IT Manager Robert Osojnik had been searching for an all-comprehensive solution that would raise the level of cyber security and provide management at all levels of the company’s IT system in one place. A solution that would ensure risk reduction and rapid and accurate security incident detection, regardless of where in the data system such an incident might occur.

»We wanted protection that would not only be unwaveringly trustworthy but would also support our efforts to ensure excellence in all areas, from products to everyday business and work with customers,« emphasised Osojnik.

The Solution

The small EKWB team, which provides IT support for global business operations, needs simple and effective tools. “The Cynet 360 platform became fully operational as soon as we installed the agents. Its friendly user interface and control panel allow for easy switching between various options on the platform, additionally simplifying its acquaintance and use”, said Osojnik.

The Cynet 360 platform provides IT security, offering detailed insight into the operation of the company’s IT system, management and full control over security in one place. It’s even more efficient due to its options for setting up specific response processes for individual detected security incidents. Most response processes are automated, and the IT team deals only with the real threats. Our confidence in the solution only increased by the top-quality user support provided by Cynet’s CyOps team, which is available 24 hours a day, all days of the week. As Osojnik says, this makes them like less worried and more prepared for potential threats, regardless of where and when they might happen

Osojnik was thrilled by the Cynet 360 platform and quickly opted for a trial use (POC). He was convinced by the simple and practical instant installation of Cynet 360 agents onto all endpoints in the company’s IT system. The icing on the cake was its capability to control all attack vectors by monitoring the interdependence of files, users, networks and hosts.

“Having a solution that provides us with all-comprehensive security in one place represents a major advantage. No longer do we need to use different and separate security solutions, thus reducing both the scope of work as well as the number of incorrectly detected security events that we would have to deal with,” explained Osojnik

They were further impressed by the quality and accuracy of its security incident detection and pinpointing of unknown threats, as well as by its option of automated incident response and forensic analysis of incidents.
