  • Real-Time Vulnerability Assessment for Rapid Response to Security Threats
    Real-Time Vulnerability Assessment for Rapid Response to Security Threats Bill Lewis, Dir. of IT, State Garden, Erick Ingleby, PM. Forescout & Jorhn Schimelpfenig, Sr. Business Dev. Manager, Rapid7 Recorded: Sep 28 2016 40 mins
    State Garden, a top producer of salad greens in the northeastern U.S., had two serious cybersecurity issues that needed to be addressed:

    1.) Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints on the company’s network were undetectable.
    2.) Vulnerability Assessment (VA) scans were missing mobile Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) systems that come and go from the network.

    Both issues were creating an attack surface that was increasingly harder to monitor and protect.

    Billy Lewis, State Garden Director of IT, will share the challenges he faced to:
    •Maximize efficiency of limited IT security resources and personnel
    •Protect company assets from unauthorized or non-compliant devices connecting to the network
    •Automate endpoint compliance and remediation
    •Orchestrate multisystem security

    In addition, Lewis will explain the role the ForeScout-Rapid7 solution played in reducing the attack surface and accelerating remediation on State Garden’s network.
