Key Security Initiatives in 2018 FY
At Zensar Technologies, an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) detection solution was implemented across all India locations. This has helped the company to protect all the end points including servers from zero-day attacks and also served as an effective security platform by sharing threat intelligence with other security platforms. The number of management consoles were reduced by making unique management consoles for all end point technologies. The solution covered app control, threat prevention, dynamic application containment, machine learning, sandboxing and zero-day malware detection. Additionally, bringing together event, threats and risk data with the help of SIEM provided real time visibility into all security activities improving compliance management that has helped to speed up the response time.
