Key Security Initiatives  Batlivala and Karani Securities implemented synchronized security in its environment. The company believes that point products can stop individual elements of an attack; but they don’t work together to protect data, devices, and network from sophisticated, coordinated cyber-attacks. At the same time, the organization needed to over stretch its efforts to respond fast enough to these threats.  Synchronized Security helped the organization to have the best defenses to coordinated attacks as they protect against all possible challenges which keep changing rapidly.  As a part of the project, the following security features were implemented by Batlivala and Karani Securities team led by Sanjay Gurav:  •    Network Protections (intrusion prevention, advanced VPN protection) •    Web Protection (Powerful user & group policies; Web threat, Application controls & QoS policy) •    Email Protections (Real-time anti-spam, self-serve quarantine, DLP) •    Wireless Protection (centralized WiFi management and security policies implementation through enterprise class high speed wireless AP)
