Felix is a cybersecurity startup based in Singapore, providing machine learning Next-Gen Anti-Virus to fit all purposes.
For consumers, it assures the security of all applications on the computer and prevents any malware or hackers from causing harm. Plus, in High-Security mode, only the applications that consumers have used, malware-free, are permissible to run. For businesses and enterprises, the anti-virus is flexible and easily adaptable to suit any needs whilst maintaining extremely high-security assurance.
Our cooperation with Felix Security started in 2016; at that time, our client needed help with technology development. Felix's management team had experience hiring freelancers on the services like Upwork but then decided to look for a long-term, reliable, and trustworthy partner. Felix Security wanted to get the product to market in less time with the possibility to scale in the future, and the best way to accomplish this was by partnering with an agency.
ELITEX augmented the client’s expertise with seasoned engineers, who got involved in several parts of the work across multiple projects.
ELITEX provides software development, working on the front and back ends. Using Python for its network solution, they also worked on cloud services and a graphical UI.
From a front-end perspective, ELITEX developers examined the different parts of the product and advised on how it could be improved. It helped Felix Security to tweak the company’s technology side. Another achievement of our front-end engineers was developing a graphical UI from scratch as a fully custom solution.
On the backend, ELITEX engineers, in conjunction with the client’s in-house team, worked on building the cloud part and connecting it with the frontend side. Felix’s chief scientist was heavily involved in terms of the technologies used and provided oversight to the remote dedicated development team.
We had one main contact, who was a C++ genius. There was also a team assigned to UI Development and some people building out and maintaining the network solution using Python.
After the main part of the project was completed, the ELITEX C++ developer continued to work on further cybersecurity platform enhancement and updates based on new OS releases. Helped with the development of system program features to protect PC from malware or ransomware attacks and monitored user actions to identify potentially dangerous steps.
The ELITEX team demonstrated their excellent technical skill and expertise. They communicated well, maintaining a smooth workflow and offering fantastic value for money.
From a project management standpoint, while ELITEX handled the payroll of the team, Felix could maintain contact with the remote employees as though they were their own. The code was stored securely and could be used for further releases and changes for the customer to reference for documentation later on.
We were able to converse with their principal by either email, text, or phone calls whenever required, which made a big difference. They’re a professional outfit, not a team of freelancers working from their homes, which was what we needed.
During the cooperation, ELITEX experienced developers reviewed the existing code and gave recommendations on how to improve it. This helped the client to fine-tune the technology, enhance the product and introduce it to the market quickly.
For companies that function in the security space, it is crucial to ensure privacy and meet security standards and regulations. Following this, we can share the customer’s website and contacts upon request only.
