They quickly got to grips with all the different domains, the monitoring, and the limitations. To be frank, our security posture was initially a minefield, so I’m really pleased with the engagement Performanta brought to the task. They are excellent threat hunters.”
Head of Cyber Security Operations,
Global Leading Manufacturing
When a global manufacturing company were confronted with a cyber incident, an urgent response was needed. They turned to Performanta to gain more strength and depth of understanding into both the adversary and the business’s infrastructure.
The company’s Head of Cyber Security Operations said: “At the time, through a series of mergers and acquisitions, we had more than a dozen companies within the group so you can imagine the differences in topology and convention. It was wildly inconsistent and there was very little in the way of standardised practice across the network."
According to the Head of Cyber Ops, Performanta’s senior leadership team enjoy a long-standing reputation in the market. That’s why Lior Arbel was consulted to assist – not just with the incident but for post remedial activities, too.
“It was clear from the start that Performanta knew what to look for,” commented the cyber exec. “They are subject matter experts. They engaged at pace, analysed our environment, and the subsequent onboarding of product and process was managed with minimum fuss and high professionalism.”
The way Performanta went about the task of information gathering and the subsequent areas of key deployment impressed.
“They quickly got to grips with all the different domains, the monitoring, the limitations, and so on. They knew the ecosystem and were able to use that to their advantage and ours, which nobody else could do. To be frank, our security posture was initially a minefield, so I’m really pleased with the engagement Performanta brought to the task. They are excellent threat hunters and excellent all-round professionals.”
The partnership continues, with the business’s cybersecurity and infrastructure problems being tackled one by one. “If there’s a problem, it gets resolved ASAP. The team are always fully available. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.”
