Elitecore Technologies, an established brand for IT products and software solutions in network security, telecommunications and access gateway, has appointed Ignite Mudra to handle the creative mandate for a new Cyberoam product. Part of Elitecore, Cyberoam is a leading brand in the Unified Threat Management (UTM) space for businesses.
The product is scheduled to be launched in the home and SOHO (small office/home office) segment.
The account size is estimated to be around Rs 8-10 crore.
Addressing the win, Sudarshan Banerjee, head, Ignite Mudra conveyed in an official communiqué, "It is a new age product launch in an uncharted territory yet, where the rules of the game are not yet defined."
Abhilash Sonwane, senior vice-president, product management, Cyberoam, comments on the strategic direction that the winning agency put forth. "Given Ignite Mudra's impressive credentials, we were keen to see how the agency would approach a brand launch like ours. This is very crucial for us as we have largely operated in the B2B segment so far," he says.
Sonwane adds that the team demonstrated a very thorough understanding of the challenges and the approach to overcome them, which is precisely what helped it clinch this win.
Its other divisions include CRESTEL Convergent Billing Solution that meets the voice, data, video billing and customer care requirements of Tier-1 service providers, and 24-hour online billing and bandwidth management solution for hotels, hotspots and internet service providers.
