- IBM i / AS400
When the pandemic hit and stay-at-home orders were issued, many companies, including our client, went remote. With a fully-remote workforce, our client wanted to ensure that the remote connections to office PCs were secure on the IBM server. Briteskies was hired as IBM i and Security professionals to help double check that appropriate security measures were being taken.
Once started, security problems popped up right and left and it was a good thing the client sought out our services before something went terribly wrong.
The business was using a home style router in their office instead of a consumer grade one. While home style routers are fine for the average home user, they lack the necessary cybersecurity measures business networks require to protect large amounts of sensitive materials.
Secondly, their network design was majorly flawed and outdated leaving them susceptible to incoming attacks without any way to fight them off.
After identifying the obvious, and less obvious, security vulnerabilities, our team went to work with teaching the client how to implement best security practices.
With the training and help of Briteskies's IBM i and security expert, Robert Nettgen, the client was able to secure their current environment and now knows steps to take to continuously improve their information security blueprint in the future.
