COMPANY WHERE WON: Cox Automotive

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Project name: CASA (Cox Automotive Secure Access)

Description:With the Covid Pandemic facing us so abruptly, the entire Cox Automotive workforce was mandated to work from home. With that in mind remote access was on the top of the priority list to keep the business moving during those challenging times. VPN connectivity was available but all the protections of secure office environment (ddos/dlp/URL filtering/advanced threat protection) were missing. While all this new risk was being assessed and reviewed, the Cybersecurity team identified a solution that has been buzzing in the industry, and what better time to deploy and execute it. The solution was SASE (Secure Access Service Edge).
