Our Mission

We aim to improve the productivity of our customers by tackling the challenges faced by their analysts day in and day out. We do this through centralising alerts, eliminating rework and retaining key knowledge.

Our Story

AlertFusion may be a very new business, established in 2019, but the seed of the idea for the solution it would offer had been formulating over a decade.

The story is best told by Jayanth Varma, founder and CEO, the man whose brainchild it was:

I spent many years as a security analyst and later as a security operations and engineering manager working for a number of large enterprise organisations. I found that, while the set-up, size of team and type of technology would differ from one organisation to another, the same basic problems persisted.

These problems included:

  • Too many processes being worked with each in its own silo
  • Excessive time spent reworking repetitive alerts in every team
  • Slow, manual processes for validating and responding to alerts
  • The need to operate between multiple ticketing systems
  • Lack of a unified platform for operational processes
  • Difficulty in customising multi-vendor technologies
  • High costs of scaling automation and orchestration
  • Loss of security knowledge due to staff attrition

I spoke to many vendors about addressing these problems, but none was willing to consider making the effort to develop solutions to fix these issues. So, because I felt so strongly that something needed to be done, I decided to take on the challenge myself.

I took a break to consider how I should approach the project and to develop ideas for a single technology that would counter all the issues. From my past experience I knew, that if I could create a platform that would unify and streamline the myriad of security processes, it would increase the productivity of analysts across multiple teams and, in doing so, improve the efficiency of the organisation.

In 2019 I launched AlertFusion, a unique technology platform that addresses the need for a multi-tenant solution and acts as a base platform for operations delivering high efficiency.
