Eliminating the risk of hidden malware during a mass M&A’s data-center migration
A prominent player in the insurance and financial industry with millions of customers and subsidiaries in several sectors has acquired a medium-sized insurance company to expand its footprint and market share. The acquiring company owns a robust IT backend with advanced digital services serving customers and agents in a paperless environment.
With the need to migrate hundreds of millions of files of the acquired company and merge its data center into the acquiring company one, the requirement for a smooth and safe process was a top priority. The risk of having potential undetected malware hidden in the data centers of the acquired company forced the executive IT team to look for a way to define a secured migration process that will leave nothing to good luck.
As a long-time customer of odix, the organization sought a solution to eliminating unknown malware, 0-day, and ransomware threats from the acquired data center while meeting a demanding deadline. In collaboration with odix's security experts, the company chose the FileDiligence service, which used Deep File Analysis technology and TrueCDR patented algorithm to eliminate all incoming files and attachments. By incorporating sufficient sanitization instances, the service successfully migrated the affected data center within the timeframe without any security incidents.
As more organizations engage in M&A processes, the risk of malware hidden between tens of millions of files in old data centers cannot be ignored. FileDiligence by odix offers a clean, efficient, and agile solution for data center migration in cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments. Its scalable instances mechanism can handle data centers of any size within the required timeframes. With FileDiligence, organizations of all sizes can ensure a safe and secure M&A process without unwanted cyber incidents.
