by CXOtoday Staff    Dec 06, 2006

RSA, the Security Division of EMC, has inaugurated its first India development centre in Bangalore.

The new development centre will focus on delivering a portfolio of security solutions for development and delivery of a common security platform (CSP). Total headcount in India will exceed 3,200 in 2010.

The centre will take on full lifecycle development for RSA’s identity and access management product lines including engineering, support and maintenance functions. Frost & Sullivan adds that identity and access management is one of the fastest-growing areas in the security market. According to it, the market will reach USD 4.44 billion by the end of 2012 representing a compound annual growth rate of 15.4%.

Arthur Coviello, executive VP, EMC Corporation and president, RSA, the Security Division of EMC, says, “Despite millions of dollars in corporate investments in IT and information security, today most of the world’s corporate information is just not secure. The solution lies in an information-centric approach to security - that is, ensuring data, itself, is truly secure throughout its entire lifecycle.”

“India has emerged as one of the top three investment destinations for EMC and our development teams here will help us deliver the best-of-breed technology solutions to our customers globally,” adds Sanjay Mirchandani, senior VP, Emerging Markets and International Development, EMC Corporation.

Manoj Chugh, president, EMC India & SAARC, notes, “Information security is the number one priority for companies globally to meet new regulatory compliance guidelines and protect against data theft. This new development centre will help meet the evolving information infrastructure needs of EMC’s 350+ customer base in India and further strengthen our leadership position in the information infrastructure market.”

The centre will operate in collaboration with RSA’s other development centres located in Brisbane, Australia; Bedford, USA; Herzelia, Israel; and Chennai, India, at HCL Technologies, Inc. The centre will incorporate RSA Labs, a core team entrusted with R & D in the identity and access management space.
