Their application is windows based encryption tool and the operation is from Windows 98 - Windows XP. As we are in the depth of this service right from the beginning with our assorted technologies and expert professionals therefore we take pride to provide the best solution to our client.

The problem

  • The launch of Windows Vista and XP 64 bit triggered a global need among products and services providers to migrate their application to 64 bit. The client approaches us with specific time range of just one month with precise budget limits.
  • The original lead time proposed is 3-4 Man-months, however there is no system documentation shared.
  • All transactions and communications have to be maintained with the utmost secrecy and the internal team is to be kept unaware of the business implications of such devices.

The Solution

We sincerely appreciate our client regarding how they have shown their fervor to visit our company premises for review and know the progress level and ultimately their utmost satisfaction wave here a blow of optimism for the entire project.

Our systems security procedures demonstrate

  • We adopt BS 7799 inspired standards for information security management systems.
  • We have cameras placed at a vital point in our office.
  • The server room access is via secure RFID identifier alone and only the top management and main systems administrator has access to the server room.
  • Memory devices and mobile phones are prohibited entry in to the office. The management staff never allows mobile usage for carrying sophisticated mobiles that can be used for file transfers, cameras etc...

Having satisfied with the security levels maintained the client further discusses the communication protocols.

  • Private and Secure FTP connections where used files transfer.
  • Secured emails exchanges are made and single point of contact is to maintain.
  • Internal communications are identified and information is disseminated with absolute secrecy maintained in regard with the overall project stakes.


Work starts with review, on review the project estimates where revised there by reducing the over all cost by 45% from the original estimates.

Development is done in VC++, testing which is performed by the client, any issues; bugs reported are patched and relayed accordingly.

The project was delivered on Time.
