RSA Security to open development centre in Bangalore
Bangalore, Apr 5 (UNI) RSA Security Inc, a global expert in protecting online identities and digital assets, will launch its first development centre in India, here in September with an initial investment of over 2.4 million US Dollars.
Addressing newspersons here today, company Vice-President (Engineering, Identity and Access Management) Stan Swiniarski said the company would house over 100 employees by the year-end for software development, quality assurance and technical documentation.
The company proposed to increase the headcount to 200 by the end of 2007 and 400 by 2008.
He said the proposed centre would operate in tandem with RSA Security's other development centres in Brisbane (Australia), Bedford (USA) and Herzelia (Israel). The fourth development centre was being set up here recognising India's emerging global dominance in the IT sector and its robust infrastructure, making it one of the world's fastest growing economies. The company had also taken cognisance of the vast talent pool available in the city and proximity to its partners like Microsoft, which had a strong presence here.
Outlining the plans for the Bangalore development centre, Mr Swiniarski said it would play a key role in building mission-critical consumer solutions for authentication and extending the company's fraud protection offerings. It would function as an independent software development centre, sharing tools and best practices with the company's other facilities, while managing the total life cycle of its own key product portfolios.
He said RSA Security also proposed to sponsor research activities in universities in Bangalore and elsewhere to promote development of best-of-breed security products.
