McAfee mulls development centre in India

Mumbai: With a view to meet the growing demand for online security solutions, McAfee India, plans to set up one more development centre in India, a top company official said on Tuesday.

“We are looking at expanding and have short-listed a couple of cities including Hyderabad, Pune and Gurgaon for setting up a development centre in the current year," said McAfee India’s regional director-India and Saarc, Kartik Shahani.

McAfee’s India centre, based in Bangalore, is the largest development centre for McAfee around the world. The centre focuses on the research and development of security solutions and product innovation. It is also having development centres at Pune and Chandigarh, Shahani said.

California-based McAfee on Tuesday outlined details of its network security strategy, providing enterprises with unmatched network security protection and dramatically lower operational costs.

The strategy integrates McAfee’s complete network security suite, including network firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, web and email gateway security and network data loss prevention with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), McAfee’s centralised security management console, Shahani said.
