Managing one of the largest public pension systems in Western Europe, the customer oversees 16 regional pension funds with multiple offices across Germany. Tasked with processing and paying pensions, conducting employer and insurance tax audits, providing participation benefits such as medical rehabilitation and distilling information and advice through various touchpoints, including online, telephone, and in-person consultation locations, their attack surface is extensive.
While the company had a series of checks and balances to ensure compliance and consumer protection, it lacked visibility when it came to dark web threat intelligence to protect its business-critical assets.
The company used numerous cybersecurity processes like SIEM, vulnerability management and threat intelligence for several years and also undertook periodic penetration tests on their web applications. However, a lack of access to crucial information, resulted in a reactive cybersecurity posture. The company needed a solution that could capture real-time intelligence as it happened and before attacks were deployed.
The company first learned about Cybersixgill through its extended detection and response (XDR) provider, Anomali. Following a period of testing and trialing the product, they contacted Cybersixgill and learned about the Investigative Portal.
Cybersixgill provided the company with a product demonstration, during which Cybersixgill found that the company’s information was being sold on the dark web. The company contacted those responsible about the risks in their web applications to mitigate them, working with Cybersixgill to implement an effective threat intelligence program.
Following a seamless integration to Cybersixgill’s Investigative Portal, the company realized continuous improvements in its cybersecurity processes. Today, the company’s security team utilizes the Investigative Portal daily and receives real-time alerts notifying them of any compromised credentials and web applications. “Our relationship with Cybersixgill comes down to partnership and trust; it’s about protecting the organization. Cybersixgill provides information we can’t get from any other source. With Cybersixgill’s insights, we can preemptively stop an attack and understand a threat actor’s method of operation. It’s one of the best solutions I have seen in my security career.” Customer, Global Financial Services.
With Cybersixgill, the company has significantly reduced their manual processes, improving the company’s security posture and operational efficiencies.
