NetFoundry further strengthens its footprint in APAC and has officially set up a local presence in Australia. Though NetFoundry has been introduced to the Australia market a few years back via local and global partners, it is now proud to have a local Country Director – Kapil Barman.
“We already have a good start with our channel partner based here and we expect to further grow and support them. Our main focus now is to build up our customer base within large enterprises and government entities. Leveraging our existing relationship with Microsoft, AWS, Alibaba and strategic alliances, with our solution, we seek to address customers pain points when it comes to network and connectivity.” Kapil Barman, Country Director, NetFoundry ANZ
Relocating back to Australia from Singapore, Kapil brings with him 12 years of experience in the Telecom industry, working with customers and partners from multiple geographies across APAC. In his previous role as the APAC pre-sales lead for NetFoundry APAC, Kapil led multiple global projects. He takes pride and is committed to providing customers with first-class connectivity solutions enabling them to accelerate their digital business.
The adoption of cloud-strategy is nothing new in Australia and has been gaining significant momentum for the past few years, accelerated further by the COVID-19 crisis. More and more services are being delivered from the cloud – whether it’s storing data, team collaboration and task automation, supply chain optimization, or controlling IoT devices – everything is moving to the cloud. The scene hasn’t just changed the way applications connect to systems but has also changed the way we build and even think about building applications.
Many Australian enterprises are looking for digital ways to be more competitive, improve supply chains, enable remote working and ensure business continuity. With everything moving to the cloud, traditional security models, which provide perimeter-based protection for networks, have seemingly become unfit for the new normal landscape. The concern for a security framework that enables secure and fast cloud connectivity for staff, partners, suppliers and customers is justified. Modern Australian business is serious about zero trust methodology to improve their capacity to prevent, detect and respond to security breaches.
Commenting on the Oceania market, Dipesh Ranjan, MD and VP of NetFoundry said, “The maturity of zero trust adoption in Australia and New Zealand shows these companies recognize this shift to the ‘never trust; always verify’ model. In an environment where mobile computing and remote working are ubiquitous, businesses should improve visibility of their network posture.”
NetFoundry addresses these concerns with an innovative approach via a cloud-native Secure Assess Service Edge (SASE) Platform. Delivering Network-as-a-Service (NaaS), the NetFoundry platform provides IT with the controls to securely connect people and devices to the services they need to access and to drive agility, innovation, and flexibility for the modern business. SASE architecture identifies users and devices, applies policy-based security, and delivers secure access to the appropriate application or data. Implemented smartly, it can provide cost-effective risk reduction, allowing organizations to apply for secure access no matter where their users, applications or devices are located.
Today serving as a unique proposition in the market, NetFoundry not just leads the way for the Zero Trust based deployments but also is able to leverage conditioned global nearing capacity to create a private SDN experience.
