National Computing and Information Service (NCIS) is the Korean government’s institute responsible for managing the government’s internet data center for e-government services, which is used nationwide by its government employees and all citizens. As an early adopter of new technologies, maintenance costs of these IT infrastructures were increasing rapidly. Disparate and incompatible infrastructures were unable to handle the increased service requests, resulting in constant service failures. Faced with increasing threats, attacks and hardware/software vulnerabilities, traditional infrastructures were unable to sufficiently prevent against critical issues.
