Speaking on the Joint Venture, Thibault Montjean, the CEO of ORIOL CYBER GROUP said, “This gives us a great opportunity to further increase our presence in the India, APAC and MEA regions. As this is our first foray into this region, we were looking for a partner that could work closely with us with full transparency and offer us a high level of account management, commitment, and expertise in this category. We saw these qualities in LD Sharma and were impressed by his hands-on approach when it came to launching our Cybersecurity products and services in these regions.”

LD Sharma commented, “Cybersecurity is one of the biggest issues emerging these days, which we all need to take a lot more seriously. India is a country of almost 1.5Bn people, and with increased usage of social media, there are chances of company and personal data becoming more vulnerable. Given this scenario, having a strong Cybersecurity framework is going to be of great service to the nation and its people.”

With this 50:50 joint venture, they will improve the overall services.

ORIOL CYBER GROUP's India division aims to offer its entire range of existing products and services to its diverse clientele. In light of India's position as the second most populous country, the company will also introduce customized services tailored specifically for the nation.
