Client Success Story 1

My ex-boss called me asking if we will be able to assist their team on a very complex project for the US Federal government. The project was behind schedule and needed some go-getters to bring it back on track. Through our joint efforts, the project was not only able to go-live on time, but we also took over the management of the entire application stack, including it deployment, hardening, patching and reporting. The total revenue we helped generate for my client is over $10 million and counting.


We are still engaged with this project and my ex-boss is now looking at 5 years of continued success and more.

Client Success Story 2

A healthcare provider had no Azure Security Center policies applied to their Azure environment they had just started migrating to. The Information Security Architect had defined and documented robust security policies applicable to Cloud environments but none of these were applied. We applied built-in policies and created custom policies, were missing, to make their environment compatible with CIS 1.1 and the Organizational Security Initiatives. We also created custom scripts to extract the compliance state of the environment so it could be ingested into RSA Archer for reporting. This reduced a week's manual effort to a script that generated all the data required in less than a hour.


The Information Security Architect is now able to emphatically demonstrate compliance with all security policies, including alerts and automated resolutions.

Client Success Story 3

This Higher Education institution was a client through a previous employer. The Assistant Directory there was close to retirement. She wanted to leave an IT environment that was stable, dependable and performant. Unfortunately, this was not the case with their Identity Management environment, which was deployed by their in-house team. The main developer had quit a few months, and the current team was barely keeping the system up, tackling tons of daily tickets with no documentation in place. After engaging us for Identity Management support, we stabilized their environment, cleaned up their identity and access data, fixed bugs in the custom code and documented their system design and processes. The Assistant Director retired with a smile on her face and the team she left behind is now assured we are there whenever they need us.

Vishal Masih founded Zephon in 2018 because of what he saw as a shortage of highly experienced cybersecurity people in the market and security budgets that too often couldn’t accommodate the necessary full-time experienced people most mid and large sized businesses need. 

In light of these two market conditions, Vishal has shaped Zephon to be highly focused on ensuring his clients leverage the most ROI and security from their current investment. He and his people are shaped with a mindset for identifying ways to automate and apply innovative solutions to help fill the security gaps. Built from the depth of his experience and leadership in the cybersecurity industry, Vishal is able to vet and recruit some of the most skilled talent for Zephon.
