In his 21+ years of industry experience, Anuraag has created various software solutions. But, it is his in-house state-of-the-art digital forensics tools that have earned him global recognition. They have earned praise not just in India, but also in Europe, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and many other nations.

 

Why is Indigenous Digital Forensic Solutions Necessary?

The need for indigenous digital forensic tools has never been greater than in the 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' era, where the Make in India initiative is highly valued,” says Anuraag.

Currently, the Indian Cyber Security industry is dominated by many imported digital forensic products, which has a huge impact on the Indian government's budget. 

With the surge in the number of cybercrime cases, the need for setting up cyber labs and establishing cybercrime police stations is also on the rise. This is definitely going to shoot up the demand for indigenous cyber security and digital forensic tools in the coming days. 

Indigenous digital forensic tools are also important to safeguard a nation’s data security, as imported tools are always a question mark on protecting the privacy of a country, especially in defense. 

Producing in-house digital forensic solutions would not only help the country save money, but will also help in earning forex by selling these indigenous tools abroad.

At present, there is a large gap between advanced forensic solutions available globally and in India and Anuraag warns India to be prepared for the future, where the requirement of the indigenous tools will sky-rocket.

Along with his team of experts, he has already started working to bridge this gap by developing effective Made-in- India digital forensic solutions.

There is no success without a struggle! 

While developing the solutions, Anuraag faced many technological challenges. The Cyber Expert said, “In this fast-paced environment, technology becomes outdated before you can develop a solution. So intensive research is required in such fields. The smart way to win the game is to develop a forensic solution, not for the present but for upcoming technology.”

Some of the forensic solutions by Anuraag Singh gaining worldwide acclaim are:
