Client – State Oil Fund of Azerbaijan (SOFAZ)
The State Oil Fund of Azerbaijan (SOFAZ) is responsible for transforming depletable hydrocarbon reserves into financial assets generating perpetual income. SOFAZ works to preserve macroeconomic stability, ensure fiscal-tax discipline, decrease dependence on oil revenues and stimulate development of the non-oil sector. It finances major national scale projects to support socio-economic progress. SOFAZ works actively working with external counterparts and partners and is connected to the SWIFT global money transfer system.
SOFAZ has an extended IT infrastructure that includes a large number of network devices, software systems, user computers and peripheral equipment.

The fund’s software security systems no longer met their growing requirements. SOFAZ invited ED to optimize and expand the functionality of their security tools.

Over the next ten months the project was successfully implemented.
The solution designed and implemented by ED enabled the client to enhance business value through the following achievements:
