CYBEROAM AND CYBERSTAR INDIA JOIN HANDS FOR STRATEGIC TIE-UP ON DLP SOLUTIONS
Strategic partnership aims to meet the long-pending demand for a customer-centric selling platform uniquely built around Cyberoam Endpoint Data Protection
Ahmedabad, India. 25 October 2010
Cyberoam, a leading provider of network security solutions, has announced a strategic tie-up with Cyberstar India, thereby positioning the partner as an exclusive national distributor for Cyberoam Endpoint Protection – award-winning data loss prevention software. The easy-to-manage solution provides seamless control with logging, reporting, encryption and policy-driven controls. It prevents data loss, enhances security, employee productivity and efficient management of IT assets while retaining business flexibility.
With this breakthrough alliance, Cyberoam, already a significant player in the Indian UTM industry, aims to create a greater niche for itself in the $15-20 million strong DLP market in India. This vision closely resonates with Cyberstar India’s emergence as one of the most promising distributor of IT peripherals, networking products and components across India and the SAARC region.
Mr. Tushar Sighat, VP-Operations, India, made the following announcement on the alliance, “Cyberoam chooses a partner based on their ability to provide the best selling platform to serve customer needs. We found many advantages in Cyberstar’s case including a value-added sales force, a well-qualified marketing team, sound technical capabilities, logistical services and a legacy of enduring customer relationships to distribute our products in the most cost-effective manner. Moreover, Cyberstar’s prior experience in handling e-governance and BFSI projects makes them highly suited to the demands of a DLP marketing environment.”
The demand for DLP products can be gauged from the enormous interest that is being generated by corporate customers. According to a survey report compiled by the Data Security Council of India (DSCI) along with KPMG and released in December last year, 87 percent of the more than 150 respondents rated Information Security as either ‘top priority’ or ‘critical’ to their business.
Speaking about this tie-up, Mr. Raj Rathi, Managing Director of Cyberstar Infocom said, “Data loss or theft has emerged as a major security concern for organizations of all sizes, which needs to be addressed to prevent exposure of intellectual property, customer confidential data and sensitive financial information. Cyberoam’s Endpoint Data Protection is an ideal solution for organizations to protect their data and information assets residing in endpoint devices. We are confident of this product and its acceptance by the enterprises, and will leverage our unique positioning in the security market to create a unique selling advantage.”
