Increased Operational Efficiency Across Security for a Tech Company by Leveraging SpendEdge’s IT Risk Management Services

May 3, 2019

The Business Problem

A leading tech company in the United States found themselves compromised by cybercriminals entering through a third party in the supply chain despite having a robust cybersecurity control system.  The company lacked visibility into the security practices implemented by third parties and continued sharing sensitive information with them. This restricted them to

  • Shift their security program to Cloud and DevOps teams.
  • Decrease the entry points of malicious actors and made them more vulnerable to DDoS attacks.

The increasing need to integrate security practices within the DevOps process compelled the client to engage with SpendEdge and leverage their IT risk management solutions and formulate DevSecOps.
