Use Case: Enhanced Workflow Through Automation

Powerful big data analytics are only as valuable as your ability to take action. MetaGrid’s workflow automation engine enables organizations to take action automatically on a global scale, controlling any system from which it can gather data.

Challenge:

A global gaming company with tens of thousands of servers wanted to perform automated penetration testing in response to attempted attacks on their systems to see if those attacks had succeeded. The company’s current methodology involved manual tests in response to attacks, often lagging behind the threat by months.

Solutions Deployed:

  • MetaGrid™
  • MetaGrid Autonomics

Result:

With MetaGrid, the company:

  • Automated penetration testing, detecting anomalous events and using those to trigger audits
  • Saved thousands of man hours preparing and managing tests
  • Collapsed the potential exposure window from months to minutes
