Networking giant Cisco has partnered with Value Point Systems, a digital transformation catalyst, to launch a state-of-the-art cybersecurity experience centre (CSEC) in Bengaluru.

The centre aims to improve business operations, the companies said in a joint statement.

It was inaugurated by Sameer Garde, president of Cisco India and SAARC. Garde displayed Cisco solutions and allied managed services that help Value Point customers build and manage cybersecurity platforms tailored to their business requirements.

"As security threats become more complex and persistent, they pose a serious, ongoing challenge. Value Point's security experience centre showcases how customers can prepare themselves to combat new-age cyber threats," said Garde.

The centre will display use cases on network visibility and security, optimal security over a digital network and secured protection across entities in the enterprise, banking and retail and e-commerce verticals.

“To ensure that our customers efficiently address the challenges of today’s and future requirement of digitization, we are leveraging Cisco’s expertise for security solutions and have showcased them at the new CSEC,” said R S Shanbhag, chairman and chief executive officer, Value Point Systems.

Value Point Systems claims to accelerate customers’ digital transformation journey by delivering digital infrastructure technologies, solutions and services.

Vishak Raman, director of security business at Cisco India and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) said that its cybersecurity business is $3.4 billion globally.

Earlier this month, a study conducted by Cisco had found enterprises in India faced longer downtimes and higher costs from cyber breaches compared to their Asia-Pacific and global peers.
