The Client

A leading Australian IT service management firm with a global presence felt increasingly exposed in today’s ever-evolving cyber threat landscape. With a large employee base and vast amounts of client data entrusted to them - a robust security posture was paramount. However, their existing IT environment presented a significant challenge.

The Challenge

A disjointed IT infrastructure consisted of a lack of security tools that failed to communicate effectively. This siloed approach made it difficult to gain comprehensive security insights and hampered their ability to detect and respond to potential threats. Additionally, a lack of deep familiarity with the security landscape left them vulnerable to making strong security decisions. The absence of a comprehensive incident response plan further amplified their anxieties. The company's executive directors recognised the urgent need for a unified solution to safeguard their digital assets, ensure compliance with regulations, and provide continuous threat monitoring.
