In an interview with Mint, Rahim stressed on privacy policies and cyber security. “As more and more applications are going to be connected, each of those connections presents an opening for the bad actors to come in and compromise the network and thus user data. We believe it will require a fundamentally different architectural approach to do what is necessary to improve the overall security posture of the network.”

Discussing about software-defined networking, Rahim said, “One should understand that software has always played a very important role in networking. In the past, our software and hardware systems were very tightly integrated but now they are loosely coupled and we are already offering software separately. Also, networking-as-a-service will add more value to the domain.”

When talking about cloud infrastructure and IoT,  Rahim said, his company was most suited for “providing cloud infrastructure and solutions for data centers, wide area networks and the software that helps our customers in tapping into the cloud data centers with ease and agility
