case study

a success story

“tackling the cyber threat

confidential

the challenge

data breaches don’t just impact business operations—they are a huge factor in customer trust

 

the client having staff spread across more than 24 locations often depended on public networks to access cloud apps critical to their jobs

 

IT staff needed to gain visibility and control over a growing list of sanctioned cloud apps, and the ability to log and manage “shadow IT” cloud services, such as file sharing, that users adopted on their own

the long list of “front door” login screens presented a larger attack surface to cyber criminals attempting to use stolen credentials

the client required to safeguard sensitive personal data and valuable intellectual property without slowing down business growth and innovation

 

the client is one of the largest security solutions organisations in the middle east, with over +65,000 employees handling security, facilities, events and cash management services for numerous customers across the region

the solution

oryx services was requested to implement a data loss prevention (DLP) solution continually tuned to the needs of a large enterprise with hundreds of users

 

the clients' leadership wanted a solution that would provide enterprise-grade security in the cloud rather than on-premises

 

after some consideration, the client made the decision to use Forcepoint Cloud Security.

 

Forcepoint Cloud Protection offers the client real-time threat analysis and the ability to analyse full web page content, active scripts, web links, and executables

 

ThreatSeeker Intelligence technology, included within Forcepoint Cloud Protection, prevents employees from accessing dangerous URLs or files before they can be downloaded and protects company email channels from spam and phishing attempts to more advanced threats like ransomware

the results

more than 200,000 data violations were blocked within the first two months of deployment, avoiding significant financial exposure in risk

the client experienced a 34% reduction in sensitive data movement when employees were encouraged to re-evaluate via pop-ups

the client IT department experienced substantial fewer false positives, allowing for an enhanced focus by the security team on the truly risky activities
