KEY SECURITY INITIATIVES
While Vedanta's Oil & Gas vertical has been a technology savvy organization and on the forefront of technology usage, the team under cybersecurity leader Gomeet Pant, was able to identify a few areas of challenge. Some of them pertained to risk from internet while users were outside office or protection against advanced phishing attack on emails from zero day sources to zero day malicious content. The company also noted a rise in attack on application surface which was forcing us to reduce the application surface on internet and be limiting on providing users with anytime access. Vedanta was able to provide the same protection to users as they would have had in office by use of hybrid proxy. It implemented advanced email protection filters that helped not only provide standard security controls against spam, phishing and malware, but also against zero days, APT, and time of click protection. With the deployment of web application firewall, the company was able to host more applications over internet for easy access of users from anywhere.
