Driving a proactive security posture with FireEye solutions
The State of Missouri’s infrastructure
provides many services to six million citizens, countless businesses,
visitors, and 50,000 employees in over a 100 locations. Data such as
health information, taxes owed, property ownership, and criminal
records make a state environment a lucrative target for threat actors.
Michael Roling, chief information
security officer at the State of Missouri, remembered watching
underprepared states suffering attacks and said, "We saw what a
breach did to the trust between the citizens and the government. The
State of Missouri resolved to not be the next victim."
Shifting the state’s extensive
infrastructure – increasingly accessed by mobile devices and
constantly under attack from spear-phishing emails – to a proactive
security posture would be difficult. Missouri needed a security vendor
capable of defending a statewide network linking tens of thousands of
endpoints. It required a suite of solutions seamlessly integrated to
secure every possible threat vector.
