Intelligent Policies, Rapid Breach Prevention

The challenge as a multi-cloud consumer, Sky wanted to have a clear and simple way of evaluating any workload against a set of architecture pillars that made policy tracking more efficient and reduced its reliance on outdated Cloud Functions. In security terms, Sky required a smarter way to identify future failure points and potential breaches faster, with a secure cloud infrastructure.

Automation that Redefines Processes and Security

We were asked to evaluate where the customer could remove the need for costly, manual policies and introduce cloud-based automation solutions to quicken processes and improve security, including migrating projects between Sky Italy and Sky UK on GCP.

Goodbye Hardcoded Credentials, Hello Seamless Access

Our solution enabled Sky to make efficiency savings by migrating them from a custom DNS to Google Cloud DNS, eliminating hardcoded credentials to improve overall system security. We also implemented Service Account strategies to ensure secure access and reduce the risk of a breach. Using Infrastructure-as-Code (IAC) we transformed Sky’s Google Cloud org policies, adding automation to reduce manual errors.

A Journey towards a Future-Proof Infrastructure

Migrating to Google Cloud DNS delivered several benefits, including effectively removing costly infrastructure expenses associated with VMware, and streamlined maintenance to enhance reliability. Automated processes contributed to Sky’s future-ready cloud infrastructure which is now scalable, efficient, and offers seamless integration of new cloud technologies and services.
