CSO100 Award 2018

Rajesh Shetty is the senior chief manager, technology at Aditya Birla Sun Life Insurance. He has a total experience of over two decades. His expertise is in governance and management of COEs providing spectrum of services ranging from architecture and standards, best practices, and operational support. Key security initiative Aditya Birla Sun Life Insurance was facing a challenge in terms of advanced protection for its servers and end points. For this, it set up a deep security virtual patching for servers and an end point security solution (ENS), active response and threat intelligence. This helped them gain an advanced protection against threats due to the security patches implemented on operating systems, databases, middleware and application. The ENS applies a state-of-the-art machine learning technique to identify malicious code based on both what it looks like and what it might do (pre-execution analysis) and what it does (dynamic behavioral analysis)—all without signatures. This has led to performance optimization. The web control prevents users from accessing malicious web sites.
