Western Digital Corporation participated Secutech India 2017 as a Gold partner to witness 690+ brands and more than 28,000 visitors which included attendees from different sectors and across the globe. This year the focus of the event was in areas such as Integrated Building Management Systems (IBMS), Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Internet of things, Secutech India Connect & safety pavilions.
Western Digital Corporation has seen growth in the security sector in India and that has been one of the key reasons behind the organization’s decision to consider India as a standalone core region. The implementation of the Smart Cities project by the Government of India, the demand for better quality video surveillance systems and the need to adapt to the emerging technologies acted as one of the main triggers for WDC to participate in this event this year.
Western Digital is an industry-leading developer and manufacturer of storage solutions that enable people to create, manage, experience and preserve digital content. It is a long-time innovator in the storage industry. The marketing network of the company is spread throughout India and several overseas countries with its headquarters in the USA.
At the Western Digital booth during the three-day event, the visitors had an opportunity to explore and experience various WDC products, including the recently launched WD Purple 10TB HDD which is the latest addition of the brand in their hard drive line of products for surveillance applications.
During this exhibition Western Digital Corporation also shared the ‘Role of Surveillance in Securing Cities’ report which was worked in collaboration with the Smart Cities Council of India. This report is a detailed analysis of the role of surveillance in securing cities, the need for Smart City projects to be implemented, opportunities that organizations, individuals and authorities would gain through these projects and challenges the Smart Cities project would have to go through in order to be implemented successfully.
