Digital Strategy:

In the modern day environment of cloud and end point devices, the concept of perimeter network has become quite obsolete. In this regard KSK Energy Ventures came with a new security strategy to secure and stabilize the the company’s IT Network Infrastructure.

The infrastructure in Gateway security was relooked and strengthened to prevent the intrusion attempt to penetrate network access to hack sites and information. The internal authentication protection are considered to alternatively protect the network, and Server to further stabilize the overall IT infrastructure.

Guest devices were isolated to a separate network to prevent any intrusion and probable hit with spam/virus or hack scripts. White Listing of all entities was done through Software Restriction Policies that helps immensely to protect and secure the network and information.  
Regular Monitoring and checking for desired configuration states was done. The IT / Security team were instructed to report any deviations from best practices of protecting the network and systems security using standard SCCM tools.
