Anil Bhasin, regional vice president, India and SAARC at Palo Alto Networks added, “The cybersecurity challenges that a large global technology company such as KPIT, with multiple clients and thousands of employees spread across the world, face on a day to day basis is immense. This has become even more critical with the “Smart Enterprise” future that it has envisaged for itself.”
