InterVision was chosen to help the California Secretary of State’s office ensure that their website would not be a point of weakness for hackers to tamper with the voting process of elections. We secured communication to the website and migrated the on-premise MySQL database to AWS. The end result was a modernized website that utilized an upgraded CMS and also leveraged cloud based autoscaling and elasticity. These changes alleviated previous performance problems and allowed the SOS website to support the election season without any issues.

The California Department of Technology (CDT), Office of Information Security (OIS) recognized the importance of preparing for State entities to migrate significant internal and customer applications into the cloud. To ensure that these efforts were realized with appropriate secure development processes, security architecture, configuration, and monitoring/management capabilities, CDT sought out InterVision, who developed DevOps/SecOps tools and processes to support both multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.

CDT chose InterVision to be their technology partner in this endeavor and we developed an AWS infrastructure solution to meet their needs. We also architected an AWS multi-account strategy with multiple environments to meet security best practices. By utilizing the AWS cloud, CDT now has a highly scalable and highly available Splunk implementation for data collection, analysis, and security monitoring of critical infrastructure. As CDT expands and extends Splunk to monitor even more devices and environments, the AWS infrastructure will be able to scale and extend accordingly.
