Over a multitude of industries, businesses, and organizations all over the country, Tallan is proud to be a long-term technology partner for our clients. We have an offering tailored to suit the specific needs of companies through almost any stage of digital growth. We’ve found that our Microsoft-funded Solution Assessments are often the first step customers take in their journey to modernization, with two of the most popular being the DPi30 and Security Assessment. Both were utilized by a recent client, with outstanding results. Here’s a quick breakdown of what these engagements can offer:
DPi30 helps your team visualize the role of a modern data and analytics platform using Azure Services, through a collaborative workshop methodology. Tallan’s Data Platform in 30 Days includes a design workshop to assist your organization in identifying scenarios, creating a reference architecture design, implementing a landing zone, and finally modernizing your data estate using Azure Data Services (ADS). Your team can expect:
- An Executive-level summary of the engagement.
- A fully provisioned ADS Landing Zone.
- Source code in Azure DevOps or Git Hub Repo, if it’s available.
- Cost consumption estimates and recommended next steps.
Tallan’s Security Assessment
Cyber risks are evolving and growing more pervasive every day. Tallan’s Security Assessment is an audit and development of a new approach to your security strategy based on your current resources and company objectives. We focus on the most vulnerable core areas while examining your business’s environment using tools like Secure Score to provide education, assistance, and remedial recommendations.
- Tallan starts with four workshops covering: Scope & Objectives, Zero Trust Framework, Cloud Adoption Framework best practices, and Azure/Office 365 Secure Score.
- Following these workshops, Tallan identifies security risk, gaps, and areas of concern using Azure and Office 365 Secure Score, among other processes and tools.
- Finally, Tallan identifies unmanaged devices, unsupported operating systems, and vulnerabilities with a thorough plan for the next steps.
Building Security Posture for a Global Aerospace Manufacturer
As part of a recent client project, Tallan utilized these assessments for a major industrial and aerospace firm. In under 30 days, the DPi30 engagement successfully produced a live use-case in Azure. The client wanted to better identify potential security risks across their Office 365 and cloud infrastructures, which prompted their working in Azure. Tallan continued to assist this firm in fine-tuning its security approach by identifying potential gaps and devising a plan to strengthen its security posture.
Tallan reviewed the current security policies for 4,420 workstations, 1,065 Windows Server nodes, 10 Linux nodes, and 17 domains.
Tallan began by focusing on the client’s goals, followed by workshops in order to determine the best possible plan. These informative meetings focused on the Azure Security Center and the Zero Trust concept. Tallan looked over the client’s Defender for Cloud Secure Scores, Microsoft 365 environment, Identity Secure Score, and Azure policies. Tallan offered a customized repair plan to improve the client’s security scores, which improved their ability to respond to threats. Tallan then reviewed the current security policies for a total of 4,420 workstations, 1,065 Windows Server nodes, 10 Linux nodes, and 17 domains.
The two-week engagement resulted in an assessment of 2,506 total resources and 4,906 Azure policies! Tallan discovered that 3,000+ individuals had not signed up for Azure Multi-factor Authentication (MFA). This client had 651,379 instances of classified data points such as ABA routing numbers and Driver’s License numbers to protect. The Tallan team detected two inactive DLP policies throughout the examination. Both were turned on shortly after the engagement.
