Solution Requirement

Mphasis, a leading IT solutions provider specializing in cloud and cognitive services, has selected Fortinet Security Fabric solutions to deliver high performance, advanced threat protection to its network spanning 8 locations in India and servicing over 22,000 corporate users. Mphasis serves
customers around the world from industries such as government, financial services, telecom, logistics and technology, helping them transform their business through advanced cloud network and application services and through the use of big data to improve operations.

Mphasis was conducting a network infrastructure upgrade and wanted to consolidate primary firewall capabilities across all its data centres, including client and other indirect business networks. The company also wanted to take the opportunity to modernize and utilize advanced security features to enable business in a more secure and controlled way to drive user-based policies supporting new cloud-hosted application access.

To meet compliance, Mphasis needed to segment and secure every customer’s network with an enterprise firewall. This was cumbersome to do on Mphasis’ previoussecurity technology. Updating
firewall policies for customers with changing requirements, like the expansion of applications and workloads in the cloud, was also time-consuming on those appliances.

Solution deployment

Mphasis subsequently deployed a range of FortiGate enterprise firewalls to secure its data centre and the performance-sensitive application services of customers. These include Fortigate V DOMs, centralized management and reporting through FortiManager and FortiAnalyses respectively to secure its data centre and the performance-sensitive application services of customers.

• Reliable, low-latency performance: FortiGate helps reduce latency, while the significantly higher throughput delivers more available bandwidth for Mphasis’s customers even when they turn on multiple security technologies like firewall, intrusion prevention and application control.

• Customized, segmented security: FortiGate is able to create specific virtual domains (VDOMs) that apply individual customer user polices while logically segregating the data.

Solution benefits

Following the Fortinet deployment, Mphasis could add firewall services quickly and stop worrying that it could not expand resources fast enough Fortinet‘s.
