Globally, malware is expected to cost businesses a staggering USD 114 billion. Farsighted enterprises are therefore investing in robust endpoint security; and upgrading their protection and practices to keep up with the latest challenges.
Here is how Mindtree helped a global enterprise devoted to creating original content and effective digital advertising become more resilient in the face of malware threats.
The customer was dissatisﬁed by the performance of their endpoint security suite for malware protection. Their malware detection and cleaning rate was very low; and they had faced three zero-day incidents within a year that altered Web content, their primary business strength. Consequently the customer was looking for a proactive solution to enhance effectiveness at a lower operational cost.
Speciﬁc concerns included:
Mindtree team proposed a solution that did not necessitate a change in endpoint security software, thereby avoiding considerable expenditure. Out approach was based on research of malware threats, possible responses and best practices deployed by others in the industry.
The team's investigation of the customer's security revealed that they were not following best practices recommended by the industry experts. We then conducted a detailed analysis of all antivirus security policies and recommended changes to make the customer more resistant to malware attacks.
We also implemented two technology changes within the existing endpoint security suite. These changes were implemented across over 4,000 workstations and 1,000 servers within a span of one month.
