BSE’s Challenge

“For the BSE, security, speed and reliability are not options, they are essentials that must scale to reach India’s vast population and geography.” – Shivkumar Pandey, CISO, BSE

Bseindia.com delivers dynamic stock, currency, and debt pricing data, which is updated continuously in real time to thousands of software systems and brokers across India. For the BSE, security, speed and reliability are not an option – they are essential for every user across India’s vast geography. But their challenge was more than just caching and accelerating website content. BSE’s information systems attract a barrage of application attacks by bad actors intent on finding and exploiting vulnerabilities in the exchange. Legacy firewall technologies weren’t keeping up with the evolving application stack, so the user experience suffered. And security engineering struggled to keep firewall rules ahead of the evolving threats.

BSE required:

  • Zero latency in data transfers
  • Security for their applications and DNS across multiple threat vectors
  • Agile software development and change management
  • Scalable, flexible application security

Using a unique Super PoP architecture in strategically placed interconnects across India’s telecom infrastructure, Edgio’s platform optimized acceleration of dynamic content transfer at scale, such as uncacheable BSE content, including stock prices and data transfers across open APIs with brokers and third-party software systems.

Edgio’s Dual WAF ensures that the BSE is as secure as it is fast. The dual WAF minimizes false positives by using an exclusive parallel firewall instance, enabling BSE to rapidly test and propagate rule updates on production traffic without impacting users. With these new features and the powerful analytics and tools we provided, BSE transformed its CI/CD processes to improve turnaround times for new enhancements and configuration updates while strengthening its security agility.

By deploying Route DNS, one of the fastest DNS available, we improved the speed of DNS resolution while maintaining DNSSEC so that health checks could occur and routing decisions could be made in real time.

BSE’s Solution and Outcome

“Edgio’s Edge Security Solution enabled us to unify our application, security and infrastructure teams into a common security process, Digital Convergence Technologies was indispensable in leading the effort locally, helping coordinate and align the requirements across our various teams.” – Shivkumar Pandey, CISO, BSE

By utilizing an array of detailed performance metrics and analytics information, BSE improved cache hit ratios, reduced traffic back to its origin, controlled infrastructure costs, and increased ROI. Dual WAF and rate limiting reduced malicious traffic and further reduced the load on back-end infrastructure, improving the efficiency of their operations. Edgio’s platform helped BSE realize impressive results.

“Edgio’s network inter-connects and acceleration software delivered significant improvements in web page response and loading times, with gains in excess of 30% in certain undeserved metro regions.” – Shivkumar Pandey, CISO, BSE
