Lenovo India has bagged an order from the Tamil Nadu government for providing over 1.5 million laptops to students in the state, according to a company official.
“We have won a large order from the Tamil Nadu government for supplying over 1.56 million laptops for free distribution to students in the state. This entire order is expected to be completed over the next few months,” Lenovo India Director (Commercial Named Account Business) Stephen Sequeira told PTI.
He, however, declined to comment on the financial details of the deal. Sequeira said state-owned ELCOT – the nodal agency for procuring electronic hardware and software for the state government and its schemes – finalised the tender where Lenovo outbid the other brands.
Talking about the other initiatives, Sequeira said, the company has launched the second variant of its ThinkShield cyber security solutions. ThinkShield is Lenovo’s portfolio of secure ‘Think’ devices, software, processes, and services.
“ThinkShield goes beyond simple endpoint security, with solutions that create huge efficiencies, streamline IT administration, improve the end-user experience, and provide a platform for businesses to compete safely,” Sequeira explained.
The latest version gives IT admins more visibility into endpoints, offer self-healing capabilities and one-click fixes, provide easier and more secure authentication, and use intelligence to assess risk, he added.
