Audits, penetration tests, and self-assessments had convinced the Senior Information Security Architect at Erie Insurance that Erie needed better situational awareness to speed up detection, response and resolution of cyber-threats. Erie focused on tools that could be shared by the security group and the network operations group, to increase collaboration and coordination of efforts. After evaluating several products, Erie chose Cisco Stealthwatch and was able to document improvement in security metrics, including more effective coverage and implementation of the CIS Critical Security Controls.
