Effective threat prevention
Soon after the partnership formed, a
prospect asked Barnett for help after being hit with a CryptoLocker-
style ransomware attack. The LUZ team immediately deployed FireEye
Network Security and swiftly mitigated the attack; showing instant
value to the executives who were distressed by the breach.
LUZ enjoys the ability to deploy the
FireEye solutions remotely and expeditiously, especially when a new
client is under threat. "Our security experts can immediately
leverage the intelligence from FireEye to understand how the intruders
are exploiting legacy weaknesses," explained Barnett. "This
is critical to blocking and eradicating the intruders before they can
do any damage."
He continued, "We had a healthcare
account that was the target of an email- based attack and we used
FireEye as a Service (FaaS) in combination with FireEye Email Security
and Network Security to put the right protection in place and stop the
ransomware from deploying. The FireEye solutions don’t require weeks
and weeks of consulting to implement, and the speed at which we can
operate and mitigate risk is a very important differentiator for us."
At another client, LUZ leveraged the
out-of-the-box capabilities of FireEye Endpoint Security to identify
an infected server that had eluded detection for two years!
More recently, LUZ took on a new account
that had outgrown its legacy, non-FireEye IPS and was experiencing a
lack of bandwidth. The LUZ staff immediately implemented FireEye Cloud
MVX and within a couple of hours, it was securing the gap. Barnett
recounted, "Cloud MVX immediately protected the company and gave
us the time to architect a completely new security environment."
