The biopharmaceutical giant’s partnership, for building specific technologies on a single platform.
The biopharmaceutical giant’s partnership with Value Point , enabled it for real time controlling and managing security threats on a single platform.
A biopharmaceutical giant with 8,500+ employees and revenues in excess of US$500 M has a state-of-the-art research and manufacturing infrastructure. It partnered with Value Point for building specific technologies on a single platform.
Challenges encountered by the Biopharma organisation
The organisation was earlier using traditional standalone IT solutions, where they were not delivering co-ordinated advanced threat protection, leading to other security issues. These legacy solutions existed in silos, with a traditional firewall and one email security solution on the premise of a mailing server. Although they had moved it to the cloud, it was not utilised optimally.
Secondly, with growing volume of workloads and exponential increase in data size, accommodating all of them within the limited backup scope was another challenge. Moreover, the organisation was still using traditional, unreliable tape solutions with data restoration issues.
Single platform solution from Value Point went a long way
Equipped with relevant expertise and skilled professionals, Value Point was consulted by the pharmaceutical organisation to provide a suitable solution. Value Point thereafter designed and deployed an integrated threat protection architecture. This covered Endpoint, Email and Network vectors, delivering visibility and protection across the enterprise. The entire solution managed the next generation firewall, email security and endpoint, all integrated on a single platform where they communicated with each other effortlessly. Information was shared in real time with the solution automatically responding to incidents, especially, Malware threats! With the new solution from Value Point , managing threats became simpler as they were viewed and controlled on a single platform.
It additionally defined information lifecycle management strategy to address backup, DR for backup and long term retention with the single management platform delivering 99.999% data integrity and availability. Value Point also supported the organisation in migrating from legacy tapes to disk-based backup.
Value Point also trained the employees at the biopharma organisation and made them comfortable on the usage of the new technology and platform, ensuring a smooth transition from the earlier one.
Benefits and business outcomes
With the new, single platform, controlling all security at one place, network traffic, users and cross estate visibility were made possible. The automated response to incidents reduced the security threats considerably.
The single cloud-based platform scaled down resources through consolidation, thereby increasing the return on investment. Zero-touch response saved enormous time and other associated challenges that occurred as products worked in alignment.
Key differentiators of Value Point
Integrating products on a single platform proved to be more effective, delivering more value than using individual products from different companies and brands where they did not communicate with each other. By being available 24X7X365 to support the Client through handholding and troubleshooting solution related issues, Value Point went the extra mile to deliver the best services.
