Columbia, MD, July 31, 2015 - For the IT security team at Exostar, staying ahead of security issues across international data centers presented some unique intricacies beyond those faced by other SaaS providers. Exostar’s cloud-based solutions help companies in aerospace and defense, life sciences and healthcare mitigate risk and solve identity and access challenges, allowing them to collaborate securely, efficiently and compliantly with their partners and supply chains.
“We take seriously our obligation to protect the intellectual property and sensitive data belonging to our customers, as well as supporting and enhancing their ability to comply with corporate, industry and government regulatory requirements,” said Rob Sherwood, director of security, Exostar. “Information protection takes on an added dimension for us because our customers may be collaborators on one A&D program or drug development effort and competitors on another. We must carefully partition customer data in a multi-tenant environment, which adds tremendous complexity to vulnerability assessments and remediation.”
Sherwood and his team needed a comprehensive solution that would address all aspects of vulnerability management while also providing broader and deeper insight into the overall health of the network through an intuitive, user-friendly interface. Exostar chose SecurityCenter Continuous View from Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring, because of its advanced analytics, impressive overall value and extreme flexibility. SecurityCenter CV also delivered a clearer, more accurate, real-time view into the actual status of the company’s network infrastructure.
With continuous network monitoring from Tenable, Sherwood has been able to take collaboration across Exostar departments to new heights. SecurityCenter CV helped him shift Exostar from a more reactive threat management posture to a proactive approach closely aligned with top-level business objectives. Today, the enterprise-wide security intelligence delivered by SecurityCenter CV contributes to enhanced security and performance across the entire Exostar production environment.
“With Tenable I have a clear, accurate picture of current, past and even anticipated events,” said Sherwood. “The dashboards and centralized monitoring capabilities of SecurityCenter CV give me a macro view and provide solid metrics that add value to our entire organization, not just to our security program.”
