AP Secretariat is an e-government pioneer in India. The organisation provides a range of citizen-centric services via the Internet to the population of Andhra Pradesh - the country’s fourth largest state by area and fifth largest by population.
AP Secretariat’s e-government projects and services are underpinned by a complex IT infrastructure, which includes a database of 1.7 million digital files. The size of the infrastructure makes it vulnerable to virus, spam and Trojan attacks. However, responding to such threats was taking a long time.
The organisation has deployed a security management solution founded on CA Access Control and CA Secure Content Manager that provides multi-level protection for the infrastructure and network. The solution provides content filtering mechanisms for SMTP, HTTP and FTP and has also simplified administration.
AP Secretariat has improved access management, reduced spam and eliminated Internet-borne infections. The organisation now has greater visibility of security risks, and can detect anomalous events and the usage patterns of individual intruders.
