Securing Network Infrastructure for Cybersecurity Company

In search of a solution for boosting the IT infrastructure security tool performance and redesigning the UX, Synergy Codes offered extensive expertise through a comprehensive three-stage Design Workshop.

For a client operating in the cybersecurity industry, we have created an IT infrastructure security tool that allows enterprise-class companies to research the security of web tools. The primary need was to audit and rewrite the code, as well as to improve UX. Synergy Codes proposed conducting the Design Workshops. It resulted in developing the PoC and MVP concepts based on the client’s requirements, along with the set of features ready to implement in an advanced IT infrastructure security tool prototype.

Discovery

The Discovery Phase aims to accomplish the business goals and possible mistakes elimination. It allows for defining a problem, which is then transformed into an appropriate IT infrastructure security tool design. During this stage, the client and the designers discuss the idea, plan, and evaluate the product’s essential features. The final solution focuses on delivering the tool that enables working on thousands of objects using extensive features to optimize navigation on a vast canvas.

Building a User Story Mapping for IT infrastructure security tool

Building User Story Mapping

During the workshops, the Design Team and the client make up the decisions on the user journey throughout the future IT infrastructure security tool. The purpose is to develop the logic of the functionalities and work out the operating schemes.

Persona Creation

The purpose is to discuss the needs of potential users and design solutions to answer the needs of the personas. At this stage of design and workshop works, activities aimed at selecting personas, i.e., model users, who can represent the needs of real people using the solution, intensify. Personas should have distinctive character qualities that will help share the product.

UX Prototyping

The purpose of the Prototyping Phase is to select the right solution for the client’s needs. The prototypes are produced during the experimental process while design teams implement ideas into tangible forms from paper to digital. During the Prototyping Phase, the client can refine and validate the designs, enabling the right products to be introduced.

The optimal guide contains the most wanted information on types and font sizes, color palette, and additional dimensions and appearance input.

Lo-fi mockups

Lo-fi mockups are developed with the client, presenting the first sketch and features’ refinements without UI implementations.

UI Design Phase

The phase draws unique and coherent solutions for the client’s project. The UI Design phase is the critical part of any software product and requires effort to deliver a functional outcome. During the UI Design Phase, we employ the developers’ team to turn the design into a tool that meets all the client’s requirements and needs.

From PoC to MVP

The complexity of the project depends on the original arrangements with the client. The flexible approach assumes the execution of both PoC and MVP of the project. The client knows the activities’ scope in two cases and receives appropriate documentation and a cost estimate for the activities.

The Design Team presents the client with the project agenda based on the information. Using interactive tools, the team starts the process divided into three phases. The further UI development and the dev teams support only when the requirements and needs are well discussed, recognized, and agreed upon.
