Indeni specializes in the development of computer system protection software that can detect potential malfunctions before they happen; Their software preemptively protects critical information; Leitersdorf: We are proud of the opportunity we have been given to help them and to allow us all to rely on our emergency services.
Israeli start-up company, Indeni, who is based out of both Tel Aviv & San Francisco, is now partnering with New York City’s first responders (New York Firefighters and Police) to provide them an automated computer software program that is designed to preemptively protect the crucial information held inside their computer systems. Recently, Indeni was even added to the government’s official list of software providers for the United States.
To put it simply, Indeni’s software will automatically and proactively protect the system infrastructure where it is being used, as opposed to the customer having to figure out where the glitch in the system is, followed by various testing. This will make the systems of different organizations far more efficient and reliable. According to Indeni, their software will “auto-detect issues before they become problems”. Their website reads:
-Validate devices meet standards before or after a configuration change
-Be notified of performance issues that could become bigger problems
-Auto resolve issues that are no longer present
Summarizing the need for such a software, Indeni’s CEO, Yoni Leitersdorf, stated, “Today, emergency calls to the police, important government services, and water and electricity suppliers, are all dependent on advanced computer systems. These systems must be immune to hacking and available 100% of the time. This responsibility lies on the shoulders of information security professionals around the world. We are proud of the opportunity we have been given to help them and to allow us all to rely on our emergency services.”
One critical example of the need for a system like this can be found in 2013, when New York City’s 9-1-1 system crashed multiple times in one day for a total of near 6 hours. Thousands of emergency calls could not be received due to the time it took to repair the emergency system.
The company has raised tens of millions of dollars from various donors, and additionally, claims to already have some other notable customers, such as Bloomberg and Mastercard.
