The FOGUS Media Tool (FMT) was once vulnerable and exposed to cyber-attacks, lacking any security solutions to protect its operations. Recognizing the critical need for cybersecurity, the FMT eagerly embraced the full range of PUZZLE Services as one of the participating Demonstrators.

As an organization lacking a systematic approach to cybersecurity, FOGUS faced the challenge of safeguarding its assets, including the Media Tool, to ensure seamless operation and business continuity.

It sought cybersecurity services that were easy to deploy and manage, even for non-experts in the field, making the PUZZLE Project an ideal solution.

The Media Tool’s vulnerabilities called for robust identification and detection mechanisms such as network-level and web application firewalls, as well as intrusion detection and prevention systems. The PUZZLE Framework offered these mechanisms through its dedicated components, providing continuous risk assessment and monitoring of configuration file changes. Each incident triggered alarms through the PUZZLE Framework, ensuring responsible operators received friendly-user recommendations for security solutions. With these measures in place, the operation of the FOGUS Media Tool remained secure and intact.

The Media Tool’s network infrastructure was further enhanced with real-time risk assessment technologies and dynamic intrusion detection, effectively preventing fraudulent abuse. Through the PUZZLE Dashboard, the operator gained real-time insights and alerts as network components underwent continuous monitoring. This not only reassured end-users conducting experiments on the platform but also instilled confidence that their data remained secure.

Moreover, the FMT operator benefited from the sharing of threat intelligence through the PUZZLE Marketplace. By staying informed about potential threats and vulnerabilities faced by other SMEs&MEs, the operator could proactively prepare for similar attacks on the Media Tool’s infrastructure. In general, the FMT personnel’s cybersecurity awareness was heightened through the specific PUZZLE Service of Collective Threat Intelligence.

The impact of the PUZZLE Framework on the FOGUS Media Tool was transformative, upgrading its security, enhancing network infrastructure, and fostering cybersecurity awareness among personnel.

Through this collaboration, the FMT emerged as a resilient and secure cloud-based media network infrastructure, ensuring the protection of valuable assets and enabling uninterrupted operations. The success of the PUZZLE Project in fortifying the FMT demonstrates its effectiveness in bolstering cybersecurity within organizations and fostering collective intelligence for a safer digital landscape.
