Gwinnett County Public Schools Defends Against Advanced Malware with Lastline Enterprise - Case Study

Posted by Freddy Mangum on 10/2/14 9:24 AM

"The challenge for all of us — CISOs, security managers, and security analysts alike — is to quickly detect and eradicate malicious files before they can be leveraged towards a full-scale security breach. Lastline Enterprise helps us satisfy this challenge.”

The Challenge

Cyber criminals have transitioned from casting a wide net with opportunistic attacks to targeting specific organizations with the intent of stealing high-value information and data. Because of this shift, Gwinnett County Public Schools, the largest public school system in Georgia, realized it was necessary to acquire technology that could adequately defend against new threats to protect their assets.

“Businesses large and small are under constant cyber-attack.  We have seen the threat landscape transform from traditional attacks centered on the network perimeter to sophisticated “phishing” and “drive-by-download” assaults directed at our end-users and endpoints systems.”

Aerospace Organization Defends Against Advanced Cyber Threats with Lastline - Case Study

Posted by Freddy Mangum on 9/30/14 2:00 PM

The Challenge

This US aerospace research and development organization tackles one of the most ambitious (and arguably the most difficult) engineering projects in the world - the design and creation of space exploration vehicles capable of transporting people into orbit. Security teams at this organization take on the massive task of protecting property and data anywhere where assets are deployed. They realized that there was a gap in the security mosaic that needed to be addressed. They needed assistance gaining visibility into network activity, file downloads, and correlating URLs visited by network users to subsequently observed threats. 

“Our biggest security challenge is adapting and remaining vigilant to new threats while remaining cost effective as new technologies develop.”
