“What Salesforce did to CRM, we have done to penetration testing and ethical hacking,” says Barai, who moonlights as a magician. Barai started iViz 10 years ago while still in IIT Kharagpur. The company put penetration testing on the cloud seven years ago, one of the first to do so in the cybersecurity space. Now, iViz has nearly 500 customers, with some paying as much as $150,000. Ultimate validation for Barai and IDG Ventures, an early backer, came in 2014, when the company was acquired by U.S.-based software security firm Cigital.
