Debunking Common Myths about Offshoring (Part 2)

Myth 5: Offshoring Compromises Data Security

Data Security

Many companies are concerned about data security hence they stay away from working with an offshore team.

However, most offshoring companies like Fortune Infosys take data security as an important measure in their daily operations. They follow strong security policies and procedures to keep their clients’ data safe.

We follow the IT security rules and access controls based on the role of the developers. Only those who have a direct “need to know” will have access to certain systems, computers, files, networks, etc. and grant the necessary amount of access and keep a close watch at all times. They also Ensure that sending any data in or out is monitored or even prevented for e-mail, Webmail, FTP, and data- and file-transfer Web sites (by controlling Web site access). Only essential Internet communications are allowed.

Apart from the above security measures at Fortune Infosys, all the employees have to sign up for non-disclosure and anti-data breach contracts. They also implement stringent information security policies within the organization and respects various norms like GDPR etc.

Moreover, the hard drives of all the systems are encrypted. On the desktop, Fortune Infosys also prevent any unauthorized data from entering or leaving the network via Universal Serial Bus (such as USB sticks). All the USB ports & CD drives are disabled for access. We also educate and train our employees on how to handle and protect sensitive data.

We also Conduct regular application/database security audits and network security audits. These audits can help to identify issues and potential vulnerabilities with the applications, databases, and devices on the network.

Myth 6: Offshore developers Are Not Skilled enough.

Skilled Developer

This is a major misconception. A country like India provides a huge pool of quality developers due to the popularity of the latest technology trends and higher availability. In reality, offshore service providers actually hire very talented resources with excellent skills and exposure. Fortune Infosys believes the knowledgeable & sound developers with a high level of morality are the Goodwill of their company and that’s why they are not making any compromise in hiring any developer.

Most Indians are good at mathematics. So, they have a good foundation for problem-solving as well as logic building. This helps a lot in the coding process. Because Indians have always been good in Maths, they are good programmers and coders.

Indian developers offer the best services to their clients. As the offshore companies in India are aimed at satisfying the global clients regardless of the type of their business and project size. India developers provide client-centric solutions while keeping the quality standards high with the help of various tools. More than 75% of the world’s CMM Level 5 certified companies are based in India. At Fortune Infosys, we also focus on the developer’s nature as well as skills. The good & cooperative nature of developers can give the best level of customer satisfaction.

Myth 7: Offshore Service Provider may hamper the integrity of the Intellectual Property (IP).

Information Integrity

This is a common fear. The offshore company may steal the codes or sell them off or may not provide full control over the IP rights.

However, offshore teams normally sign-up NDA documents assuring the security of the IP rights of the clients. The companies also can have a legal team and discuss these important points before initiating the contract. Whereas Fortune Infosys ink a full ownership contract to clients, in that they are giving full ownership over any code developed, or any data created for the project of the client in their strict NDA.

In most cases, the businesses get the full rights of the codes until and unless there is any kind of mutual partnership a month between the client and the developing team.

Myth 8: Offshoring takes More Time Than In-House Development

Most of the clients feel that a project executed by in-house teams is executed faster than the offshoring teams. However, the offshoring teams are quite expert in projects and they are well aware of the dos and don’ts of the project management practices.

Most of the developers e.g.  The Dotnet developers working in the industry are well aware of the development practices suitable for offshore models and they are well trained to manage deadlines.

Also, in countries like India, developers are well equipped in working for extended hours for important deliveries and mission-critical projects.

It’s also possible to hire a greater number of developers when the clients need to ramp up the team for unforeseen circumstances. In such scenarios having an offshore team provides better scalability & flexibility options than an in-house team.

Myth 9: It Is Not Possible to work on Agile methodology or DevOps model while working with Offshore teams.


Some businesses feel concepts of Agile Development or DevOps can’t be executed while working with Offshore Teams.

However, most of the successful offshore service providers like Fortune Infosys are best in their segment as they are well versed with these processes. They apply the best project management and development practices in-house to deliver projects of the highest quality.

Working with Offshore teams has been the key to success for many technical teams globally, however, these above myths always prevent people to try that.

I hope that with this article I could demystify some of the common myths.
