TIARA Case Study

Customer Profile:
In 2018 a mid-sized financial services company, serving the investment needs of large enterprises, SOEs, banks and insurance companies, discovered that two of its virtual servers were infected with two different types of ransomware. Sangfor deployed their Endpoint Secure and Cyber Command solutions.

Existing Security Protection:

    • Perimeter Gateways
    • Endpoint Protection

Pitfalls of the Traditional Approach:
    • Limited Detection: Traditional FW and AV are limited to known attacks.
    • Narrow Scope: FW blind to internal activities & AV limited to managed endpoints.
    • Lack of Security Operations: Protection available without response capabilities.
    • Wide Open: FW is designed to open doors to apps & partners.


1) The customer’s IT department reported two incidents of ransomware, and unsure if they had more hidden threat lurking in the system, they called in TIARA.

2) 1 week after Cyber Command was deployed, TIARA uncovered hundreds of servers infiltrated with mining malware, among several other security issues.
