CSO100 Award 2019
Syed Abdul Raheem is the head of cyber security for all of Amara Raja group.
KEY SECURITY INITIATIVES
Amara Raja Group had a multitude of legacy proxies for each of 50 plus locations without any failover capability or synchronization among them and business needed a uniform universal proxy solution that covers employees wherever they travel across the globe. The organization needed aggregation of events from various security controls and actionable threat intelligence to fine-tune their security controls without adding additional operational overhead and huge expenditures. The company implemented a purely cloud-based proxy solution. This has solved not only operational issues like maintenance and synchronization among dozens of branches but provided single seamless protection to users on all trusted and non-trusted networks. It also allowed the organization to react to users' needs in less than two seconds at any part of the world.
