COMPANY WHERE WON: Texas Dow Employee Credit Union

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: As TDECU digitally transforms, it is critical to have a common secure enterprise-wide digital platform to drive alignment between IT and the business. With TDECU’s implementation of Palo’s Integrated Firewall solution and adoption of the zero-trust model, the company can increase its security posture, improve operational efficiencies, reduce operational costs, and allow the business to more rapidly adopt new technologies, and scale up and out. The simplified approach is to avoid a rip and replace of existing network components and focus on having the protective technology in place to operationally implement our asset and data classification models by migrating our most sensitive assets, services, and data to our zero-trust network using Palo trust segmentation architecture.

INDUSTRY: Financial Services Industry
