NITB’s Challenges

The Board was looking to create a new Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) for the deployment of E-Governance apps, ERP, and software application and development. The system needed to be equipped for web hosting and managed infrastructure-as-a-service.

The NITB also required an extensive web application firewall to protect government websites from any breach.
