Ukraine Crisis

Consumer Electronics Giant

keeping clients and their customers safe in the cloud

A multi-day attack on one of the largest consumer electronics providers in the world resulted in around 80 million accounts being compromised and huge interruption of service to their
customer base. The hack resulted in an outage of over 20 days.

Our client needed to be sure that its cloud infrastructure and code would not be susceptible to a similar attack.

The Client’s Challenge

This leader in digital entertainment wanted to validate and optimise the security of their cloud based network and connected devices. 

Concerned that their internal teams were too close to the challenge, and that the pace of change in the Cyber Security environment may have created gaps in inhouse experience, the client wanted to make sure they had themselves and their customers covered.

Our Approach

  • External Expert Vulnerability Assessment
  • Collaborative Development of an Internal Cloud Security Strategy
  • Design for Security principles implemented
  • Stand up a team of security specialist drawn from across multiple Vertex sites.
  • Design and Delivery of optimised and hardened infrastructure

The Result

The Vertex consultancy team defined a clear and measured strategy, enabling the Vertex
Engineering team to revolutionise the security of the network and connected devices. Our speed of response, focus, and subject specific knowledge resulted in the client choosing to retain the Vertex team onsite on an ongoing basis.
