Founded in 1990, ACPL Systems provides end-to-end cybersecurity services by integrating complex technologies through strategic partnerships with leading IT companies. Seeing the huge opportunities for growth and scalability in India’s cybersecurity market, Aarti Bindra joined her husband as a partner in the company in 1994. Together, they helped to develop India’s first Anti-Virus Software “Smart Dog” and have successfully implemented their services across some of the most challenging industry verticals. “Over the last several years, ACPL has emerged as India’s most trusted cybersecurity and consulting business partner,” says Aarti.
Aarti and her team were introduced to the women-owned network in 2012 through an existing supplier that recommended WEConnect International’s Women’s Business Enterprise Certification to strengthen the company's existing network. Several years into her certification, Aarti has worked to build and refine long-term relationships with many of the over 80 corporate members in the WEConnect International database. To date, ACPL has closed business with IBM, Accenture, and EY.
“It generally takes longer to get connected to the right set of people in any organization”, says Aarti. “WEConnect International provides an opportunity not only to meet with corporations but also to present a business pitch to respective procurement professionals.” In addition to the connections made with corporate members, Aarti reflects on the importance of building relationships with other women business owners in the network. “We get to learn from each other, do business together, and become each other’s strength.”
With the new business and potential for unprecedented growth, ACPL Systems hopes to continue to prove their ability to provide the highest standard of services in their field. “We are showcasing that corporations should do business with us because we are extremely competent, not just because we are women-owned.”
