Seeking an IR Partner with Deep Cloud Expertise
The CISO knew that their organization needed to possess the ability to thoroughly investigate breaches, and they also needed a sound methodology to recover quickly and effectively from critical incidents. They sought out a provider who could be a true partner, extending their capabilities and providing the confidence needed to face mounting cyber risks.
Initially they sought out an IR provider to partner with in a traditional retainer model. However, after considerable research, they didn't feel that the vendors they spoke with were fit-for-purpose or that the providers understood their organization's unique cloud and security requirements well enough to support them. They needed a different kind of IR partner.
Mitiga's IR2 Delivers Advanced Cloud Investigation Abilities
During his continued research, the CISO learned about Mitiga‘s proactive SaaS-based approach and quickly became a subscriber. The on-boarding process included understanding and mapping their environments, identifying the assets that were most mission critical to their business, and ensuring the right forensic data was being collected on a continuing basis and analyzed.
A Complete Forensic Picture to Speed Breach Response
Because IR2 ingested forensics data from across the company's cloud and SaaS environments, they finally possessed a single, complete picture of the data required for breach investigations, including the relevant logs, configuration snap shots, historical snapshots, and more. This increased visibility and new source of insights dramatically accelerated incident investigations. This same data also became the foundation for IR drills and exercises, helping to elevate the security team's cloud incident response skill sets, as well their breach readiness.
