cisco launches meraki india cloud region for data localisation

A restructuring plan will affect roughly 5% of Cisco’s workforce, the company said on Wednesday. It had almost 85,000 employees as of last year, suggesting that the move will involve approximately 4,000 jobs. The restructuring will cost about $500 million, Cisco said.

Global technology leader Cisco, on Thursday, announced the launch of Cisco Meraki India Region. This new cloud region, hosted by a service provider approved by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, aims to support businesses in India with their cloud-first strategies while ensuring local data storage and privacy.

According to Cisco, Meraki is trusted by over 810,000 customers globally and is known for its cloud-managed IT platform that simplifies operations and enhances secure networking. It provides a range of services, including Networking (Wired, Wireless, SD-WAN), secure networking, and IoT (Sensors), offering centralised visibility and control of networks and reducing operational costs.

“Launching the Meraki India Region is a critical step to ensuring customers can securely connect and scale their business with the simplicity they expect from Meraki,” said Lawrence Huang, SVP/GM – Cisco Networking – Meraki & Wireless. “The Meraki India Region helps our customers meet their local data storage needs with advanced security features such as penetration testing and daily vulnerability scans.”

This launch comes as demand for data localisation and privacy is growing. According to the Cisco 2024 Data Privacy Benchmark Study, 97% of Indian organisations feel safer storing data domestically, and 94% trust global providers more for data protection. The Meraki India Region offers solutions for sectors like government, education, finance, healthcare, and professional services, meeting their cloud transformation needs.

Daisy Chittilapilly, President, Cisco India & SAARC, said, “As businesses embrace a cloud-first environment, they seek a comprehensive networking platform that offers agility, flexibility, and secure access to drive operational efficiencies. With the launch of the Meraki India Region, we aim to provide that.”

With Meraki, Cisco will provide resilient and secure cloud infrastructure, fostering innovation and simplifying network operations, ultimately creating scalable and manageable networks for a connected India.
