The new backup solutions included the installation, configuration and support of EBR/Acronis for both Honeywell and non-Honeywell systems, as well as optimization and management of EBR/Acronis Server. Our OT team was also responsible for rollout and optimization of McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and Microsoft WSUS Server management, including end device Operating System (OS) patching and Antivirus (AV) definition delivery.

In addition to these network management duties, the team also provided management of checkpoint and Palo Alto firewall policies, including vulnerability assessments and rule hardening.
