Be it cyber threats or creation of knowledge infrastructure, Cyberoam is equipped for everything and will remain committed to the government’s Digital India mission, asserts Sunil Sharma in an interaction with ENN
Share your thoughts on PM’s Digital India vision and Cyberoam’s possible role in it.
The Digital India project is an ambitious e-Governance initiative and puts forth a broad agenda to take digital revolution to the masses. It is clearly aimed to drive inclusive growth by improving socio-economic profile of millions with ICT means. Cyberoam remains a committed partner to the government and shall pledge all required support for the success of the campaign.
We have been providing security and networking expertise to PSUs, defence and other government infrastructures. In a nutshell, while Digital India mission is a catalyst of ICT-driven knowledge, our job is to ensure that infrastructure and digital platforms remain secure from risks and threats, thereby ensuring holistic and uninterrupted progress of the Digital India mission.
How can the government work hand-in-hand with private firms to realise the Digital India vision?
Digital India vision is a drive that is designed on a massive scale and is aimed to reach millions, to bridge the digital divide. Just like any other mass campaign, this initiative also requires a format similar to PPP model. The government can facilitate mission objectives, directions and means, while the private participants and partners can collaborate effectively to ensure better awareness, implementation and reach of the campaign. Working collectively indeed holds the key.
Digital network has challenges like insider threats, malware, hacker and other network attacks. How does Cyberoam plan to counter those challenges?
Cyberoam brings proven leadership in devising innovative security that not only helps in the changing threat landscape, but also remains in tandem with business and IT goals. Moreover, our focus is not limited to products alone. Cyberoam also has the distinction for creating compelling knowledge and training infrastructure in network and IT security. We are committed to bridge the skills gap, too. Increasing the outreach of digital tools, digital learning and digital infrastructure requires that security be given its due role. This is where, we see a bigger role and great contribution, which includes extending our expertise for cyber threats and risk mitigation.
