Moving security to the cloud
Mark Williams, Senior IT Manager, Global Networks/ Telecommunications/ Security BorgWarner, Inc., a global leader in propulsion system solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, is every bit as busy as his title suggests. Efficiency is key to his role evaluating, implementing, and managing global network services, technology, and infrastructure security across 62 locations in 17 countries.
“As an enterprise-wide cloud initiative got underway, we needed to secure users moving around inside the company, as well as outside of and away from the network,” says Williams. “Prior to the cloud migration, we were protected by Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS).

BorgWarner opted to migrate from Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) to Cisco Umbrella to protect its growing network, without adding latency, resource requirements, or hardware.
- Significantly reduced incident response time
- Bolstered and extended security coverage beyond the perimeter
- Improved productivity by streamlining security management process
- Containment and protection against WannaCry ransomware outbreak
“The cloud migration from CWS to Umbrella was quick and swift. In less than two weeks, we were able to seamlessly implement Umbrella across our global network and gain significant visibility that we didn’t have before.”

This solution entailed back-hauling all of our traffic to four points of concentration. We found that as we added more egress points to the network, we had to add more service policies to firewalls, which required management at the firewall level. This increased the number of daily tasks and created management complexity for us.”
