THE WOMAN BEHIND THE IDEA
A businesswoman, a single mother, and a sole proprietor, Anita Arora is the Director at Security Solutions. She started with a government job in 1994 at RVTI (Regional Vocational Training Institute) Hisar, Haryana, before her shift to the capital, spent hard times struggling to look for an earning to support her family. And finally, when she did, it was hardly sufficient, the dire need to meet the ends and tough circumstances pushed her to do something of her own. Without much knowledge of starting a venture, she headed out on her journey when she stumbled upon the dealership advertisement of ZICOM and that was the turning point, and today she stands strong with a successful venture in her hand.
In a conversation with The CEO Magazine, Anita talks about the achievements, and the position that Security Solutions has gained in a short period, how they thrive to provide best and unique solutions through specialized services to diverse industries helping to maximize return on ‘Electronic & IT Solution’ and a lot more;

Shed light on your team, what ethos is maintained for the employees in your company?
At Security Solutions, we have ensured hiring a qualified set of employees and built a team of value. We arrange training sessions for our employees for each of our products to help them comprehend the services and easily and further gain knowledge and expertise. We provide a very humble, easy, and healthy environment at work to maintain a balanced atmosphere for our technical experts, qualified engineers, consultants, and dedicated support team’s co-existence.
As your company grew, or re-grew from your pivot, what were the primary challenges?
At the infancy stage of the company, I have done every possible job that I could do; I used to deliver the products on a two-wheeler by myself. I was at a loss of technical knowledge that boiled me to be dependent on my employees and OEM and hence I faced a lot of losses and I realized the time has come for me to train myself to make the work easier for me and curb the losses.
How did you get where you are today, and who/what helped you along the way?
I have gone through my fair share of hard work and toiling for success and it has made me what I am today. I have worked through days and nights negating every possible distraction that came my way and the motivation to do the best helped me through. I have been lucky to be surrounded by people who supported my dream like my best friend Parveen Setia stood strong by my side and pumped me to perform better, helped me trust myself and achieve greater heights.
What do you think are the keys to professional and business success for women in India?
For starters, I do not feel there is a difference between men or a woman on business grounds, both the genders are sufficiently capable of achieving what they dream strongly for and in my journey, to say the least, this was never a hurdle thankfully. The field I am involved in has a certain level of male domination but that has never stopped me from doing what I do, it’s mostly knowledge and will that help you through the pace. I also have faced my set of challenges when people have underestimated my efficiencies but I have dealt with the same by providing high-quality work. I feel overwhelmed to be a part of this sector; it has given me a different identity of my own. I suggest everyone working hard in my field regardless of their gender should keep moving ahead, no matter the number of hiccups they face, there will always be a solution to it.
What does the future hold for your company? Kindly share your future goals. What are you most excited about?
My prime goal above all is to speed awareness regarding the security solution necessities inn our routines, all need to know how helpful it is for us. I am also looking forward to my YouTube channel that I have launched to enhance the knowledge of people about my industry, the products we offer and the tips about the same.
Anita summarizes the conversation stating her core belief, “Those who do not have learning, have no austerity, do not give to charity, and have neither knowledge nor character, have no good qualities no righteousness. They, on this Earth, are being who are loads, in the form of people and are animals that simple graze.”
