Challenge

The Search for a Security Provider Focused on Security Strategy 

Axway wanted to enhance the security posture of its cloud-based solutions by optimizing resources. With security being critical to the company and their reputation, Michael Christensen, IT Security Manager, said, “Our goal was to find a security provider we could rely on. We knew that without great threat intelligence and knowledgeable people behind the scenes evaluating data to identify and understand the real issues triggering alerts, many solutions are not necessarily helping customers.”

“I knew there was a passion and a drive behind Mandiant to provide a really strong understanding of the security landscape and to help us find ways to be proactive”

Axway worked with the Mandiant Managed Defense team to minimize the impact of any security incident. Christensen highlights a focus on incident response and mitigating the potential for larger breaches as a differentiator for Mandiant Managed Defense: “The Mandiant team helps us identify very specific details about threats we encounter and delivers insights into how to address any vulnerabilities. This gives us a greater understanding of our environment and how to best secure it.”

“Mandiant gave us the opportunity to reevaluate how we do things as a company, and to align our thinking with the world-class expertise behind its solutions and services.”

Results

Strong Alignment With a Security Powerhouse

“Mandiant is a security powerhouse,” said Christiansen. “Bringing in Mandiant gave us the opportunity to reevaluate how we do things as a company, and to align our thinking with the world-class expertise behind Mandiant solutions and services. The relationship we developed with Mandiant has become a driving force in improving our overall security posture.”

“The Mandiant Managed Defense team dedicated another two weeks to validate that we had uncovered the full scope of the attack in the first 24 hours and that nothing else had happened. They talked with our team every day just to make sure we had collected the right information and understood how to defend our environment moving forward.”
