Vernovis Completes O365 Hardening
A retail company bombarded with phishing attacks on a daily basis, both internally and externally, needed help securing their O365 environment. They were unable to identify the fault in their system leaving their customers exposed to malicious emails and employees deceived into making payments to invalid entities. Unfortunately, the threats had become so severe and widespread that Amazon banned them from selling products on their platform, on which they were the leading seller in their industry.
Vernovis immediately provided a Senior Cloud Architect who assessed, developed and implemented a two-part solution. First included creating a standardized process to securely add new workstations to their network, limit user access, and strengthen authentication methods. The client’s internal team, managed by the Vernovis consultant, completed this portion of the project. Second involved strengthening their cloud security by hardening their current O365 environment and implementing a third party security solution. Vernovis’ consultant completed the security aspects on his own. Upon finalization, the consultant ensured proper knowledge transfer to the client’s team and provided a documented process, automated scripts, and the ability to populate systems with predefined accounts
The company now has a
stronger security stance and is less likely to be victim of attack.
Their reputation, clients and employees are protected, and the loss of revenue and erroneous external payments have ceased. They are extremely pleased with the Vernovis consultant’s work and continue to utilize his expertise on additional projects.
