A global chemical company sought a wireless network that would eliminate the necessity and expense of hard-wiring buildings. Due to the "Openness" of wireless communications, the company required a highly effective security protocol that would block hackers and others who might wish to access sensitive company data, while allowing easy accessibility to employees at work, on the road or at home. Working closely with the client, CSC supported development of a wireless LAN architecture that enables appropriate network security by leveraging the client's existing "Two-factor authentication" security solution. This helped the employees to have fast and easy access to the wireless network anywhere within their building; collaboration and productivity have also improved.
