Kompas Gramedia ran into some issues when using its previous infrastructure. The company made use of Internet Protocol Security – or IPsec – to connect the main headquarters to all its branches. While these Internet Security Protocols can be effective at times, the one in use posed too many risks and became unreliable for the company.
Additionally, the infrastructure contained a single point of failure - this meant that a breakdown in one area would immediately lead to a shutdown across all of them. The company also did not invest in adequate internet security for its head office. This pushed them to find a solution that would also improve its overall cybersecurity posture.
