Industry: Energy

Solution: Security

Challenge

Based in Solna, Sweden, Vattenfall provides energy services to 6.5 million business and residential customers across several European countries. The power company is committed to fossil free living, and as part of this goal it has modernized its IT ecosystem by moving resources to Microsoft Azure and managing security and
governance in the cloud.

Solution

To manage security and governance in the cloud, Vattenfall worked with Orange Networks (a Logicalis company) to deploy Azure Security Centre and other Azure services to better identify and remediate potential security risks and to optimize its cloud deployments and spending. Working with the internal teams an implementation guide was provided to deliver technical trainings and facilitate knowledge transfer. Supporting this were Azure infrastructure workshops helping Vattenfall develop and implement a monitoring strategy. The team also created and implemented centralized Azure Policies to control governance for Vattenfall’s Azure resources and updated and improved the company’s existing Azure security guidelines.

Benefits

  • Full cost transparency ensuring better, more efficient spend
  • New focus on the business value of IT as they are now able to provide business users with a professionally organised and well managed cloud service with strong security and a good governance model.
