Chennai, India, December 12, 2017 – Sify Technologies Limited (NASDAQ: SIFY), the largest ICT service provider, systems integrator, and all-in-one network solutions company on the Indian subcontinent, with global delivery capabilities, today announced that it has been elevated to Local Gold Partner status in the Akamai NetAlliance Partner Program. Akamai Technologies, Inc. is the world’s largest and most trusted Cloud delivery platform.
The Akamai NetAlliance Program was set up for companies to incorporate and combine Akamai’s technologies and services with their own products and services in order to create more robust and innovative solutions for their customers.

As a Gold Partner, Sify is now part of the league of Akamai partners who have advanced technical expertise across Solutions and Operations as well as having significant experience across different business verticals, including Government.
Sify has been a Silver NetAlliance Partner since 2014. The partnership is designed to help Enterprises, especially those in banking, finance, IT-enabled services, and manufacturing verticals to enhance Cloud adoption for business and functional applications.
“It is an honour for all of us at Sify Technologies to have been accorded the Gold local partner status by Akamai. As we extend and further strengthen our partnership, we believe that together, we will continue to enrich our customers’ experience by delivering consistent and high-quality content over the Cloud” said Kamal Nath, CEO, Sify Technologies.
Danny Mesrop, Senior Director, Channels & Alliances, APJ, Akamai Technologies, said, “I believe that India is on the cusp of a digital revolution that straddles users, Enterprises, and government-run organizations. In our endeavours to make the internet fast, reliable and secure for everyone, we work with partners like Sify to help deliver the best possible digital experience.
