NEW DELHI: After a successful year-long pilot, Microsoft India has launched its first full-scale Cybersecurity Engagement Center (CSEC) in the country.
Situated in Delhi, this first-of-its-kind center in India will bring together Microsoft capabilities to foster deeper cybersecurity collaborations with public and private sector organizations and build a trusted and secure computing environment, a critical enabler for India’s digital transformation. This is Microsoft’s seventh Cybersecurity Center in the world and will function as a satellite to the company’s Redmond Digital Crimes Unit (DCU). The company has also rolled out a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about cybersecurity among Indian organizations.
Announcing these cybersecurity investments in the country, Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India, said, “At Microsoft, we put trust and security at the core of everything we do. India stands at an exciting threshold today as we embrace the power of mobile and cloud computing. Data is becoming the driver of growth and innovation across every sector and will catalyze the 4th industrial revolution. We believe security of critical information is imperative for our corporate customers, just as it is vital to ensure security and privacy of citizen data and transactions. Our first investment towards this was setting up our local datacenters in India last year, and launch of the Cybersecurity Engagement Center is the second. Our cybersecurity investments in the country underline our relentless commitment to partnering India in realizing its digital vision.”
