ARIM Technologies Shifts Focus, Changes Name Company Reveals New Product, Website, and Branding

ARIM Technologies (ARIM) is now Avnos. This reflects the brand’s shift from a services-based company to a product start-up. “We decided to go through this rebranding exercise because we truly believe in the importance of brand alignment and how it impacts the way our customers and partners view the company,” said CEO and Co-Founder Ivan Goh. The company started off in 2015, providing consulting services and reselling third party cyber-security products. It grew rapidly over the next two years, acquiring multiple customers across the region, and became profitable within a short period of time. Whilst working with enterprise customers on the services projects, the team started noticing a massive shift towards cloud adoption from the customers, particularly in cloud-security services adoption. “We also noted significant gaps in how other cyber-security vendors were addressing this shift,” said Ivan. “It was then, that we decided to capitalize on this opportunity, shifting our focus to address these gaps.” In late Q2 2017, Avnos founders embarked on a journey to create a robust cloud-based platform that will help redefine how enterprises view their network perimeters today. Ivan said, “Before we began this journey, we shared our grand vision of redefining traditional network perimeter technologies through the cloud with many of our customers around the region. We were thrilled and encouraged by the extremely positive feedback that we have received from them.” With a diversified pool of R&D resources across Israel and Asia, Avnos spent the rest of 2017 focusing on developing the first module of their product roadmap. Avnos EX, a cloud-based automated application whitelisting and management platform, the company’s maiden product was eventually launched in February 2018. While whitelisting isn’t a new concept, Avnos became one of the first few global vendors to provide true automation capabilities delivered through the cloud. Avnos also takes the concept of whitelisting a step further with its traffic control capabilities, which help to reduce enterprises’ cyber-attack surface significantly. Ivan believes the leadership’s decision to bring new innovation to an old concept was proven to be the right course when the US National Security Agency (NSA) releases a video podcast in January 2018 acknowledging that whitelisting has reemerged as an innovative cyber strategy and is currently in the process of getting whitelisting implemented across all of the different agencies (including US Department of Defense). Avnos, who’s regional HQ is based in Singapore, is the first cyber security start-up with a Singaporean and Israeli co-founding team. With offices in Singapore, Tel Aviv, and Jakarta, Avnos plans to expand its presence to Japan, UK and EMEA in 2019. ...

ARIM Technologies wins Best Employer in Technology Startups Award in Indonesia

ARIM Technologies wins Best Employer in Technology Startups Award in Indonesia

What does winning the best employer award mean for ARIM Technologies? “Winning the best employer award is testimony to the collective efforts that the team has put in to ensure an engaging and collaborative work environment.” – says Achmad Permadi, Creative Designer of ARIM Technologies. ARIM Technologies, established in 2015, has expanded rapidly in response to the exploding demand for Cyber Security expertise throughout Asia Pacific. To cope with the ever-growing demand, ARIM Technologies taps in to talented and passionate resources from around the globe. With team members from Israel, Singapore, and Indonesia, working with colleagues from different ethnic cultures, religious beliefs, and languages became a way of life for the young start-up. Building a diverse team from day 1 was a key goal for Ivan Goh, CEO and Co-Founder of ARIM Technologies. This was critical to drive innovations and to meet cultural demands, and attracting the right talents from across the different cities was imperative to achieving this goal. Winning this award will help boost ARIM Technologies’ continuous efforts to attract the best people in the industry. Empowering people to make decisions “At ARIM, we believe in empowering people to make decisions”, says Ivan. Decision makers take risks, and will make mistakes from time to time. As decision making shifts down the line toward employees, they will make mistakes, just as their managers do. But instead of taking away decision making authority, management should step in and provide the right guidance to the team. Every mistake is a learning opportunity, and management should help their teams figure out what went wrong and and how to recover, improve and grow. Employees become dejected and dis-empowered when they feel that taking reasonable, measured risks can lead to severe penalties. To think out of the box when it comes to resolving hard problems “Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship” – says Denzel Washington at the NAACP Image Awards, a quote that Ivan holds close to heart, and one that he constantly uses to encourage the team to always strive to think outside the box and to over-deliver in whatever you do in life. “ARIM, through its multicultural environment, provides us an opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best professionals in their respective field from around the world. Team members are constantly encouraged to think out of the box when it comes to resolving hard problems”, commented Sari Kurnia Dewi, Head of Marketing Communications of ARIM Technologies. Awarded as the Best Employer in Technology Startups Category Last Friday, ARIM Technologies was awarded the Best Employer in Technology Startups Category at Indonesia Most Admired Companies Award 2017 (IMACO). This is an annual awards event hosted by Warta Ekonomi, one of Indonesia’s most popular and trusted media with a focus on the Indonesian local market. This is a major milestone for ARIM, and especially for the ARIM team in Indonesia – a testimony to ARIM’s continuous efforts to focus on human capital development across the organisation. ...
