Currently designated as Assistant General Manager & IT Infra (Network & Systems) with Cyient (Formerly known as InfoTech Enterprises Ltd., Hyderabad) Managing Data Leak Prevention and Asset Management. Insightful professional in managing entire IT Infrastructure Lifecycle and developing network/ application architecture while planning & implementing information security in support of business objectives.  Key Security Initiative Cyient needed a strong technology to protect against intellectual property theft, confidential information leakage and to have secure work environment with individual’s PII protection from all types of malware. The solution also had to bring visibility and control on all computing devices and user activities and help responding timely and proactively towards attacks/ potential information leaks.  Cyient identified 66 features/requirements to address the business problem and narrowed down to four identified DLP products from different publishers. The proof of concept was done on all these four products for about three months. The adopted DLP solution helped the organization control sensitive IP data leakage by involving the respective functions for configuring DLP policies and got the visibility of information going out of Cyient Network. The organization works closely with security incident response team (SIRT) and HR to monitor and control individuals who try to breach the DLP policies and ensured Cyient’s and clients’ data are protected.
