The inception of AAA Technologies dates back to October 2000, when computerisation was in its nascent phase and just beginning to rise. Mr Anjay’s farsightedness made him realise the need for computer control checks as organisations transition from traditional to reliance on computers.
This realisation led them to specialise in this field, and AAA Technologies hold the title of being one of the pioneers in the domain.
Although the resemblance is uncanny, the company’s name “AAA” doesn’t derive from Mr Anjay’s name. Mr Anjay proudly states,
Throughout their remarkable 22+ year voyage, AAA Technologies has been dedicatedly serving a diverse clientele of 2000+ organisations spanning various sectors, including BFSI, Government, Regulatory agencies, and Public and Private Sectors.
Although among the early starters in the field, as time progressed, the number of competitors increased for AAA Technologies; with their 22+ years of experience, they remained a premier independent firm.
Being the first company listed on the Indian Stock Exchange specialising in Information Security and Cyber Security Auditing and Consulting Services, focused solely on IS Audit, Information Security, IT Governance, and cyber security, they are empanelled by CERT-In (Indian Computer Emergency Response Team) Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India.
Clients trust them with their confidential data, as they provide cost-efficient security solutions aligned with business objectives. This trust results from AAA’s strong company culture, which revolves around Good Governance, Honesty, and Ethical behaviour.
With extensive experience, continual education, and a strong knowledge base, AAA delivers accurate, reliable, and innovative services across sectors, ensuring client satisfaction in all projects.
Initially, organisations were hesitant and questioned the necessity of AAA’s Services, as they relied on reputed vendors. However, over time, they recognised the value and importance of these services and began to embrace them for comprehensive information security and cyber protection.
