Securing a hospitality company’s continued global expansion
A hospitality company wanted to improve its security maturity to support its global expansion, protect its reputation and demonstrate compliance.
By choosing ThreatDetect™, Redscan’s award-winning Managed Detection and Response service, the business has been able to successfully enhance security visibility across its hybrid infrastructure and respond to threats more swiftly than ever before.
- Large and distributed IT estate
- Legacy infrastructure and POS systems
- Limited internal security resources
A hospitality company had ambitious growth plans and wanted to ensure that its security strategy was aligned with its goal of becoming a leader in its sector.
With a global reach, the company had a number of complex security challenges. A security audit commissioned by its in-house security team identified potential improvements in several areas, including a need for proactive network monitoring to help reduce the time to detect and respond to threats across its infrastructure.
The company’s hybrid environment included specialist point of sales (POS) systems and a set of on-premises legacy IT systems. However, it had limited resources in-house to meet its need to conduct security monitoring and analysis 24/7/365. This challenge was exacerbated by the complexity of coordinating its cyber security functions globally, as well as the decision to refresh its infrastructure and services as part of a multi-year IT strategy.
The company wanted to move quickly to respond to the findings of the security audit that it had commissioned. It was in the process of putting together a new internal security team to address its requirements but needed an agile security partner to provide additional support.
To identify a suitable partner, the company conducted an extensive request for proposal (RFP) and after evaluating a number of managed security providers, it identified Redscan as the best choice for its needs.
The business recognised that ThreatDetect™, Redscan’s award-winning Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service, would provide the support and expertise it needed to hunt for and help shut down cyber threats, 24/7.
Combining experienced security personnel, leading network and endpoint detection technologies and up-to-the minute threat intelligence, ThreatDetect has significantly improved security visibility across the company’s hybrid infrastructure and reduced its mean time to detect and mean time to respond to threats.
The company’s IT Security & Infrastructure Director says:
“Maturing our security posture is vital to maintaining our global reputation. By working with Redscan, we have significantly improved our operational resilience, including our ability to swiftly detect and respond to threats.
“Redscan’s security experts work hand in hand with our in-house team, providing us with the insights we need to identify and eliminate threats across our environment 24/7. We see our partnership with Redscan as key to supporting our security and business objectives.”
