Key security initiatives The increased threat landscape that included advanced malware and cybercrime attacks, caused Lupin to seek a comprehensive solution that would plug all holes in the security landscape. It included equipping its servers, network and email, with adequate protection from vulnerabilities before an exploitation could occur.  The possibility of future migration to the cloud also required a future-proof solution that came equipped with cloud capabilities. They implemented a solution across two phases. The first phase involved shielding the datacenter from vulnerabilities through virtual patching. The second phase protected the endpoints, email and network by eliminating security gaps in the endpoints and by offering 360-degree visibility of the networks.
