A CASE STUDY OF
WORKSTATION (PC) PROTECTION
CLIENT

TASK
Ensure the security of corporate information on employees' workstations.
We began to have an increasing interest in information security as the company grew. We have been working with the DIS.works team for a long time. They've helped us with developing infrastructure. We had a very positive relationship with them, so we decided to contact them about information security. As a result, we quickly received and immediately implemented an excellent solution from DIS.works based on multi-layered protection of all employees' workstations, including PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and others.

INPUT DATA
Playson decided not to wait to get hacked, and they were personally convinced that they would eventually have to provide protective measures on their workstations. All of DIS.works' developments and experience have been implemented from the very start of the company's planning for and construction of the internal perimeter of the IT environment.In a fast-paced digital world with high-speed Internet, there's no need to restrict employees to be in the office every day.To make using corporate technology more convenient, a protection option was chosen with the ability to remain protected outside the company's network perimeter.
SOLUTION
SELECTING A PROTECTION METHOD
To cover all the customer's needs and without limiting employees' freedom to use technology, we decided to focus all protection directly on the end devices. In the future, we'll only use this method since most companies have pursued very similar goals.
SELECTING SOFTWARE
After a long and difficult software selection process, the optimal set was chosen that covers all of the customer's needs. Symantec Endpoint Protection, Carbon Black Defense and IBM BIgFix helped us do that. 'Field testing' has shown that a slight decrease in PC performance is incomparable with the benefits obtained as a result of installing the software.
INSTALLING SOFTWARE
Very soon after, about 120 patches were installed on Windows 7, which was still in use at the time, using IBM BigFix. Every week, Symantec Endpoint Protection stopped about 1-2 threats to data security.
SUMMARY
Focusing protection on workstations allowed us to protect all of the company's devices both inside and outside the corporate network. Whether you're home, at a nearby cafe, or at a meeting in another office working on your PC, you're always protected by DIS.works.
