Our product support is available 24 x 7, which is one of our strong points. Apart from active support, we always keep our channel partners updated with regular training programs.

Nisha Harshwal:- Q).What is the new challenges that you face in relation to the Indian market?

Mr. Sanjit Chatterjee:-Indian is a price sensitive market, where cost plays an important role that influences the buying decision. Consumers often gets confused with the number of choices available in the market. It’s seen that many new entrants have been trying to lure costumers floating low cost products; however are those products up to the mark and follow the required security standard? That is a big question.  Many brands do not have Microsoft certification, and it is seen that consumers often ignores the fact.

We have also seen that many consumers often do not renew their product after their license validity is over. So they get more prone to virus attacks.

Another challenge which we face is rural market, where most people are still not aware about their importance of using an antivirus software. So here educating people is highly necessary regarding cyber security and internet threats. We have been conducting workshops for this purpose across several states and we plan to continue this initiative.
