A day after an alleged data breach that compromised the sensitive information of 3.5 million of its users, mobile wallet and payments application (app) Mobi­Kwik said in a blogpost on Tuesday it found no evi­dence of a leak, but would get a security audit conducted nonetheless.   “The company is closely working with requisite authorities, and is confident that security protocols to store sensitive data are robust and have not been breached. Considering the seriousness of the allegations, and by way of abundant caution, it will get a third party to conduct a forensic data security audit,” the firm said in a blogpost on Tuesday.
