Such outreach is very essential and critical at this juncture since we are looking at a steadily increasing our SMB footprint in the endpoint security space.”
Harish Rai, Country Manager, Comguard Infosol said: “In current security scenario, awareness is key to every challenge. However, we witness that people are not well informed about cyber threats. They look for solution only when the damage is done. This has been resulting into major data losses, worth in millions. Our 30-city drive was an initiative to get to the bottom of the scenario and educate the enterprises. We are overwhelmed with the response and it has proved beneficial.”
