In this episode of the podcast, TechCentral speaks to Maxtec MD Praven Pillay about the growing importance of cybersecurity, especially in the cloud, and the solutions the company offers the market.
The conversation kicks off with a look at Maxtec’s history and the role it plays in the IT ecosystem in South Africa and the broader African region.
