Key Security Initiatives

IFFCO TOKIO General Insurance Company designed a solution based on next gen firewalls (NGFW) with existing firewalls in the outer perimeter of DC, so that they can have two-tier security. 
One for outer perimeter, and other for inner perimeter, each managed by separate vendors, they converged all three into a single NGFW with redundancy, catering to three internet gateways from three ISPs for the DC. This ensured zero-day protection in addition to IPS and AV enabled on it.
