About the client

The client is a multinational energy company engaged in producing natural gas liquids and petrochemicals. The company has operations in multiple locations around the world.

Colonial Pipeline in 2021 and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict escalated the client’s concern about their cybersecurity and risk posture. They wanted to ensure that they had the necessary safeguards in place to protect their organization.

The client's challenge

The client’s goal was to improve the resilience in their security architecture to respond to potential cyber-attacks and mitigate them. In addition, they experienced security staff attrition and were worried about having the necessary expertise in-house to effectively monitor their environment and respond to any security incident.

The client looked for a managed cybersecurity partner to help them make the shift to a cloud-native security stack using Microsoft Sentinel and Defender and provide support with advanced Managed Extended Detection & Response (XDR) cybersecurity services.

Further Information

The full set of security services includes Managed XDR, threat intelligence, threat hunting, managed EDR, vulnerability management and other advanced security services.

The client chose CyberProof because of its previous experience having transformed the largest, most complex Azure Sentinel deployment to date, and the direct reference from that client. The deal took less than one month to close partially due to the Russia-Ukrainian conflict, which rapidly elevated the risk profile of the energy industry in general. A highlight of this project was the collaboration between the CyberProof and Microsoft Azure teams, which was key to meeting all the client’s requirements.
