This international nonprofit had a growing problem. The number of people around the world who needed their vital humanitarian services was growing. Also growing was their security problems. Not only did they have a sprawling international enterprise, but the nature of their work, humanitarian aid in some of the world’s most turbulent areas, was a frequent target of attacks.
This client had experienced numerous data breaches as well as extended downtime due to hacking. When ransomware began propagating through the network from a foreign source, they knew they had to do something. These attacks were jeopardizing their mission and making vulnerable people more vulnerable.

Anitian provided round-the-clock monitoring of the client’s environment and management of security controls such as endpoint, NGFW, WAF, secure DNS, and more.
