The last 12 months have been exciting for this group of ethical hackers who set up Lucideus in 2012. Not only has Cisco’s chairman emeritus John Chambers invested in the company, but he has also become a sounding board for its plans and strategies. Today, Lucideus is present across 14 countries and is growing 300% year-on-year, and its U.S. revenue is set to cross its India revenues this fiscal year. Its clients include marquee banks such as HDFC Bank, brands such as KFC and TATA Sky, and conglomerates such as SoftBank. Modi (left) says the company is well-positioned for global dominance in its category.
