Businesses across the region are undertaking digital transformation initiatives to tackle new workloads through the modernizing of their existing infrastructures and the adoption of cloud. India is also witnessing a similar transformation. According to IDC’s latest report, 64 per cent of organizations are adopting cloud driven by the need for business agility, zero disruption and greater collaboration.

Since it just took a few minutes for our customer to configure the set of policies for all the users and without cost, they were really happy. As a result of this successful deployment we were also able to discuss additional services.”
Ananth Selladoray, head of data, AI and security at cloud-based platform provider Urbanise, Australia, said, “Urbanise is a 100 percent cloud-based organization, which means security is paramount for customers and other stakeholders.
