New Delhi [India], Jan.11 (ANI): Sophos has empanelled key products of its next-generation Sophos XG Firewall to National Informatics Centre Services Incorporated (NICSI), a Government of India enterprise under the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. The products include Hardware appliances (XG Firewall 85 to XG 750), Enterprise Guard and Full Guard Subscription (1 to 5 years for XG Firewall series), Sophos Firewall Manager (SFM 200,300, & 400 with 1 to 3 years Subscription) and LAN/WAN Modules and Transceivers. The company has been working closely with NICSI to better address the emerging cyber security challenges and network performance problems that are faced by various government agencies and infrastructure. "We have empanelled our products and stabilised the service and rate that can be leveraged by government organisations. The advantage of buying through NICSI is that government organisations need not float tenders or invite bids. They can directly check for products and vendors that meet their requirements and ask for a demo or deployment," said Sunil Sharma, vice president, sales at Sophos. "It is an opportunity to work in close association with NICSI to evaluate network security needs from the ground up, as mandatory for many PSUs, government agencies and offices," he further added.
