New Delhi, Dec. 2

In a bid to address security concerns, Nokia on Thursday announced installation of a server in India that will enable law enforcement agencies to intercept email, messenger services and other data sent through Nokia devices. The Nokia India Vice-President and MD, Mr D Shivakumar, met the Home Secretary, Mr G K Pillai, and handed over the letter, saying the company has conformed with all requirements suggested by the law enforcement agencies. The move comes even as BlackBerry maker is yet to respond to a similar request by the Home Ministry. “We have installed Nokia Messaging servers, which includes authentication and enterprise servers, in India on November 5. Nokia is fully committed to protecting its users' privacy and maintaining their trust, while at the same time fulfilling its public responsibility and legal obligations. As a responsible corporate citizen, we follow all local laws and regulations that are required by the government authorities.” — Our Bureau
