Nokia has today said that it would set up its server in India in November to adhere to the country’s security issues.
"We are launching the server on November 5 in compliance with all the rules and regulation in the country...It is for hosting mail and ensuring that the government has access (to the data)," Nokia India Managing Director D. Shivakumar was quoted as saying.
Nokia’s move would probably force BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) also to set up its server in the country.
Indian government has been serious with regard to security issues and asked RIM to provide solution over the deeply encrypted data. The data, which is said to be highly completed, could be misused by militants to carry attacks on India. The data is also difficult to monitor because of its complication. Now RIM is being expected to set up its server in India to operate in India.
Nokia comes with announcement of setting up its server amidst the RIM’s security issues remaining unsolved.
