Bolstering Network Security to prevent Lateral Movement
In the high-stakes world of aerospace defense, robust network security is paramount. This case study outlines how we helped an aerospace defense enterprise strengthen their network security, ensuring stringent access controls, and enhancing visibility to proactively safeguard against potential intrusions.
Need for Enhanced Access Controls and Network Visibility
Our client, a leading aerospace defense enterprise, required stringent access controls within their network, a protective layer that extended beyond the external firewall. Centralized management was crucial for them to ensure compliance with security policies and gain a comprehensive understanding of their network's susceptibility to intrusion. Without this, the client was at risk of potential security breaches and lacked the necessary visibility to anticipate and mitigate these threats.
Implementing the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform and Tailoring Application-Specific Security
To meet the client's requirements, we deployed the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform. This platform provides robust mitigation against lateral movement within the network, a common pathway for security breaches.
We collaborated with the client's application owners to design application-specific security measures, ensuring that each application was adequately protected based on its unique needs and vulnerabilities. Additionally, we integrated Illumio into the access-provisioning process, streamlining the implementation of control measures where vulnerabilities existed.
With Illumio, we delivered the necessary control to prevent lateral movement within the network, a significant step towards enhancing the client's overall network security. The increased visibility into network traffic allowed for enhanced monitoring capabilities for the client's security operations.
Our collaborative approach with the application owners resulted in more transparency into the security posture and better security tailored to each specific application. This comprehensive network security solution provided the client with the tools they needed to proactively defend their network against potential threats and ensure the highest level of security compliance.
Advanced Access Controls: Implementing the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform provided robust mitigation against lateral movement within the network, a critical feature for bolstering network security and preventing potential breaches.
Tailored Application-Specific Security: Working with application owners allowed us to design and implement security measures specifically tailored to each application's unique needs and vulnerabilities, further enhancing the client's network security.
Centralized Management and Enhanced Visibility: By integrating Illumio into the access-provisioning process, we ensured centralized management and improved visibility into the network. This allowed for enhanced monitoring capabilities and a better understanding of the network's susceptibility to intrusion.
Proactive Security Measures: Our approach provided the client with the necessary tools to proactively defend their network, ensuring the highest level of security compliance and safeguarding their operations from potential threats. This underscores the importance of proactive and comprehensive network security measures in the high-stakes aerospace defense industry.
