Forster first became acquainted with the
Adelaide-based managed security services provider (MSSP) Operational
Systems (OpSys) when she met with its CEO, Matt Fabri, to describe the
support DTC could offer Fabri’s company.
Because OpSys acts as an extended IT
department for its customers, the conversation expanded to embrace the
services that might be pertinent to DTC, including the provision of
data security solutions capable of providing governmental and
Forster learned that OpSys leverages
FireEye Helix - an innovative intelligence-led platform that
simplifies, integrates, and automates a company’s IT security
operations. Helix protects the network, endpoint and email threat
vectors, as well as providing visibility into existing third-party
security solutions. Helix encompasses FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence to
deliver deep, rich, contextual information about potential threats.
FireEye Helix is a unified security
experience that enables businesses to stop more threats while reducing
the operational costs of security. It seamlessly integrates and
improves security for any kind of organization.
Forster realized that OpSys and FireEye
Helix would provide tangible benefits to DTC. “A big attraction for me
was the constant monitoring of all of the activities that are
happening in our environment and that this occurs from the endpoint
and through to the system level. The end-to-end protection is really
appealing,” Forster recounted.
She emphasized, “In the past, very few
organizations could ever achieve Fortune 50-grade security. One of the
really compelling things about the FireEye Helix solution is that by
using Helix, companies such as OpSys can now make this level of
protection a reality for businesses like DTC.”
