Challenge

Bank of Baroda had the challenge of complying with India's Make in India initiative: replacing foreign switches with Make in India alternatives without disrupting the network’s performance. This task was compounded by the absence of prior deployment of such switches. The primary goal was to ensure seamless business continuity during this transition while maintaining compliance standards. Additionally, integrating the new switches with their existing NAC posed another challenge. Bank officials were particularly concerned about whether Make in India OEM could fulfill the large switch order swiftly, given the known chipset crisis.

Results

The integration of Make in India switches within Bank of Baroda's network marked a seamless transition, ensuring uninterrupted business operations without any downtime. This implementation strengthened the network's resilience, guaranteeing continuous connectivity and highly secure authorized access. The switches played a pivotal role in strengthening the bank's security protocols, ensuring the secure transmission of data and providing robust defense mechanisms against potential cyber threats. Moreover, the incorporation of a local security feature proved instrumental, enabling uninterrupted operations at the branch level, even in scenarios involving disconnects from the central system. This local security capability significantly contributed to maintaining operational integrity and safeguarding against unforeseen circumstances, ensuring the continued safety and reliability of the bank's operations.
