TAC Security was founded in 2013 by Trishneet Arora, a young entrepreneur passionate about cybersecurity. The company started as a one-person operation, with Trishneet having the vision to train college and university students to build careers in cybersecurity. 

2015-2016: Early Growth and Expansion 

As TAC Security gained more clients and recognition in the industry, the company started expanding its team and service offerings. In 2015, TAC Security launched its flagship product, ESOF (Enterprise Security in One Framework), a comprehensive cybersecurity solution for large enterprises. The company also expanded its operations to other countries, including the United States and the United Arab Emirates. 

In 2016, TAC Security raised Pre-Series “A” funding from Big Bull Mr. Vijay Kedia, backed by the Former Vice President of Cognizant, Subinder Khurana, and won “Startup of the Year” by ASSOCHAM.

In 2017, TAC Security acquired its first significant enterprise client (Airtel) for its services business and was appointed CERT-IN accredited cybersecurity firm. TAC Security received several recognitions for its innovative cybersecurity solutions and contributions to the industry, including being named the “G.Q.

2019-2020: Cybersecurity Threat Landscape and COVID-19 

The year 2019 saw an increase in cybersecurity threats, with more sophisticated and targeted attacks on organizations across the globe. However, TAC won various awards, including Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Deep Tech Startup of the Year” Cyber Security Startup by InfoSec Bridge Products (USA) and Trishneet Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40.
