Purchase of VictorOps by
Major UK Government Body
Release Date: 14/11/19.
The decision has been made by a central governmental body in the UK to improve the efficiency of their SOC (Security Operation Centre) by purchasing VictorOps for Splunk through Somerford Associates. Their objective was also to maximise their investment, whilst maintaining a high level of security. VictorOps was their security platform of choice, as it can ensure that all of these goals are met.
Security threats are inevitably a serious matter for Government bodies who hold valuable information on citizens and industries. As any potential attacker could launch an ‘attack’ at any time, members of the SOC required a tool that would alert them of threats outside of office hours. Notifications that appear on their mobile device, for example, allows them, or senior management, to review the severity and urgency of security threats as they occur, allowing for immediate action. What makes VictorOps even more valuable for them, is that it uses the ticketing system that already exists within their infrastructure, and integrates with other pre-existing elements of Splunk.
Due to our in-depth knowledge of both Splunk and the UK Government, Somerford was well-positioned to provide local implementation with the customer’s Splunk instance.
