- Industry: Government
- Country: Malaysia
- Existing customer of Sangfor Cyber Command, which is used for threat detection
Customer Pain Points
The customer faced challenges due to limited in-house cybersecurity manpower and expertise, impacting the effectiveness of their cybersecurity operations.
Recognizing the risks of an insufficient security team, the customer conducted a proof of concept (POC) to evaluate the Sangfor Cyber Guardian MDR service, having been impressed by the capabilities of our Field Application Engineer (FAE) team. Key elements of the POC included:
- Deployment: We assisted the customer with upgrading Sangfor Cyber Command to the latest version for integration with our Cyber Guardian MDR service. We also assisted them with configuring their (third-party) firewalls allowing Cyber Command to connect to the Cyber Guardian cloud platform via TLS-encrypted channels. The smooth deployment and onboarding process made it easy for the customer to understand and appreciate the service’s ease of management.
- Asset Discovery: The Cyber Guardian MDR service team first conducted a comprehensive asset discovery exercise to identify all assets within the organization. Our service team unveiled assets in the customer’s server farm that they were previously unaware of.
- Threat Hunting: Through proactive threat hunting, the MDR service team revealed vulnerabilities within the customer’s environment. This included the identification and remediation of the critical log4j vulnerability, helping the customer avert a severe cyber incident. The team also uncovered several code-related vulnerabilities in the customer’s new mobile app, which was launched during the POC.
- Notification and Reporting: Throughout the POC, the customer was highly impressed with the response time of our service experts, being informed of detected threats as soon as they were identified. WhatsApp was used as the main form of instant communication with the customer. Regular service reports were also presented to provide greater context and analysis of detected events.
The results of the exhaustive POC proved to the customer both the value of Cyber Guardian and the level of our service expertise. The customer has now entrusted Sangfor Cyber Guardian with the security of their critical assets.
