by November 8, 2018 0 comments

Solution Requirement

As one of India’s prominent asset management and financial product advisors, LIC Mutual Fund handles large amounts of classified financial data. Any breach of IT security can be a disaster for the company and its customers. This made it extremely important to devise a protection strategy
that addressed the security challenges and compliance requirements of a modern data centre.

With the financial sector cybercrimes increasing, LIC Mutual Fund wanted to take preventive measures and secure its endpoints, network, and data centres. Taking into consideration the increase in targeted attacks and cyber threats in the financial sector, it was important to implement a “Connected Threat Defense and Response Strategy” that would be efficient enough to detect and block threats across all channels. The company searched for an enterprise-class security solution that would integrate seamlessly with its existing IT infrastructure and scale to meet current and future protection needs.

Solution Deployment

LIC Mutual Fund needed an IT security partner that stayed ahead of the latest threats and could
integrate quickly with its IT ecosystem to deliver cutting-edge protection and maintain high system
performance. The choice was easy once they discovered that Trend Micro could provide a complete suite of solutions that provide a multi-layered defence approach to secure endpoints, data centres, and the network.

Trend Micro assured the IT team of LIC Mutual Fund that its servers and endpoints could be defended against zero-day threats, breaches, and business disruptions by adopting a virtual patching mechanism. Simultaneously, Trend Micro offered a strong network defence strategy that provided 360-degree visibility and included countermeasures to supplement traditional security measures.

Solution Benefits

Partnering with Trend Micro significantly improved the security profile of the LIC Mutual Fund. The solutions provided visibility into potential security threats and increased protection against zero-day vulnerabilities. Trend Micro solutions also improved operational efficiency by reducing unscheduled patching events, customer code fixes and improved productivity due to reduced unscheduled downtime.

Deployed as a single, multifunction agent across all environments in the data centres, Trend Micro solutions addressed resource contention issues and helped to simplify security operations. LIC Mutual Fund also benefits from a centralized management solution that provides a single, integrated interface to manage, monitor, and report across multiple layers of security.
