We are known for next-generation firewalls.
But for us more than 200 people, the biggest workforce in the cybersecurity industry in India, Firewall is not enough. For us when you have sold a firewall, it’s like a foot on the door already. Our concept of selling a firewall is converging security and network together, simplified operation, less complexity and more importantly underpinned by a single OS. We are the only vendor who does not charge a license for SD-WAN, it is built into the firewall. When we sell a firewall, we have the ability to control a lot many adjacencies or security gears in the customer environment. The vision of the company is consolidation of products. Cybersecurity is the most segmented solution in the industry, we have more than 200 vendors in India and they are all thriving.
