At L&T Financial Services the growing volume of business and digital transformation demanded an overhaul of legacy applications and network to defend against emerging security attacks and cyber threats. Mohd Imran led the revamping of security architecture with multiple layer defense, proactive security monitoring that includes perimeter security, intrusion prevention system, web application security and endpoint security, to ensure applications, computers, data, and network are defended against cyber-threats, attacks, unauthorized access or damage.
The solution included Next Gen Firewalls–perimeter and internal, Web Application Firewall (WAF), Security Incident and Event Monitoring (SIEM), and Privilege Identity management (PIM). This enabled the business to grow smooth and secure by ensuring availability of services, confidentiality and Integrity of data, and regulatory compliance.
