Challenges

Data Protection

Data Protection

As the liability associated with Data Security has increased over the years, so too has the cost of compliance.  Regulations that focus on protection of customer data "in use", "at rest" and "in motion" have changed the focus of security controls from perimeter-centric to data-centric security.  Zimbani has years of experience delivering strategic solutions that meet these compliance objectives in a pragmatic and cost effective fashion.

Security Information & Event Management

Security Information & Event Management

Finding the right balance between capturing all security related events on production networks and protecting the operational staff from blowouts in operational costs is the key to success in this space.  Vendors will often overlook the costs associated with onboarding, storage and incident management.   SIEM projects are among the most often to not meet inflated expectations set by vendors.  Zimbani has developed approaches and patterns for deploying cost effective SIEM based on appetite across heterogeneous networks.
