The University needed a powerful set of tools for managing identities across multiple directories.
As the first new sporting event the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had introduced since the 1924 Winter Olympics, the 2010 Youth Olympic Games was a highly anticipated event on the international sporting calendar. Its success depended on key IT systems, such as results processing, broadcaster data feeds, accreditations, Games logistics applications and public websites.
Atos Origin, under the direction of SYOCOG Technology, needed to ensure that comprehensive security monitoring and protection was in place for the more than 3,000 devices in the Youth Olympic Games infrastructure – including servers, workstations, network devices and appliances.
In the event of a security breach, Atos Origin knew its Incident Management team would be working under severe time restrictions. “During the two-week games operations phase, we knew we would only have a few seconds for detection and action,” said Vladan Todorovic, Atos Origin’s technical and IT security manager for the Youth Olympic Games. The team needed the ability to monitor the IT infrastructure with heightened visibility so it could quickly resolve security issues.
