Full Security + Antivirus

Data security is a constantly moving target, with new and more refined threats arising on a daily basis. Organizations need to ensure their security systems are kept upto date and are familiar with the latest threats, and are deployed with great levels of expertize.

The Evolvea Security As A Service focuses on 3 main areas:

  • Perimeter Security
  • Data Access Governance – going to the core of the organization’s data assets
  • Antivirus

 

Perimeter security entails:

  • Firewalling
  • Perimeter Anti Virus
  • Anti Span
  • Web Filtering
  • User Authentication
  • Instant messaging & Peer to Peer Filtering
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS – Detection & Prevention)
  • VPN Concentrator (Site to Site and Mobile, IPsec and Clientless)

 

Data Access Governance:

  • Highly innovative models are emerging on the market which enable the monitoring of data assets, and ensuring these are only accessible or indeed access by authorized persons. Filippetti S.p.A. offers a security solution which enables;
  • Monitoring of all activities
  • Activitiy enrichment with data from directory services, security systems and HR

The Antivirus security complements the perimeter security, hence offering a Full Security Solution for the protection of servers within the client data center. Each area of security is constantly monitored, and the Filippetti S.p.A. Security services entails the continuous update of security technologies and constantly monitoring for security loopholes. Our customers can monitor their security environments via a portal and indeed obtain detailed information about incidents and remediaton. This way our customers can at all times have their finger on the pulse with regards to their security status, and have a clear overview of any incidents that may have occurred. This is very suitable especially for centralized structures.

Test and Development

For Test and Development, purposed, it is often necessary to have several copies of the Production Database exist at anyone time. This enables testing of different features, and rollback to previous versions. This places a huge demand on the IT infrastructure in terms of computational and data storage resources. It is often estimated that as little as 25% of data space is used for production data, the rest is used for Test and Development purposes. Cost and performance degradation to production environments caused by Test and Development efforts, place major strains on IT resources and often resulting in bureaucratic resources with regards to what can be tested, and when.

The concept of Virtual Database enables the simple recreation of copies of the virtual database in a few minutes, without consumption of infrastructural resources. Development organizations can access the Filippetti S.p.A. self service virtual database portal and create copies of their databases for test and development process, complete with intuitive interface for features such as roll back.

cloud12

Evolvea avails of a highly innovative technology which enables the virtualization of databases, all offered as a service via our platform:

  • Remove unnecessary & expensive database redundant capacity, reserved for test and development
  • Reduce the turnaround time to create accurate copies of the database for test purposes
  • Improve test and development processes – capable of testing on more instances of production database
  • Address bureaucracy required for the management of resources

The combination of this technology with the Evolvea Cloud platform, for IaaS and PaaS services, offers customers access to a service which addresses major cost and resources issues once and for all., whilst offering development teams greater levels of flexibility in their development activities.
