Establishing channel network was challenging initially as Sony used to be perceived as an expensive brand from System Integrator community
What challenges did Sony’s security division face in its initial days of operation in India?
Establishing channel network was challenging initially as Sony used to be perceived as an expensive brand from System Integrator community. It took us some time to convince that Sony is having wide range of competitive security products both, technically as well as commercially. Today, we have a well- established channel network across the country.
Which vertical is most affected by the threats?
We don’t see any threat as specific to any vertical and we are expanding our busi- ness in our competitive verticals.
