TDIC enhances network security with Pulse Secure.
Abu Dhabi's Tourism Development &
Investment Company (TDIC) has deployed security solutions from Pulse Secure to
protect its IT infrastructure and enhance operations.
The Pulse Secure software and appliances have helped TDIC,
the master developer for tourism, projects in Abu Dhabi, to tackle issues of
secure network access, high network demand and compliance with security
TDIC is involved with many collaborative projects, which require
allowing third party contractors to connect to its network and shared
resources. the IT department had previously struggled with ensuring secure
access to both its network and shared resources for TDIC employees and teams
from partner organisations.
"We normally have between 800 to 1000 TDIC staff on our
network but during major projects we may need to provide IT resources and
support for hundreds of additional users such as contractors, architects, project
managers and other individuals from our partner community," explained Muhammad
Asad Khalil, Senior Network and Security Engineer for TDIC.
The reporting capabilities in the new platform also enables
TDIC to meet the regulatory requirements and audits of the National Electronic
Security Authority (NESA), as specified in the UAE Information Assurance
Standards (UAE IAS).
The Pulse Secure 5000 series appliances running Pulse Policy
Secure Network Admission Control (NAC) software have allowed TDIC to develop
processes to ensure each device that connects to its network is vetted to meet
required standards. New staff or partners, and new devices can be onboarded
either automatically, or in just a few minutes with the new solutions.
Abdul Rehman Tariq, MEA Regional Manager for Pulse Secure
said, "The project at TDIC shows how regulatory requirements can be a perfect
catalyst for seizing the initiative with transformative approaches to network
security that can also provide a major boost to productivity and operational efficiency."
