. As an entrepreneur, he did not want the countrymen to wait for some other country to provide the solution. Sanjay claims that he feels inspired by the ideology of "Make in India". He visualizes that once the data is stolen, there is no guarantee of getting it back even after paying money. Such threats and the uncertainty associated with it shocked him from the core and made him resolve to make India a ransomware-free country. 

Transforming Challenges into the Steps to Success  

Sanjay mentions that in the early phase of Vibranium, the research and development aspects were smooth. One of the major challenges he faced was managing adequate time for the company. The team that was there had different skill sets, they were trained differently, they had experience in different domains and the task assigned was from a completely new domain.

As the decision maker, he shares that he had to transform his viewpoint of the problem and the solutions. On that note, he remarks that aligning decisions, working with the team, and utilizing the resources was the biggest challenge.

Sanjay claims that he has been working with a large network for a very long time but the methodology and the systems were entirely different and Vibranium required a completely new mindset to design business policies to make the network win. These challenges allowed him to create something that the world of cyber security had never seen before.

What Makes You a Good Leader? 

When it comes to leadership attributes, Sanjay shares a few that have worked for him. On that note, he says, "I have generated the courage to execute what I could see forwarding Vibranium. Another thing is that I have learned to work with people who are more skilful than I am. Throughout the journey I never allowed my focus to get deviated and I have relentlessly followed my passion. The option of being tired doesn't exist."

'Simplicity' at the Heart of Innovation 

Sanjay mentions that at Vibranium, there are two sets of target audiences- first, the end users and second the channel partners and distributors. While creating products and providing solutions, the team always looks at the existing gaps in the cybersecurity market.

He reveals that he witnessed the end users being not fully proactive and having to suffer data losses by cyber-attacks. Thus, the team created an antivirus that is proactive and prevents attacks. Now the end users are getting what they are paying for Vibranium. Channel partners had a lot of complaints regarding unfair and insensitive business practices. He expresses that at Vibranium, the team has designed uniform and fair business practices throughout the business network. To appeal to the company's target audience, it has removed complexity and created simplicity in the product, services, and policy. He further articulates that in the future, the approach is going to be the same.

Modern Data Solutions for Modern Security Issues 

In the Cyber Security and Data protection domains, any device which is connected to the internet can be attacked or hacked. Millions of new malware and threats emerge in the cyber world every day. The people who are working in the dark side of the digital world are unethical, they find new ways to damage every day, the practices they adopt are weird and unthinkable and so the traditional routine protection technology will not be able to match either the velocity or the efficiency of this dark horses and to combat these emerging threats. So, Sanjay says that it is important to adopt one step-ahead technology to provide data protection to the endpoint.

He declares that Vibranium was invented first time in the cyber security world- the Revolutionary Technology based on artificial intelligence and data science algorithm "Blue Dome". With this invention of Blue Dome, Vibranium is able to identify, detect and block past, present, and future threats on real-time proactive detection technology.

Sanjay claims that the ability of Blue Dome is unmatched and unbeatable behaviour observation technology of every byte of internet traffic through deep dive and deep look to identify and block malicious code and malicious files which can be compromised, modify, or stolen your data from cyber-attacks. In the digital era, Vibranium is the light that shows the path forward.

Looking at the focus area, he states that the role of a leader has changed drastically over the years. In today's world, it is not sufficient to have bold and ambitious ideas. The leader should also have the practical capabilities needed to realize those ideas. He also opines that the new age leaders will have to use the traditional approaches to help direct the company's success and will also have to create a culture that is forward-focused.

To Infinity and Beyond 

Sanjay believes that in the next fifteen years, as societies become more digital, data protection will emerge as the most critical challenge. On that note, he quotes Robert Mueller (FBI Director 2012) sayings- "there are only two types of Companies, those that have been hacked and those that will be". Vibranium has taken the wake-up India pledge and is out to train 30,000 Channel partners across India. This trained Indian "Army" of 30 thousand Channel Partners is serving the end users as their superheroes and providing complete data protection from cyber-attacks by using the latest and enhanced tools and tactics of Vibranium. Till now, the size of that "Army" is more than 7000.

Words of Wisdom Guarantees Growth in Work

Sanjay advises the budding CEOs to:

  • Never get stopped by a shortage of resources
  • Hold on the dream does come true
  • Be grounded
  • Be surrounded by people who have faith 

According to him, emerging leaders need to develop the ability to understand the shortcomings of the market, know genuinely what the end user requires, and strive incessantly to create a solution for the same. And in this journey, ethics and values play a significant role. "I believe in walking along with my team, growing together with my partners, always thinking of the ecosystem of different stakeholders, and never looking for short-term profits,' he concluded. 

Quote: "It's not enough to see tomorrow with today's perspective, we must see today with tomorrow's understanding – this is the lesson that I have learnt and I practice this every day."
