Scaling Operations, and Reducing Risk
Security operations is all about aligning the tools and processes with the business game plan. In today’s economic climate, however, justifying new spend must be correlated with the time and resources need to derive the full value. That’s where the IONIX Attack Surface Management Platform was able to shine.
“Security is everyone’s job. There’s no exemption regardless of your role within a tech organization. With IONIX Attack Surface Management discovery, prioritization, and workflows, we’ve gained cross-team visibility and simplified collaboration.”
With Ionix, WMG Coul Effectively Address Their Strategic Concerns
Growing need for effective and efficient solutions that can deliver value fast and with fewer resources in the current economic climate.
Operating with a fast moving, cloud-first strategy, combined with the hybrid reality of existing infrastructure and services.
Securing the ongoing and expanded internet exposure required to support the company’s remote and global workforce.
Promoting collaboration across different teams as a business and security imperative.
Immediate Time to Value
During the initial proof-of-value phase of their evaluation, WMG was impressed with the depth, breadth, and quality of the Attack Surface Risk Report generated by the IONIX platform and the key findings. Moving into deployment required just 5 days and had no impact on WMG’s technical staff.
“Our team’s mission is to re-invent technology engineering and operations to deliver value to internal and external clients; enabling revenue growth, scaling operational efficiency, and reducing risk.”
Widest Attack Surface Visibility With Ionix
WMG gained the most comprehensive attacker’s view with IONIX’s ASM SaaS platform. This includes their entire hybrid IT landscape: from internet exposed assets to their digital supply chains across network, cloud, on-premises, web applications, managed platforms, and SaaS. With IONIX’s attack surface management platform, WMG has up-to-date risk visibility of their dynamically changing attack surface.
“IONIX ASM automatically discovers, assesses, and prioritizes our attack surface risks, so our teams can focus on remediating the most critical risks, first. By providing prioritized action items, and not noisy alerts, IONIX helped us accelerate our mean time to resolution (MTTR) and effectively reduce risk.”
Reducing Noise and Accelerating Remediation
IONIX became the go-to security platform for WMG’s Global Cloud, Infrastructure, and Cybersecurity teams. Multi-layered prioritization combined with clear action items helped each team focus on their critical risks and reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR). The platform’s risk scores help the team with strategic planning and effective communication with executive stakeholders.
