He further explained, “Most professionals like me are adept in software, but not in the hardware that has to operate perfectly under the control of the software – for getting the most desired creative output. This seminar opened my eyes about hardware products like GIGABYTE and how they are critical for our work. This newly gained knowledge and experience will go a long way in not only knowing my work tools better but also, getting the best out of them, and offering even better solutions to our customers.”

Canon India’s efforts to build sustainable communities achieve another milestone

Posted by News Room On Friday, September 2, 2016 0 comments
Dedicated to make a discernible impact on the communities it operates in, the world leader in imaging continues its social endeavours.  Commenced in 2012, Canon India’s flagship CSR initiative, ‘Adopt a Village’, today includes four adopted villages, leading to the initiatives pan India outreach. Adopted last year 40 kms from Kolkata, Canon’s fourth village, ‘Sol Gohalia’ yesterday marked its first anniversary.
This is yet another milestone in Canon India’s flagship programme ‘Adopt a Village’, which focuses on holistic development of village dwellers. Sol Gohalia, home to nearly 4500 people, who earn their livelihood from daily labour, irrigation and small businesses, has received continued improvisation in four key areas, including eye care, education, environment, leading to overall empowerment. Sol Gohalia was joined to the Canon family with a mission to redefine the lives of people in and around the village by providing them with facilities for a well-developed and sustainable living. Since then, the village has witnessed several notable developments. To mention a few, capacity building in the school has led to students returning to the village school to enjoy better classroom infrastructure, clean drinking water supply, a resource centre with a non-formal education teacher to impart computer literacy, art and craft skills and encouraging sports among the students of all grades along with a vision centre for better eye care services.
Speaking about Canon’s efforts in this direction, Kazutada Kobayashi, President & CEO, Canon India, said, “On our association with Sol Gohalia turning a successful one year, I can say that Canon has ignited the first candle of hope in this village. I am pleased to notice the visible progress the village has undergone, yet the ultimate impact will be witnessed when these villagers and specially students are able to lead healthy and informed lives ahead. Community development is essential to us at Canon India, it is embedded in our DNA, and we collectively envision a holistic development of the societies we operate in.”
“Four of our adopted villages are our extended families and I am delighted to share that all of them are undergoing positive transformations. Smiling faces, healthy and happy lives are the awards for us at Canon India. Our employees are equally passionate about engaging with the villagers to create awareness and educate them about the basics of living a holistic life. We aspire to continue our focussed energies on more such social development arenas to achieve an all-inclusive progress for the community,” further added, Kobayashi.
The special day was marked with celebration, enthusiasm and vigour amongst one and all. More than 60 Canon India employees marked their presence in the village to celebrate the special day with their Sol Gohalia family. School children brimming with vigour gave a warm welcome to the employees with regional dance and singing performances. A painting competition was organised, where the students participated and won accolades and trophies for their performance. An art and craft exhibition in which students showcased various art & craft work, learnt by them in the resource centre, further imbibed the importance of extracurricular activities, ensuring all-inclusive progress of young minds. All the school children were handed over a pair of new school bags, as a small token of encouragement and appreciation. With a focus on building a green haven for Sol Gohalia dwellers, another watering the trees drive was organised on the special day.

Array Networks Introduces AWF 6.1 for Indian Customers

Posted by News Room On Thursday, September 1, 2016 0 comments

Array Networks Incannounces the launch of AWF Series Web application firewall AWF6.1 in India. The upgraded version of AWF can synchronize IP reputation data from Array’s online security intelligence center and the third-party intelligence service providers. This protects against inadvertent access to sites that are known hosts of malware such as Windows exploits, Web attacks, Botnets, Scanners, Denial of Service, Reputation, Phishing and Proxy.Array AWF 6.1 adds a number of other new features including port linkage, which maintains consistent status when working behind firewalls, along with mirroring blocking, which allows the AWF to detect an attack on one port, and block the attack with another. This mode has the shortest latency and highest performance.To maximize the security portfolio of the AWF, flow protection mode provides flow-based detection at a higher speed than transparent or reverse proxy mode, resulting in higher performance. Flow protection mode is especially useful for deployments at the boundary of large networks and data centers. For continuous attacks such as DoS, Web attacks, etc., AWF can dynamically generate a blacklist rule for the attack source IP and block the attack.
Array’s AWF Series Web application firewalls extend beyond traditional firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDSs) to provide comprehensive protection for business-critical Web applications. The AWF Series not only detects the complex Web application attacks of today but also blocks the attack traffic in real time without affecting the normal flow of business data traffic. In addition, the AWF Series provides extremely fine-grained attack detection and analysis capabilities, while protecting against the most common Web application threats including SQL injection attacks, Web page tampering, Website malicious code, and disclosure of sensitive information.
