In 2014, Gurugram-based Anuj Rajain started Soteria under his father’s Rs 1,800 Cr Tenon Group. Today, Soteria’s security and surveillance technology monitors over 1,000 locations in India, Singapore, and UK across IT/ITes, telecom, retail, education, and manufacturing industries.
“Traditionally, the security industry has been manpower intensive. But the cost of manpower is increasing the day. I realised there was going to be an inflection point when a client would say they have a limited budget but want all our security services. This called for a different, technology-driven security solution,” says Anuj in an interview with SMBStory. The Tenon Group already had a platform for facility management and private security. Anuj went to the parent company and reviewed how things worked, and gathered information about the security gaps faced by clients.
