9 MINS READ
Challenge: Connect operating systems across the globe
A leading consumer-packaged-goods company wanted to strengthen the synergy in their global operations spread across geographies.
They wanted to build a resilient infrastructure to connect these geographically dispersed operating systems. They had independent operating systems in data centers spread across five continents. They also wanted to accelerate post-merger standardization activities and build a system with high availability, maximum security, and performance. They were looking for a hybrid cloud setup that would not only assure cybersecurity, but also help maintain the integrity of the internal infrastructure at minimum costs.
Solution: Central network for worldwide operations
The system had a hybrid cloud setup with a high level of cybersecurity. TCS Cloud Foundation helped establish AWS resources needed for a secured foundation platform and implemented policies and controls needed for functions such as identity access management, change management, configuration management, endpoint security, incident service management, compliance, and capacity management.
TCS’ hybrid cloud network leveraged AWS Direct Connect to help distributed users and applications communicate with AWS cloud resources through a secure and reliable connection. TCS conducted network segmentation to build a zero trust security infrastructure by regulating inter-AWS virtual private cloud network traffic movements and authenticating all access requirements across different security layers.
TCS also built a patch management solution to ensure patch baseline compliance in operating systems used across multiple AWS accounts and integrated it with ServiceNow to provide self-service options for users.
With AWS infrastructure and security services, the company has connected geographically distributed systems.
TCS established secure global connectivity through network, platform, and patch management activities. By leveraging a hybrid cloud network, the global beverages major now enjoys connectivity between data centers located in five continents, enhanced network security, high performance, and seamless connectivity.
The AWS infrastructure and network capabilities provided the customer with the following benefits:
Unified infrastructure on a single global network
Reduction of network latency between region-based communications to less than 200 milliseconds
Protection of sensitive data by securing enterprise data in transit
100% security automation
Avoidance of compliance penalties with automated patch management
