KEY SECURITY INITIATIVES
L&T Financial Services introduced the BYOD policy but was aware of the security risks associated with it. Since the device is often used for personal uses too, devices could well be at risk from malware, viruses and cybersecurity risks like insecure usage, data leakage and device compromise To tackle the situation, the security team led by Imran deployed secure application access solution based on zero trust model and recursive DNS for endpoint security. Post implementation, they gained many benefits which includes secured endpoints from targeted threat, monitoring of DNS activity to identify and block threats such as malware and secure applications access.
