ESP @ Work: Transforming a Consumer Goods Company with Security in the Cloud

“We want to strive to be a technology company, not just a [household products] company” – Director of DevOps at The Consumer Goods Company.

Customer Profile

American consumer goods company that emphasizes non-toxic household products to supply the marketplace for ethical consumerism. As a brand, they aim for savvy style, sustainability and extraordinary service and convenience with a passion for social goodness. Recently valued at $1.7 billion.

Problem

As the their AWS implementation and team matured, the Consumer Goods Company began looking for tools that could help them get to the next level. One area of focus was maturing their security processes. They reached a point where their environments were built well and teams were in place, and realized they need the proper tools to make their teams successful.

Solution

What really drew them to Evident Security Platform (ESP) particularly was the ability to customize the control checks, alerts, suppressions and integrations. The Consumer Goods Company sees a lot of potential in being able to create their own control checks both inclusive of security as well as outside of the box. The DevOps team loved ESP’s passive data collection approach and the fact that ESP is agentless and can provide alerts and integrations that help them be secure without getting in their way. Their DevOps team was extremely supportive of the move to use ESP.

Results

ESP helped the Consumer Goods Company fulfill their part of the AWS shared services model and achieve compliance with CIS AWS Security best practices, by automating the exposure and remediation of vulnerabilities in AWS. ESP also offered the flexibility to develop custom signatures to be alerted on Consumer Goods Company specific risks.
