Transparent network in Tarnów S.A. Mechanical Plant

Tarnów S.A. Mechanical Plant satisfies a natural and existential need of security. As a manufacturer of modern arms and military equipment, remotely controlled weapon systems, and land and naval anti-air units, the company strives to achieve the leading position in the defense industry by the constant development of modern products, improving sales both on domestic and foreign markets, and enhancing organizational effectiveness. For a few years, Tarnów S.A. Mechanical Plant has been a leader in the development of mobile container-based systems for the military and other uniformed services. Its customers include Polish Armed Forces, formations supervised by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, other governmental services, companies from the Polish defense sector, arms manufacturers and customers for metal processing services. [text_divider type="single"] Issue [/text_divider] The purpose of implementing the tool was to enhance the knowledge of what is happening in the network, to monitor the usage of the hardware resources of servers and workstations, and also to obtain additional statistical assets. Due to the specific nature of Tarnów Mechanical Plant’s business, an important reason for software implementation was also the need to know about access to data and to protect the data against leaks or unauthorized access. [text_divider type="single"] Expectations [/text_divider] After diagnosing their own needs, Tarnów Mechanical Plant decided to implement the full Axence nVision package for 500 monitored devices. As the software was being developed, DataGuard module was also added. Its properties make it one of the key modules: the ability to manage rights of access to portable data media, allowing the use of selected data storage devices on specific computers or by specific Active Directory users and the logging of all changes of files kept on data media. [text_divider type="single"] Results [/text_divider] According to the expectations of Tarnów Mechanical Plant, a multitude of information on network activity was obtained. The administrators obtained a method for detecting the existing devices, and to diagnose problems occurring in the network infrastructure. They also gained satisfactory knowledge in the scope of the software installed by the users. What is most important – they can now eliminate unauthorized reconfigurations or unauthorized devices. As Axence nVision is equipped with a remote console module, network administrators saved their work time by being able to manage the network from the level of their own workstation. The remote help and increased discipline in the use of Internet resources by the employees were other added values. [divider type="1"] [/divider] “Tarnów S.A. Mechanical Plant is a reliable and trustworthy customer, with high requirements regarding control over the computer network. Close cooperation and professional technical consultations enabled the customer to implement nVision software in Professional edition. Due to this, the standard of advanced monitoring and management of computer network was raised,” Grzegorz Kędziora, Senior Technical Consultant, IMNS Polska Sp. z o.o.
