Dear friends, you will be extremely delighted to know that SME Channels has stepped into its 10th year anniversary. Therefore, first of all, I would like to thank all the industry friends and well-wishers for supporting SME Channels for last 10 years. We have gone from strength to strength by helping the technology evolution and bringing closer to the stake holders in the market including the partners, integrators and distribution alignments. Your support has given us encouragement and trust to do experiment in terms of events related to the partners. In this decade of journey, we have seen the real evolution in the tech industry. From the floppy drives to USB sticks to cloud storage, from physical network to SDN and SDWAN, from physical storage to virtual storage, from physical computing to cloud computing, all these things have happened in this industry and we have brought in right information about this. We have seen how devices are getting connected through IOT technology, how block chain is changing the transaction, how 3D printing is changing the visualization, how AR and VR are impacting the industry. Similarly, how AI is unreasoningly impacting walks of life from small businesses to very large business. We also have seen how social media marketing is changing the business outcome of an organization. How cyber security is gaining prominence. So, in these 10 years we are able to write about these technologies and impact on your business. Now next 20 years is going to be a different era all together. Digitization would be everywhere; automation and robotics would come to the fore. Cloud computing and Artificial intelligence would control the businesses. New age companies would bring more opportunities for the partners. The manner the partners used to do business would be changed. The physical products would get invisible day by day; and virtual and software enabled products would be more prominent making software as a commodity of trading. Services would be at the forefront of margin earlier. So, there would be a lot to be seen in this decade. And I promise SME Channels would stand by its commitment to decode the next generation challenges and help the partners in finding right solution and right track to do a healthy business. Keep supporting us for years to company.

Skybox Security Wins SC Awards’ Best Risk and Security Policy Management

Trend Micro: Office 365 Require Second Layer of Defense Trend Micro Incorporated has announced that its Cloud App Security tool blocked nearly nine million high-risk email threats in 2018 as attackers continued to evolve their tactics, highlighting the importance of investing in multi-layered protection for online platforms like Office 365. The findings from Trend Micro’s Cloud App Security report detail how escalating email threat levels are exposing organizations to an increased risk of fraud, spying, information theft, and spoofing. As email remains a staple communication and collaboration tool globally, it is convenient for cybercriminals to leverage this integral, trusted platform for compromising attacks. “Organizations are increasingly looking to cloud email services to boost productivity and agility, but the Cloud App Security report reveals that— from credential phishing to business email compromise (BEC) and the use of unusual file types—hackers are employing a variety of new tactics to evade built-in controls, making it critical to invest in a second layer of defense,” said Kevin Simzer, chief operating officer at Trend Micro.

Skybox® Security, a global leader in cyber risk management, won the Trust Award for Best Risk and Security Policy Management for the second year in a row at the 2019 SC US Awards. The announcement was made during the 23rd annual SC Awards gala in San Francisco, presented by SC Media. The Skybox® Security Suite has been designed to help the most complex, security-conscious enterprises to bridge security management gaps within their organizations, intelligently automating processes to support risk reduction and compliance management. This second Trust Award win in the Best Risk and Security Policy Management category is the latest in a string of accolades awarded to the platform, including being named in CRN’s 2019 Security 100 List and JMP Securities’ 70 Hottest Privately Held Companies, as well as Cyber Defense Magazine’s InfoSec Award for Best Vulnerability Management Product.

Trend Micro Finds Shifting Threats Require Businesses to Rethink Security Priorities Trend Micro Incorporated has released its 2018 Security Roundup Report, which depicts a threat landscape that has evolved heavily through both approach and tactics. One shift in attacks that businesses should be aware of is the rapid growth of cryptocurrency mining, which increased 237 percent in the same time. Overall, attacks that capitalize on the human desire to respond to urgent requests from authority are on the rise, such as Business Email Compromise (BEC) and phishing, with phishing URL detections having increased an incredible 269 percent compared to 2017. Out of the 1.8 billion ransomware threats reported globally from January 2016 to December 2018, India accounted for 10% of all ransomware threats blocked by Trend Micro. And within Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA), India accounted for an astounding 30% of all ransomware threats blocked. Also, India was placed in the fourth position in the number of email threats blocked by Trend Micro, which stood at 1.5 billion email threats. Over 30 million malware were detected by Trend Micro in India in 2018.

Sextortion an Emerging Cyber Threat for Business and Employees: Barracuda Study Barracuda researchers have uncovered some startling new revelations about sextortion scams. In the past, sextortion scams were used as part of large-scale spam campaigns. Now, they’ve expanded in scope, even since Barracuda first highlighted this type of attack last fall. A recent analysis of spear phishing attacks targeted at Barracuda customers found that 1 in 10 were blackmail or sextortion attacks. In fact, employees are twice as likely to be targeted in a sextortion scam than a business email compromise attack. “The digital world has unknown vulnerabilities, and the emails often the weakest link in the security system with the highest touchpoint. Blackmailing scams are increasing in frequency, becoming more sophisticated and bypassing email gateways. Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks are now becoming one of the most critical problems that every organization must address. User education, vulnerability analysis, threat intelligence, good backup processes, security solutions and certainly common sense will be the go to approach to tackle this issue.” Opined Asaf Cidon, Vice President of Email Security at Barracuda Networks.

Targeted ransomware continues: Matrix Deconstructed Sophos, released a new report about a ransomware family called Matrix. The malware has been operating since 2016 and Sophos has tracked 96 samples in the wild. Like previous targeted ransomware, including BitPaymer, Dharma and SamSam, the attackers who are infecting computers with Matrix have been breaking in to enterprise networks and infecting those computers over Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), a built-in remote access tool for Windows computers. However, unlike these other ransomware families, Matrix only targets a single machine on the network, rather than spreading widely through an organization. In its latest paper, SophosLabs reverse engineered the evolving code and techniques employed by the attackers, as well as the methods and ransom notes used to attempt to extract money from victims. The Matrix criminals evolved their attack parameters over time, with new files and scripts added to deploy different tasks and payloads onto the network.

CASE STUDY

COCA-COLA SECURED ITS MANUFACTURING UNITS AT PIRANGUT AND KUDUS, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA WITH MATRIX BIOMETRIC DEVICE PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS: • Application: Access Control • Users: 1500+ • Devices: 40+ • Location: Kudus and Pirangut, Maha rashtra, India • Credential Type: Fingerprint (with Optical Sensor) • Industry: Manufacturing COMPANY PROFILE: Coca-Cola’s history began in 1886 and since then it has emerged as one of the most valued brands with a net worth of $74 billion. The company owns and markets more than 500 beverage brands across 200+ countries. Over the last 23 years, ever since its re-entry in 1993 in India, the company has gone on to establish an unmatched portfolio of beverages. The Company along with its bottling partners, through a strong network of over 2.6 million retail outlets, touches the lives of millions of consumers. Its brands are some of the most preferred and most sold beverages in the country. CHALLENGES: Coca-Cola has established its manufacturing units in Kudus and Pirangut, Maharashtra, India and was looking for biometric solutions to secure their premises. Coca-Cola required individual servers at both locations. Their prime requirement was to restrict unauthorized user entry into secured area. Moreover, they required user punch i.e. events for both the locations separately. However, shortage of power supply ports at both the locations was a major problem. Providing separate power for door lock, biometric device and exit switch was a concern. Coca-Cola was in search of a solution where the basic requirements of user events as well as power issue for devices are solved easily.

to resolve the challenge that shortage of power supply port presented, Matrix offered its premium range of biometric device which itself offers power to door lock and exit switch. Thus, Matrix biometric solution helped in solving both the challenges faced by Coca-Cola. SOLUTION DIAGRAM: COSEC biometric devices have the capability to supply power to door locks and exit switch/reader from the devices itself. RESULTS: • Restrict Unauthorized Users to Secure Premises • Reduction in Cumbersome HR Tasks • Accurate Maintenance of User Data

SOLUTION OFFERED: In order to overcome the challenge Matrix offered individual software platforms that act as a server for both locations - Kudus and Pirangut. In order

RAJAT SAHU

VICE PRESIDENT- MARKETING & ALLIANCES AT INSTASAFE TECHNOLOGIES PVT. LTD.

INSTASAFE SECURE ACCESS OFFERS NEXT-GEN SDP SECURITY SECURING THE ASSETS As cyber security threat in India is growing rapidly, it necessitates innovation at the solution layer and software defined protection is becoming more a buzzword. SME Channels spoke to Rajat Sahu, Vice President- Marketing & Alliances at InstaSafe Technologies Pvt Ltd. to understand the strategy.

What is the state of security in India? The state of security can be defined in two ways in India, there is an awareness among the stake holders for the need of security and to protect the critical data and networks. But on the other hand, there lacks some commitment towards prioritizing the IT security and budget for it. Many of the large enterprises are still looking at the conventional methods of security to stay protected or sometimes a take a piecemeal approach which is a little worrisome. Though there are clear cases of security breaches, due to the brand reputation loss many times these are brushed under carpet or kept secret. Few of the forward looking organizations are now looking more proactively at security due to the external pressures being built by the regulatory and compliance needed by other countries, such as GDPR – which pushed many businesses trading with EU to adopt security measures. Similarly the recent RBI, SEBI guidelines has also started pushing organization to be compliant. But that is just half of the story. As security itself needs to be thought as the corner stone of any enterprise architecture be it a B2B or B2 business to not only

24 SME CHANNELS MARCH 2019

protect the data but also to safeguard business losses in the competitive environment. What are some of the major challenges you see for the Indian market from the security point of view? As stated above the lack of clear guidelines and standards, which need to determine the security as a major issue, has to be addressed on a priority basis. The government policies and legal processes need to be established to deal with security and the breaches. As the cyber attacks keeps getting more bolder and sophisticated, the challenge to keep up to it with a huge gap in skill set availability will prove to be a major challenge. Further, the espionage and cross border cyber war will intensify, which could cause collateral damages for large organizations, utility and government agencies. The growing challenge to maintain a repetitive edge will be a larger concern for many organizations, with cyber attackers now adapting to data manipulation more than theft. In this back ground stronger policy and guidelines are essential with focus on enhancing skilled

workforce to supplement the same. With recent security breaches like WannaCry, has this made people more aware of the importance of security today? Yes, as specified earlier, there is a growing awareness about the challenges faced by ransomware and most organizations today started adopting the back up on regular basis to mitigate these risks. As the ransomware are becoming stealthier and sophisticated, the security solution providers are looking at more proactive mitigation of the attacks, to prevent large scale damages. Can you tell us about the latest technology and solutions from your company and the impact in the market? InstaSafe is one of the handful of developers of (Software Defined Perimeter) SDP security in the world today and with more than 100 Fortune 500 companies trusting its solution, it has reinvented the conventional way of security. From multiple dash board management, InstaSafe has made a single web-based management console that can

the challenges to fix the holes created by diversified networks and 24 x 7 business demands that put them at huge risk due to exposure to security threats at multiple fronts. These are some of the factors that will be driving the IT security demand, and growth.

SDP SECURITY IS BASED ON THE ZERO TRUST PRINCIPLE, THAT DEFINES, “DENY ALL AND ALLOW ONLY TRUSTED DEVICES” TO NETWORK effectively monitor and manage large distributed networks. Instasafe Secure Access – SDP Security is based on the Zero Trust principle, that defines “Deny all and allow only Trusted Devices” to network after it is Authenticated and allows only authorized assets within network, while restricting all other assets within the network invisible to the users, apart from eliminating the publishing of application IPs over the Internet completely. Thus, providing a strong protection against Spoofing, MITM, DDoS to APT attacks. Our esteemed users have endorsed that ISA has reduced their IT operational challenges by more than 35-40%, while the TCO is reduced by 25%. Being a SaaS security solution it also eliminates the challenges of hardware maintenance and management periodically to keep the networks safe and secure. What will the threat landscape look like in over the next 12 months? With the fast adoption of IoT to cloud, the cyber attacks have also changed their way and patterns that is creating a larger challenge for the organi-

zation to be more alert and proactive to counter these attacks and be vigilant. Hence, the demands for EDR to SOC have now been growing faster than anticipated. As mentioned before the kind of attacks such as Cyber Espionage to data manipulations to targeted attacks are expected to increase manifold. While the known actors like the ransomware, phishing, vishing, Malware will also be growing by creating complicated methods to monitor and manage networks from multiple fronts. What will be the biggest drivers for security spending in 2019? Technology adoption across segments are now de facto irreversible, that poses serious threat to most of the devices such as IoT which are not standardized or tested for various security challenges they bring with them. While the adoption of IoT has remained well ahead of the cusp in terms of the usage, the IT security of these have not yet caught up at the same speed, thus creating a huge gap. While cloud is also driving the multi cloud environment for users that has slowly broken the security perimeter for the organization. In such scenarios, the organizations are grappling with

How do you see India as a market for your solutions? India has been always a late adopter of technology and still at nascent stage when we look from our solution offerings. Having said that, as the analysts have predicted more than 10% of Indian market will adopt SDP Security for their network protection from security threats. We have seen a continuous growth momentum for our product and solutions by mid to large organization. As SDP security simplifies the complex network security demands with conventional methods. Tell us about your Go-to-market strategy. How do you empower your channel partners? Which factors do you take into account while increasing your partner’s foot print? Instasafe’s SDP Security is one of the handful technologies available today and we are been very actively promoting the same among the technology decision makers through various platforms at expos to events and conferences. Today our partner network has grown to more than 30 national & international SI partners in India and EMEA markets. That has resulted in our reach increasing by more than 600% among the potential customer base, apart from our close association with leading cloud vendors as their ISV partners. What is your focus in the market – Channel market or CIOs/ CISOs? We are been looking at both the segments simultaneously, as Channel is the key to our business growth, but simultaneously we work with CIOs/ CISOs to build the mindshare towards moving to a new age solution from the conventional mode of network and IT security. Hence, as said above we are working closely with our channel ecosystem, being one of the few pure SaaS solution providers to empower and expand our reach and add growth. Describe some of your biggest successes in India. To name a few of our success stories, apart from the utility and government agencies that have adopted ISA solutions, some of the leading indus-

PANKAJ GADGIL

HEAD- SELF-EMPLOYED SEGMENT, ICICI BANK

ICICI BANK PLANS BIG FOR MSME SECTOR, ROLLS OUT NEW POLICIES MSME in India is one of the most unorganized sectors but this is the sector which employees’ maximum number of labor force in India. The biggest challenges for the MSME is to access finance to grow their business. SME Channels spoke to Pankaj Gadgil, Head- Self-Employed Segment, ICICI Bank, about their plan for MSME Segment and the future endeavors.

What are the criteria and what are the offerings that ICICI Bank has for the MSME? So objectively from the bank’s perspective when we look at the MSMEs, we have been able to classify the entire requirement of the MSME into five basic buckets. And those are the principal needs for any MSME to operate. When we talk about these five needs, to begin with they are banking transactions, compliance, lending needs or the asset needs, cross borders which are either export or import, lastly the need of networking which is very critical for any MSME to grow. So we have kind of pooled our requirement and based our understanding into stages of setup and operating phase and the growth phase and diversification phase. That is the four phases that our offerings are all tuned towards which is something like 2x2. And obviously when we look at these needs, we look at how many of these needs can be fulfilled digitally because for an MSME if you ask me the most important thing is transaction and convenience comes before anything else. Typically for any business in a startup phase, there are requirements that have to be taken care of. We offer a special account which is called iStartup. We have built it by doing a lot of consumer research, lot of startup research and there

26 SME CHANNELS MARCH 2019

are certain requirement that the startup has from the bank which is basically that he will require a waiver on his loan, at least in the first six months, so that he can get his business to lift off. We have digitized this entire account acquisition process. We have got a smart form which is basically an entire account opening application done on a tablet, and we used the smart form of the tablet to open the current account also for the business. So we set up the business for account acquisition, their product offerings is very specific to the company which makes things easier due to the smart form. Typically, once the MSME has got setup and he has gone to the operating phase, then there are two things that he will require- how to make the payments and how easy is the process for making those payments. So, we have internet banking platform specially designed for the MSME, we also have mobile banking platform which is called iBizz and we have got a corporate internet banking platform for MSMEs where there are number of solutions that we have built which enable the customer to make payments very effectively. A very distinct offer that ICICI Bank has got for improving the collection efficiency of an MSME is called Eazypay which is a payment by the customers to the merchant bank, and this is both on

the web version and mobile app. It is an integrated platform which helps the MSME to connect very efficiently. So typically if an MSME has adopted an Eazypay platform and he is collecting money from his end consumers, as all his customers are uploaded on the Eazypay platform, the contact coordinates are put in by the vendor and then message is sent to the customer depending upon the platform that he uses, either a message can come on the mobile or an email where the bill completely gets populated, and there is a link also which is given along with this message where you can open the link, and all the payment modes that are available today digitally and also physically are present there. So the customer can then pay through cash also, you can pay through RTGS and NEFT, you can make payment by debit card, every other mode which is present including UPI. So that is a very powerful tool. How do you classify MSMEs into different phases? What is the presence of ICICI in Tier 2, Tier 3 cities? You have an app but when it comes to smaller cities, don’t customers want a personal interface as well? The MSME will always require assistance and


SME CHAT

this impact your business? We have started to build our own product, which is the GST OD, or GST Business Loan. It gives unsecured loans to customers, also known as an instant overdraft. And we have till now about 28000 customers who have availed this facility. We are planning to expand it further in the future. From the government’s perspective, there is a scheme which the government has which provides a fair guarantee, where there is a participation by the government through SEBI where there is SLRP kind of arrangement, and there is insurance cover which we have to buy from SEBI and part of the risk gets covered by SEBI. So there are some borrowers who also avail that scheme and they eagerly come to the bank for that.

“THE MSME WILL ALWAYS REQUIRE ASSISTANCE AND HANDHOLDING AT ALL POINTS OF TIME, BE IT THE PAYMENT COLLECTION, BE IT ACCOUNT OPENING.” handholding at all points of time, be it the payment collection, be it account opening. So, we have 4850 branches across the country. So in these branches we are manned by people who are trained to obviously first acquire the customers. We have about 1500 branches in semi urban cities and about 1000 in rural branches. All our branches are equipped to handle any MSME customers, be it an account opening or be it lending. Our branches are also equipped with the knowledge, education and awareness of these solutions, and they offer it to their local customer which then enhances the usability of Eazypay. It is available in many regional languages, so the customer feels comfortable doing online transactions. You spoke about handholding the MSMEs as well but because of technology, there are a number of challenges that you are able to overcome when it comes to MSMEs approaching you for finance. What are the other challenges that they face? What are the challenges that MSMEs face on the finance access point of view?

The knowledge of these subdivisions which make the businesses better and we are always pleasantly surprised whenever we do a customer event that people are always enthused about knowing the solution that we are always coming up with. So one challenge I think is to do with continuously updating new things that are happening in this space. The second challenge is that when they are looking at their business the reconciliation becomes a difficulty and with GST, wherein everybody has to go online and make the GST payment. The reconciliation is the large challenge for the MSME. The other thing is that with the advent of newer solutions on the digital side, sometimes there is always a fear of adopting solutions which could compromise on security. So these are broadly the challenges that we look at the MSMEs and for almost each of the challenges, we are continuously making an effort from the bank’s side to make sure that we overcome these. Now the government has also come up with its own plan to give loans to MSMEs. Are you partnering with companies in this at all? How does

You know recently the RBI came out with restructuring plan or restructuring loans than performing loans of MSME. How does ICICI Bank view this and what will be the impact on your assets because of this? So this policy was always there for some time. We have been always been a part of this as a bank and in fact RBI had only constituted this that there should be a committee which will look at the proposal and I have also been part of this committee. Obviously it helps the MSME because it gives MSME an avenue to present where there are certain delays that have come up, in realizing its corrections. This is another forum which RBI has come up with, that MSME can come up and give us the viability plan for us to take a call whether an asset needs to be lectured or whether there is a correction that is required. So it is a welfare move. This will also enable the MSMEs. This has given them one more forum where they can represent independently to the banks to take a decision. So it is going to be only helpful for the MSMEs. What are your secured and unsecured financing options available for the MSMEs? So when I talk about secured lending preposition we have term loan as well as overdraft and cash credit that we offer to our customers.

RAJESH SHETTY

MANAGING DIRECTOR, ENTERPRISE SALES, CISCO INDIA AND SAARC

EVERY BUSINESS ISSUE THAT YOU HAVE, CISCO HAS A SOLUTION FOR IT As enterprises have plethora of technology challenges, Cisco as company has solutions for these challenges. Rajesh Shetty, Managing Director, Enterprise Sales, Cisco India and SAARC, opens up about CIOs challenging roles in the ever-changing cloud landscape and the role CISCO will play in it.

Talking from a CIO space, where is the market heading now? How is CISCO technologies influencing on those? The biggest focus I would say are in three basic areas. One area that they are heavily focused on is the customer experience which can be an internal customer which is an employee, or it can be an external customer which is a customer. So they are very focused in terms of ensuring that the right level of experience is provided for their end customer and their internal customer. So, every discussion has got customer experience as one big area. The other area is in terms of automation, analytics, simplification. The advantage that we have from CISCO point of view that since we offer solutions across a wide gamut of products, we are associated in every single activity that the customer is doing. The third is security on an endto-end basis. One of the biggest drivers of that is basically cloud. If you look at how things used to operate like say 5 or 6 years back, used to have very few people who could access the internet, or very few people who could access anything which is cloud based. So all the traffic used to come to a central location and from the central location there used to be an internet-link to go out. Today in the cloud era, 40-45% of your traffic is actually going on to the internet. If you’re using Microsoft Office 365, if you’re using any PAS or SAAS based

solution or even CISCO Webex, everything is finally cloud based. From the branch itself, significant amount of your traffic is going on to the cloud. You have to think about how you get security embedded on an end-to-end basis. So, you know the CIOs and CXOs are spending quite a lot of time in grappling with this, these three areas. Coming from a CISCO point of view, what we have done is when we acquired a company called Source Fire, almost 5 years ago, we got one of the best AMP products. So, we took that AMP product and we embedded that in every single product that we make, that means it converts a switch into a censor, it basically converts a router into a censor, it converts an access point into a censor, whether you’re talking about an SDA van or any type of software defined architecture. Now, when you make a switch into a censor, that means every packet that is going you are now getting meta data out of it. Your router, whenever it is receiving or sending traffic onto the VAN it is again receiving meta data out of it. Now all this meta data helps you get information then you can automate and do lot of analytics in terms of what is happening within an infrastructure. Gone are the days when you talk about if I get attacked, I have to do abc, it’s a question of when I get attacked. So recovery has become more important than trying to prevent it. So, when you’re recovering, what you need is an intelligence

that this is an attack. So, we have one of the best intelligence sources which is a framework called TALOS where all the security incidents around the world get captured and then we try to figure out that how is this happening, where did it start from, how long ago did it start. And then we can give information across to our customers. We offer this free of cost, we don’t charge our customer. So, let’s assume that a security incident which has started in the US, as an example, through TALOS you get information and before you get attacked or when that attack is actually coming into your network, based upon the patterns, we say your network is coming under a specific attack and these are the actions that can be taken. So, the emphasis is shifted from say can I put a door to what is the action that I need to take and how do I know an attack is coming. Other thing which happens is most of the attacks have become very directed. A specific attack is typically written for an organization. Now you have heard of many attacks where they have gone ahead, the Bangladesh Bank as an example was targeted. So, there are so many of those. But since we have TALOS, since we have information, and we also have in the latest switches that we have announced we call it (ETA) Encrypted Traffic Analysis. What it does is, based upon the traffic that is going through it, from where it is originating, where it is destined for, you make an analysis of that and we are giving


SME CHAT

see the CIO role going away. I don’t see people not wanting to be CIOs. It’s just that a different skill set is going to come and frankly over a period of time my belief is that more and more CIOs will come from a business background. And more and more CIOs will become the CEOs of the organization. The business level discussion that CIOs are now having is very high compared to what was happening earlier. They are getting embedded into multiple different business units. And they are getting a cross-section view which makes them an ideal candidate to become the next CEOs. If you look at the pace in which the role of CIO is evolving because of the tech, it’s becoming increasingly strategic, they are having a say in everything. Digitization has now become core to every organization. If he is able to make that connection between business and tech then I would say he is in the ideal position to evolve. And that is why the CIOs role is changing so much. There are the ones to be the next leader.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT EVERYBODY THOUGHT THAT THE CLOUD IS THE SOLUTION TO ALL PROBLEMS. INCREASINGLY PEOPLE ARE REALIZING THAT CLOUD IS ANOTHER TOOL. guidance in terms of saying that this particular traffic is malicious, whereas this particular traffic is non-malicious. Because now since we are looking at every single packet, we know what benign information is going across. This wealth of information is also helping us in terms of the analytics and the automation part. Now this all is on the technology point of view.

and use them that can be done in two ways. One can be the standard used cases, which we have solutions already created and we deploy that. Then the second one is because we are exposing the APIs and we have partners who are our definite partners they can come and customize according to specifications of a customer’s requirement. So in that way we are able to meet both worlds.

Since the landscape is changing, how do you provide solutions to customers? How do you go about in the market providing solutions? So, it’s actually again a combination. From a CISCO point of view scale becomes very important. We are not in the consulting business where we go and do something which is very bespoke for our customer. What we do is we create solutions which are like 80-85% standardized. And the last 15% is what gets customized. So, the product that we use, for let’s assume the pharma industry, the products that we use for manufacturing, or IT or education, binary remains the same. Now since these are all software defined, and they are programmable, the manner in which to leverage

How would you describe the role of CIOs under cloud? What is your take on that? The CIOs role is evolving. What is happening is that everybody thought that the cloud is the solution to all problems. Increasingly people are realizing that cloud is another tool. So, his job has become very complex. He has to figure out how the organization can meet the customer experience part in an increasingly complex world. He has to figure out how security is going to get embedded into it. He has to figure out productivity, he has to figure out application. So the CIOs role is changing. Some of them are morphing into Chief Digitization Officer, some of them are morphing into Chief Security Officer. So, I don’t

What are we going to see from the CISCO kitty that is coming up, new acquisition, new product launch? Lots of acquisitions are coming up. Cisco and acquisition go hand-in-hand. In the past 1 year it has been very security centric. If you look at the Gartner quadrant and if you look at CISCO literally in all the technologies, we are in the leader’s quadrant and that is one area CISCO will continue to acquire talent and company. The advantage of TALOS is that since we have a large install base, we get to know about the problem faster than anyone else and then we can proactively act on it and take precaution. When WannaCry happened, we got information from multiple sources faster than anyone else and we could prevent that from happening to our customer base faster. Customer experience is another area where you will find evolution on terms of what is happening. The biggest focus will continue down the path of rearchitecting CISCO down the path of software solution, cloud based recurring subscriptions. What about CISCO Services? We are doing quite a lot on the services side. Obviously, we’ll leverage our partners very heavily. A lot of new areas where we get into is where we leverage our services. Another thing we are finding out is a lot of niche companies are coming in with lots of services experience so we are leveraging them very effectively. So, the focus on services will always continue. But we are never going to be in a situation where we compete with our partners. We are always going to look at complimenting them.

The partners need to identify the right solution provider and expand their business opportunity. This is of course a low hanging fruit which the partners can tap easily.

G

rowth of business email and messaging market in India is on an upward swing. The country is seeing huge transition in terms of industrialization. Government sponsored growth including smart cities and infrastructure development is on swing. Similarly, India’s start-up ecosystem is growing faster than in other countries. e-commerce companies are also equally very strong in terms of their growth. All these developments need solid organizational mail and messaging system for communication. These mail and messaging systems need to be solid in terms of security, scalable and strong in collaboration. At the same time, this software systems need to be cost effective also. So, if one looks at the horizon there are not many players who are serious in this market. To name, brands including Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, IceWarp, Zimbra, etc. are visible in the market and tray to maximizing their share. Pramod Sharda CEO, IceWarp, India & Middle East, said, “The mail messaging market in India would be around 250 million mailboxes. In total it would include Start-ups, SME’s & Enterprises using emails for business purposes. We offer Enterprise Email which is a complete communi-

cation and collaboration platform that includes Audio & Video Calls, TeamChat, Webmeeting, Storage & Documents. An All-in-one solution that fits across Industry verticals and segments.” IceWarp also offers Hybrid Email offering, which means co-exist with any other Email platform in the market on the same domain. IceWarp uses Cyren on its platform and are also powered by CISCO Email Security platform as an additional layer of security wherever required. Shivaami Cloud is one of the software partners in India, which offers Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365. As per Punit Thakkar, CEO & MD, Shivaami Cloud Services Pvt.

Additionally, Sheevami offer training to our clients on how to handle SPAM. He also admits that the market for mail and messaging in India is huge as the main source of communication in any organisation is the email. It means the opportunity for channel partners to enhance their business opportunity is also enhanced. It is the matter of how convincing the product is from the point of view of pricing,

support and features. Of course, organizations do have different needs and different paying capacity, which the partners need to understand prior to signing up with the vendor. For example, IceWarp solution’s USP’s are having a cloud setup within India with 24x7 local support. Apart from this, it offers flexibility in its offerings to cater to the Indian market, with different plans suiting the needs of the end user. In cloud, it provides public as well private cloud offering considering the compliance and security requirements at the customers’ end.

challenge? Pramod maintains, “Fortunately, we have been able to overcome all initial challenges which are associated with a growing brand. The only challenge that remains is to continue meeting the growing demands of the business and market size.” On the other hand, Punit says, “There is a main challenge of Undercutting. The partners who sell at loss to acquire the client do not survive in the long run and customers take undue advantage of this mentality amongst the Reseller partners.” So, the solution of under cutting cannot be regulated unless the vendors make a dictate. However, partner opportunity appears to be great. They need to reach out to the customers in some means and express their value proposition as Shivaami does it by engaging digital marketing

activities. IceWarp aligns closely with the partners as well as customers. The company engages a few quality partners to get the reach rather than creating competition amongst partners. Its marketing strategy is straight forward - With a top-down approach connect with the End target audience and work with partners closely to get the market share. The company works closely with our partners and jointly drive our marketing plans to be able to capture the market share. Punit says, “The partners have equal opportunity in the market. It totally depends on how dedicated are you towards your goal.” Asked about the expansion plans for next 12-24 months to trigger the market share, Punit maintains, “Our plan is to move to the smaller markets of the country, I believe that the smaller

cities are also accepting cloud computing and we need to help them to move along with the technology. Pramod concludes, “We are focused on providing the best of service to our customers. We intend to build strong partnerships who can reach out to the target customers and give us the visibility and reach as required. Apart from that, we are already upscaling our cloud infrastructure to be able to cater to the growing demand for IceWarp in the Indian market.” Finally… Business email and messaging market has started to take off in India and it has a huge opportunity in the market. It is to see how partners are embracing and investing in the solutions and taking it to the customers with dedication
