bytepark has evaluated and relaunched Account and Identity Management for The Social Chain AG. As part of this work, the accounts of almost 500 employees and nearly ten subsidiaries were consolidated and centralized. Account management forms the basis for Single Sign On (SSO) and therefore for the services and tools provided centrally. The centralization of user accounts involved examining and introducing new aspects relevant for security and the GDPR.
bytepark has introduced centralized, cloud-based web server management at The Social Chain AG. This means that all of the group’s digital assets are securely and centrally managed by IT. A web hosting guideline has been developed for the various subsidiaries of The Social Chain AG to provide assistance when setting up new digital projects. The centralization of code in a GIT repository that is binding for developers, both internal and external, marked an important step towards securing intellectual property. Existing projects were migrated for this purpose. In new projects, GIT is part of the new development process for digital projects.

“Technology must enable, simplify and protect. In an environment of dynamic online growth, IT/data security, the protection of intellectual property and centralized account management are more than just buzzwords for The Social Chain AG. bytepark is not only a trusted partner here, but an integral pillar of our IT strategy.”
Monitoring digital assets is an important task for The Social Chain AG. bytepark identified areas for action during the course of an IT security assessment. Measures have been taken here to monitor web servers, enabling fast intervention. In addition, a dashboard system has been implemented that enables individual shops and websites to be monitored and supports continuous monitoring.
In addition to account management, bytepark centrally evaluated and implemented various services and tools. One of the most important tools is the helpdesk system which enables efficient processes in IT support. For collaboration, the Atlassian suite with JIRA, Confluence and InVision were introduced for creative processes. In terms of security, central offers, such as Digital Self Defense Trainings were designed and offered on an ongoing basis.
