New security conceptThe important area of IT security was also to be redefined and was a key focus for the company from the outset with the introduction of consistent cloud usage, which was exacerbated in the COVID 19 pandemic due to home office working. For Skaylink, this includes analyzing endpoints and on-premises environments that are actually managed by another service provider. Effective measures were defined based on an examination of all components. Conditional access is now one of the standard security solutions. If the prerequisites for this are not met, multi-factor authentication is used. The company first set up two-factor authentication with password and PIN with Skaylink, and then also introduced Windows Hello for Business for passwordless access via fingerprint reader or facial recognition. Log analytics and Azure automation come into play as another example. The logs of certain on-premises systems are evaluated completely automatically in the background to respond when someone tries to reset their password multiple times. Usually, the company dictates which devices employees are allowed to use. However, due to the work in the home office, employees sometimes also worked with their own devices, which was done without any problems. For the bring-your-own-device approach, Microsoft Intune was used for endpoint management. This made it possible for the first time to also manage private laptops and Apple devices in order to meet data protection and compliance requirements. The device owner has access to the resources, but these no longer run via the domain, but via the tenant in the cloud, and access is very simple via single sign-on.
License consulting and SAP integrationSkaylink also assisted the company with licensing issues and removed many obstacles. Today, many applications run via Microsoft Azure in the public cloud, but individual ones such as payroll accounting also run in a private cloud. In the meantime, the company in Frankfurt am Main has already set up an SAP test system including Adobe Forms Server, SAP Web Dispatcher and EDI landscape. The next step will be to transfer the entire SAP landscape there.
