D4t4 in action
Management of a data platform for an industry wide anti-fraud consortium
Business challenge: A not-for-profit company acting as a central hub for the sharing of knowledge and sensitive data to a network of industry specific service providers, were looking for a highly secure, performant and scalable platform, packaged as a hosted/managed service, delivered in a short timeframe, including a DR facility. This environment was to support the deployment of a new industry leading software application.
We architected a managed solution that ensured performance, scalability and availability, with particular focus on the high level of security required, these considerations defined the Service Level Agreement (SLA) that operates on a 24x7x365 basis, covering both hardware and software.
We also provide a number of services under the SLA to ensure that the infrastructure is performing efficiently and that planned upgrades and backups are carried out as required. Extensive reporting mechanisms ensure that our client is kept informed of the infrastructure’s performance.
Security is a high priority so a customised plan is incorporated into the SLA focusing on these aspects of the service. Independent security analysis and penetration testing of the network environment ensures security measures are constantly re-evaluated in response to ever-changing security risks.
This was a challenging project from both technical and practical aspects. D4t4 Solutions’ experience in technical and time challenging infrastructure projects was invaluable in overcoming risks and potential issues, enabling a successful delivery of the project as planned.
