Journey of an Intern at Sectona

Internship is a keyhole for someone starting out to understand and get a first-hand experience of how things work in an organization. An internship gives you the opportunity to learn in a new environment where everyone is willing to help you as you are new to it. Like every year, this year as well Sectona conducted summer internship programs in the Research & Development department. This time around, as part of the internship feedback process, we decided to evaluate the intern experiences. Here is what some of our interns had to say about their experience of working with us - “The experience was wholesome, and I learnt a lot apart from the technical knowledge that I got over the internship period. A few of those were understanding how a firm functioned, role of all the individuals in creating and maintaining a product and working to the strengths of everyone here. I yearn to work for firms like Sectona who offer such privileges to grow and become a better version of themselves to all the individuals.” – Shantanu Das, Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal. “I worked as a Technical Writing intern with Sectona for 3 months. Working with Sectona was an excellent learning opportunity, especially since I was new to the field of Technical writing. Here, at Sectona I got hands on experience as well as valuable guidance. Personally, I loved the working environment. People here are easy to bond with and are liberal in lending a helping hand” – Sneha Naranje, The English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU), Hyderabad. “The main reason I wanted to do the internship is to get some technical experience and work on a real time project and this internship has fulfilled that purpose. I have learned about how to research and do analysis on a problem which is the main role of a data analyst. I am sure this experience will be useful for me in the future.” – BVS Revanth, Manipal University, Jaipur. For an intern it is important to learn and gain as much knowledge as possible because that is what gives them experience and it’s their biggest asset. We are happy that our interns were able to get it. It has been our pleasure to have them intern with us. We wish them all the best with their future endeavours.

Accelerating Trust in Hyper-Collaboration World

Special moment for us as we announce the general availability of our first product & release of Spectra Advanced Privileged Access Management for both enterprises and managed service providers. We have spent the last 9 months interacting with companies understanding the shift they are experiencing with privilege access security. What we have learnt from this exercise is that addressing user expectation is key to a successful privilege security program. With the explosion of cloud services and Apps & APIs, organizations need to constantly add capabilities that help them monitor & manage privileged accounts. It wasn’t long ago when IT was managing a handful of devices inside a locked room behind a firewall. Users today have gotten more savvy and are expected to accomplish more tasks. If users aren’t delighted, they find workarounds that leave gaps an expose organizations to security risks. Privileged accounts are still one of the weakest links in most common insider and cyber-attacks. If only we could automate more tasks to reduce human errors, collaborate securely with teams and integrate evolving cloud based devices and services, we would achieve modern privileged password security. Herein comes the rise of Spectra's Theme – Privileged User Security with Collaboration Hyper-Collaboration is needed today To rewrite the code for secure collaboration for privileged users, it is highly important to tailor security code with general activities of the users. Spectra helps with secure collaborative access with deep session management capabilities to address the constant need for IT Teams to collaborate seamlessly with partners and consultants. More Devices mean More Security Imagine the scenario where you can automatically discover assets across cloud & virtualized environment + automatically assign policies for internal and external users + provision administrator accounts to allow secure and fast access for users - Yes this is possible and we call this Adaptive Access for Privileged Users. Allow Access from Any Device Administrators are looking for flexibility and security teams always need to balance security. Power Administrators are looking for modern and quick ways of accessing a device with tools they love. Remote users must have isolated access with limited privileges and support users should get easy & quick access. Spectra handles dynamic user needs with advanced cross-platform access capabilities for hybrid cloud environment. We are re-imagining how today's privileged users will interface with not just on-premise devices but also cloud based systems. We are a dedicated and committed team motivated to resolve these challenges.  I thereby encourage you to learn more about us and our product here at Sectona.com
