Security Architecture

With some of the most creative, forward thinking, business driven Security Architects in the industry, Zimbani’s trusted advisors
consider the strategic paradigm while structuring the relationship between process and technical solutions.

Rational frameworks, a development of patterns and adherence to security controls provides our Security Architects with the tools to achieve holistic enterprise security requirements and granular integration with legacy and enterprise based systems.

We encompass clear methods for defining, identifying and mitigating risk within delivery, and meet every relevant control objective.

At project-level, there’s a tendency to address security issues through design and deployment of point solutions that cater to a
point-in-time requirement.

In addition, technology drivers tend to overlook the need to consider broader organisational control objectives and ongoing operational aspects of the solution.

Security architecture reduces development costs, achieves consistency, enables reuse, leverages common enterprise processes and technology, and develops synergy between systems.

Security Architecture is driven by Information Security, which protects against a range of internal and external threats to ensure business continuity, minimise business risk, and protect company technology and information assets.

  • Consistency for defining and describing security controls
  • A common methodology of applying a risk-driven approach to the application of security controls across solutions
  • Business and technology objectives are not impeded but complemented
  • Controls must be achievable and realistic to an organisation’s appetite and capabilities
  • Reuse where possible: Incumbent technologies, existing processes, common controls and sound process
  • Alignment to existing corporate blueprints, policy, standards, patterns and processes
  • One size does not fit all
