CloudDefense.AI recently got featured on Techcrunch for its role in securing the exposed database of Indian social media startup Slick. The database contained entries of over 153,000 users and had been left vulnerable due to a misconfiguration, which could have led to significant harm. 

Anurag Sen, our security researcher, discovered the exposed database and sought the assistance of TechCrunch in informing the social media startup, Slick. After TechCrunch contacted Slick on Friday, the database was promptly secured by the company.
