South Korean company Posco,the world’s 2nd largest steel manufacturing organization, sells in more than 60 countries. Its Indian subsidiary, Posco IPPC is located in Pune, Maharashtra. Some of its clientele include Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz, and other prominent OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).
Though Posco has been investing in secure network infrastructure for its employees, Posco IPPC saw some serious security challenges which could hamper their productivity. Some of these were- handling the console, low bandwidth, CPU utilization while scanning, system slowdown, and wastage of IT manpower and resources. Working on handling security for these issues was becoming a major task for the IT managers. Despite managing the anti-virus solution manually, there was no transparency for detailed insights into cybersecurity incidents across endpoints. So frequent malware and virus attacks, and unchecked accessing of harmful websites was a threat, which could not be contained despite regulating policies in place. With evolving complexities and volume of threats, Posco IPPC wanted to opt for a one-stop security solution that could help secure their systems even at low Internet bandwidth and overcome the issue of excessive CPU utilization. They wanted a solution that could restrict unauthorized devices in the company premises and generate detailed insights and reports based on multiple parameters and security incidents across endpoints. Besides, there were unknown devices being connected to the system and unregulated systems into the network across locations. The heavy and long software updates were slowing down systems.
What POSCO IPPC needed was an easily deployable solution, easy-to-apply IT policies that could be flexible for different user groups, at lesser resources cost that could ensure improved system performance and less network downtime. They needed a cloud-based solution to monitor endpoints outside local enterprise network. Posco IPPC needed a comprehensive endpoint security solution which could automate their network security infrastructure. Currently, Posco IPPC was managing the systems and network infrastructure manually, even though a security solution was available. They even had to generate reports related to security incidents across endpoints, manually.
What Posco IPPC needed was a consolidated and centralized security solution which could reduce the unnecessary utilization of their IT manpower and resources.
