Digital transformation was helping organisations to drive greater business agility and profits even before the pandemic. But the past few months have highlighted just how important cloud-based technologies can be to business success. Such investments, however, also require a keen focus on cybersecurity.
Carbery Group CIO Anthony O’Callaghan was well aware of this as he developed a strategy for growth built on comprehensive protection of his firm’s digital assets. That’s where Trend Micro came in.
A significant stack
Digital transformation offers firms like the Cork-based global nutrition and dairy company fantastic opportunities to get closer to customers and streamline internal processes. But building out cloud-based infrastructure also expands the digital attack surface. O’Callaghan’s efforts were further complicated by the fact that Carbery Group’s 750 staff are dispersed across 10 global locations, including the UK, Italy, US, Brazil, and Thailand.
He was therefore looking for a proven provider that could offer end-to-end protection across cloud, network and endpoint layers, while taking the strain off a fairly small in-house IT team. The result was investments in a “significant stack” of offerings:
Apex One for endpoint protection through a single agent.
Cloud App Security for online email (Office 365/Gmail) and collaboration security
Deep Discovery Inspector for advanced network security.
Trend Micro Cloud One – Workload Protection to secure data centres, cloud, and containers.
Managed XDR (MDR) for outsourced threat detection and response.
Up and running
To get the most out of the products, including round-the-clock, ongoing security assessments and recommendations, O’Callaghan also chose our Premium Support Program (PSP). The combined value of Trend Micro’s decades of expertise in cybersecurity and feature-rich product set has delivered Carbery Group exactly what it needed. That is: peace-of-mind that any new digital growth initiatives can accelerate to top speed without impacting cyber risk levels.
