Happy Zohoversary to Zoho Buzz

We released our first edition on December 5th, 2019, marking 50 million users. Then ZohoDay 2020 set the tone for the year, establishing three themes that we've executed on: privacy, technology, and remote work.

We said no to "adjunct surveillance." We adapted to changing work conditions by releasing brand-new apps and suites—Zoho Remotely and Zoho Workplace. We've even begun opening rural offices worldwide, to draw in local talent and support their surrounding communities.
