Finnish firm F-Secure said it is in discussions with state governments, including Delhi, on the role that it can play in offering secured Wi-Fi access across hotspots located in various cities.

"Governments are looking at offering free Wi-Fi across cities like Delhi and Chandigarh. As more cities adopt Wi-Fi, government has to be careful as public Wi-Fi can be misused by cybercriminals," F-Secure country manager India and Saarc Amit Nath said.

He added that the company is in discussions to figure out how its solutions can be implemented at these Wi-Fi hotspots to protect end-consumers with a sustainable revenue model built around it, he added.

Nath, however, declined to give further details on the talks.

The security software market in the country is estimated to be worth about $200 million, growing at about 20-22 percent annually, Nath said.
