Partnering with a startup to build a Cybersecurity as a Service Platform

Overview

Cyvatar is a cybersecurity-as-a-service (CSaaS) startup based in Southern California. They wanted to show investors and prospective customers alike that Cyvatar was more than just a great idea, that it was a viable and scalable business. To do so, Cyvatar's Vice President of Platform Stephanie Simpson was charged with building a working prototype of an all-in-one platform customers could use to manage their security investments -- including Cyvatar CSaaS.

Importantly, the company didn’t want to spend time and money hiring a huge internal development team; instead, they wanted the flexibility to ramp people and skills up and down as the business needs demanded. Hiring and firing staff meant a much longer time to market to deliver their CSaaS offering, so Cyvatar trusted us as a design and development partner to help them ramp fast.

Desired Outcomes

  • High Quality Prototype 
  • Beautiful, Intuitive UI
  • Scalable Architecture 

The Solution

Hello Iconic first met with Stephanie and the Cyvatar founders to capture the scope and vision of the project. Cyvatar needed assessments containing hundreds of questions distilled into a set of user-friendly templates and capabilities built on consumer-facing best practices from StixFix and others.

Together we built short- and long-term roadmaps to ensure Cyvatar could introduce new platform features and upload new technology integrations on a launch-when-ready basis. The approach meant the prototype was releasable out of the gate, which built a tremendous amount of trust with Cyvatar.

Dozens of challenges
and power ups

If surviving against Tibb's attacks, while collecting as many eggs as possible to get the best high score, isn't challenging enough. The player can try to complete optional rounds of challenges, ranging from time survival to collecting an specific amount of power up eggs, or even stunning Tibb certain amount of times, in one run. The Power-Ups system allows the player to exchange the collected eggs from his runs, for more powerfull eggs. This Power-Ups can help the player in a whole plethora of ways, from helping you survive longer, getting double amount of eggs, slow down time and even collect all eggs on the field at once.

UI Development

The uniqueness of Hello Iconic’s small but mighty team of top designers, developers, project managers, and quality assurance experts was evident from the start. They could cover finely tuned UX and UI requirements in addition to all of the rapidly scaling integrations so that users would have an easy, enjoyable experience from the outset, rather than just a technologically sound solution peppered with friction and other evident flaws.

Without Hello Iconic, we couldn’t have made our tight launch deadlines, and we sure wouldn’t be able to keep on top of our ongoing feature additions and enhancements!
