Security Automation Solution with Software Defined Networking
The Cybersecurity team created an innovative security automation solution that enabled a large media company to provide a more secure environment for its online content and live TV events. The project enabled the company to use OpenStack technology to provide a public-facing cloud environment, accessed by millions of customers, that can grow on demand securely with little involvement from firewall and security engineering. The solution provides a template for CSC to use with other clients where OpenStack or Software Defined Networking requirements exist to deploy firewall rules automatically and efficiently. This OpenStack and SDN project is a real-world example of one of the newest technology solutions in data center and security automation.
