Sify Limited, a leader in consumer Internet and enterprise services in India with global delivery capabilities, has changed its name to Sify Technologies Limited after the approval from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. This is in line with the company’s strategy to position itself as a technology company with deep expertise in IT infrastructure management.
Raju Vegesna, Board Chairman, MD and CEO, Sify Technologies Ltd, said, “Sify is a leader in Internet and network services, and has continuously set the standard for these services in India. We are also rapidly growing our remote infrastructure management services overseas, where we are recognised as a specialist based on our expertise and experience. Our leadership stems from our core competence with Internet Protocol and the technologies with which we manage, monitor and deliver services over IP network infrastructure and the Internet. As we stand poised for future growth with new products and services, we felt that our name should reflect the core competence, which differentiates us in terms of our capability. We are confident that our employees, investors, customers and stakeholders will welcome this change, and see this as a natural extension of our commitment to offer best-in-class services globally.”
Sify is among the largest Internet, network and e-commerce services companies in India, offering end-to-end solutions with a comprehensive range of products for both consumers and enterprises, delivered over a common Internet backbone infrastructure that currently reaches 221 cities and towns in India. The company recently integrated its managed enterprise services offering into an integrated enterprise business division, which is an industry leader in services such as IP virtual private networks (VPNs).
Sify has also integrated its popular consumer portal www.sify.com, i-Way cyber café chain and broadband-to-home services into a consumer business division to develop the consumer Internet market in India by leveraging the synergy between these services. The company also has a growing base of customers across the US, Europe and the Middle East for its remote infrastructure management and e-learning services.
