A leading logistics company spread over 200 locations across 5,000 users was using traditional endpoint security technology. However, the solutions could not detect advanced threats which prompted the organisation to switch over to a better one. Value Point then provided the organisation with customised, Next-gen, advanced solutions that could detect and resolve many critical threats without interrupting business operations.
Challenges faced by the logistics company
Having reached saturation over the period, the traditional antivirus could not detect the unknown that was getting into the Logistics Company’s network, as the threat landscape had changed so rapidly. The antivirus could not continue to keep pace with the real menace, which included the file-less attacks that exploited the vulnerabilities in the operating system itself. The previous Antivirus had hidden Ransomware, advanced malware that connected many external malicious domains. In other words, the existing overall endpoint antivirus solution was faulty to a very large extent.
Nextgen solutions designed and deployed by Value Point
Post evaluation of the existing security compromises made due to vulnerabilities in the entire network, Value Point designed and deployed an antivirus solution which was highly advanced and signature less, and moreover did not require updating.
With this Next-gen antivirus, the logistics giant was able to gain high visibility on the application installed, rogue machines in the network, the status of the user account that was used, inventory of the assets in the system and the advance threats on the machine that were evaded from the detection of the previously used traditional antivirus. Added threat investigation and forensic capability helped in gaining full visibility and the endpoint security posture of the organisation.
Benefits and business outcomes
High severity credential theft malwares were prevented. More visibility was gained on the application used with identified machines were installed with versions of critical applications. The new platform’s cloud architecture uniquely unified Next-gen, AV, EDR and IT Hygiene in a single agent where these agents were managed via a powerful web portal. Moreover, any infected machine was remotely isolated from the network.
Operational effort required to manage an antivirus was reduced by 70% with this new implementation. IT engineers were free from Antivirus operational overheads and were focussing on core and higher level tasks, much to their delight. Performance and productivity were improved saving huge costs. This in turn added much value to the services provided by the logistics company to its customers.
Key differentiators of Value Point
Value Point deployed the advanced, next-gen solution within only a 4-day time period across 200 locations and 5,000 users. The solution also had a small foot-print and did not interfere or stall the regular business operations at the logistics organisation.
