Cyberoam Launches CR10wiNG Wireless Security Appliances

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
Cyberoam has launched CR10wiNG, the “fastest and most affordable UTM appliance” with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities for the SOHO/ROBO markets. The CR10wiNG wireless appliance supports 802.11 n/b/g standards and up to eight virtual access points. It delivers UTM security features over WLAN to offer enterprise-level security and meet the requirement of mobility in this segment. Cyberoam CR10wiNG offers high performance with firewall throughput of 400Mbps and UTM throughput of 60Mbps.
The wireless networks in organizations face huge risk of information theft due to their inability to trace users, especially guest users, within the network. Additionally, lack of IT security staff and budgetary constraints make it difficult for the SOHO/ROBO segment to find security solutions that are adequate, cost-effective and easy to manage. Also, organizations with distributed networks, remote and branch offices, especially in sectors like retail stores, logistics and transportation, and Utility distribution centers, demand mobility within the network and need network security, secure remote access, and secure Wi-Fi for walk-in customers.
CR10wiNG, based on Cyberoam’s patented Layer 8 technology, allows administrators to apply User identity-based security policies to gain visibility over user activity and also manage Guest Internet access in the network. CR10wiNG supports multiple virtual access points that create independent, segregated networks in the same physical area for separate teams like sales, marketing, guest users, and more. This offers secure authentication and prevents rogue clients from connecting to networks where they don’t belong.
CR10wiNG is designed for small and branch offices to offer secure Wi-Fi at par with wired security.  It enables a leaner Wi-Fi security infrastructure to organizations by replacing both Wi-Fi router and firewall with a single appliance. For remote offices with limited connectivity options, CR10wiNG also offers 3G.
Cyberoam CR10wiNG is built on the same CyberoamOS that powers other high-end NG series UTM appliances. It is centrally manageable via Cyberoam Central Console (CCC) and Cyberoam’s on-Cloud Management Service and is compatible with iView – Cyberoam’s Open Source logging and reporting solution.

HCL Launches HCL TalentCare

Posted by News Room On Monday, May 18, 2015 0 comments
HCL Corporation announced a significant entry into skill and talent development space with the launch of HCL TalentCare, an integrated end to end talent solutions company incorporated under HCL Corporation. HCL TalentCare aims to be a global talent-solutions company addressing a wide spectrum of entry-level employability needs in India and thereby creating a ready talent pool of professionals for enterprises in IT, BFSI and Healthcare sectors.
India’s young population is its greatest asset. Within that, there are close to 7 million graduates including 1.5 million engineers who are academically qualified to join the workforce every year. HCL TalentCare plans to hone the aptitude of these talented youngsters with additional skills that prepare and align them for effective employment. The bridging of the skills gap by initiatives such as these will help India’s growing economy tremendously and also complement and contribute to the Government’s mission to skill and up-skill about 500 million people by 2022.
Addressing the conference, Shiv Nadar, Founder and Chairman, HCL, said, “Today, more than half of India’s population is under the age of 25, with 65 percent of the population under 35. About 12 million individuals are expected to join the workforce every year. While India’s young population is its greatest asset, many young Indians are not equipped with the skills required for effective employment. I believe that this is the right moment to step in to address this skill gap challenge facing the nation today. This will help us realise our demographic dividend and create Talent Made in India.”
Roshni Nadar, CEO and Executive Director, HCL, said, “Our strategic direction is to focus on spaces that would be the catalysts for economic growth – Technology, Healthcare and People. After spending four decades in technology, we diversified into healthcare last year. We now complete this journey with the launch of HCL TalentCare.”
She further added, “A people-intensive organisation with over 100,000 people, HCL has nurtured and developed a strong pool of talent which is one its ke
y differentiators. HCL professionals today are the backbone of leading global enterprises across industries. Our strong expertise in training and skilling talent for forty years makes us suitably poised to address the talent needs across industries. HCL TalentCare is envisaged as a hub for developing trained and skilled workforce for people intensive industries like IT, BFSI and Healthcare. With HCL TalentCare, we take a step forward in raising the quality-quotient of talent in this country and creating the HCL of the future.”
Premkumar S, Chief Mentor, HCL TalentCare said, “There is a ‘talent-divide’ that has been created as more than 75% graduates today are not job-ready. India Inc. is witnessing high attrition rates of 20% and above because of expectation mismatch at the 0-3 year experience band that is hurting enterprises very badly. Corporate India is keen to hire “role ready” talent to meet its growing demand for skilled professionals.” He also added, “HCL TalentCare’s key objective is to offer skill development and staffing solutions that will provide a career launch pad for students on one side and a ready pool of employable talent for enterprises. A structured approach like this will lead to on-demand staffing of trained and certified resources which is an imperative for competitiveness across industries.”
