May 11 2022: Here are some more industry insights on the occasion of National Technology Day 2022:
Sanjai Gangadharan, Area Vice President - South ASEAN at A10: Altering the way people communicate and conduct business, thereby underpinning economic progress. In the last few years, we've seen the pandemic wipe out years of resistance by late adopters, social institutions, and businesses that hadn't previously bought into the "digital transformation" argument. Individuals and businesses have learned new skills, overcome technological limitations, and adopted new business models in order to remain relevant in the industry. Now that the majority of India's population is connected to the internet in some way, it is critical to monitor hackers lurking online and protect one's network and data from being compromised. According to A10 Networks International Communications Service Providers Insights 2021, 62% of Indian Enterprises have accelerated investments in security, as a result of the pandemic. Hence, A10 Networks’ top priority is to innovate and empower customers and partners with advanced IT and security strategies, as well as secure and accessible digital experiences, to address the challenges of this ever-changing digital world. I also believe that enterprises need to become increasingly cognizant of the fact that the actualization of tech advancements requires individual, organizational and ecosystem efforts combined – personal plus collective and integrated action is an imperative for scalable and sustainable impact.
