The company participated in the Cybersecurity Awards by submitting its nominations in the categories “Best Cybersecurity Solution – Identity and Access Management Solution & Services” and “Best Cybersecurity Project – Maritime Sector” with the projects “ Zero trust begins with secure access to all apps ” in KONKAT SA and ” CyberSecurity OnBoard “at Alassia NewShips Management Inc. respectively.
Zero trust begins with secure access to all apps
The solution implemented in the technical and construction company KONKAT SA, concerned the implementation of a fast, easy but mainly functional way of replacing the most non-maintainable technology of the company, in order to provide safe, upgraded and centralized access to its staff. These requirements were achieved with the integration of the BIG-IP APM (Access Policy Manager) platform of F5 by Pylones Hellas. The BIG-IP APM solution is a complete platform, which offers an organization a central point of user authentication and access to internally protected resources, so that all possible access needs are met, both on-premises and in the cloud!
The solution implemented for Alassia NewShips Management Inc., one of the largest Greek shipping companies, was the “Cybersecurity Onboard” solution. This specialized solution is based on the combination of new generation firewalling technologies and Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR (Extended Threat Detection and Incident Response). The combination of the above protection mechanisms, both at the installation level and at the management level, ensured the optimal protection of the infrastructure of Alassia NewShips Management Inc. At the same time, they enabled the company to have full visibility and supervision, using specialized central management tools.
Mr. George Linardakis, Sales Manager of Pylones Hellas, stressed about the awards: “Our distinction at the Cyber Security Awards is another proof that we are a company with vision, capabilities, state-of-the-art solutions, but mainly human capital that can meet the current modern digital challenges of our customers.
