See how we helped ensure Sterling Bank achieve complete visibility to identify and investigate network security attacks.
Client:Sterling Bank Nigeria
Project Title:RSA Advanced SOC Implementation
Sterling Bank Plc constantly needed to adapt to stay in front of attackers and the latest threats, which over the past few years had become more difficult. Attackers were becoming more knowledgeable and were making use of sophisticated and highly targeted techniques to infiltrate organizations – with a target focus on financial institutions. These attackers generally would spend significant resources performing reconnaissance to learn about the security weaknesses of the bank and develop techniques specifically to bypass the security systems in use.
The result was that the bank’s current install base of monitoring tool such as traditional SIEM solutions were failing to meet the organization’s needs in this new age which creates a gap in the bank’s ability to detect known, unknown and advanced threats. This made the bank’s lack of complete visibility put them at a risk of missing attacks that significantly impact their organization.
TigerLogic as a company driven by client centricity had a robust engagement with the Sterling Bank security team. With the understanding of the bank’s challenges, TigerLogic proposed RSA Advanced SOC solution which is an analytics/forensic solution built on top of the existing set of security tools (i.e SIEM, network security and end-point protection).
The proposed solution will focus on the most critical tasks with complete end-to-end incident management in minutes, not hours. The key benefits are that the administrator is able to detect and analyze even the most advanced attacks before they impact the business as well as investigate, prioritize, and remediate incidents with unprecedented precision and speed. All of these functionalities addressed all the customer’s challenges.
The deployment of the solution was carried out jointly by the expert team of RSA and TigerLogic. To improve the effectiveness of the bank’s SOC team and for full utilization of the RSA Advanced SOC solution, the Sterling Bank SOC team was engaged in a week-long Security Operations training by TigerLogic.
