Head of Digital Security and Resilience, Brewin Dolphin PLC
In late 2018, Brewin Dolphin embarked on a major transformation of its network services. Over the next 3 years it replaced legacy network equipment and services across more than 40 locations.
As part of this transformation, the firm's Digital Security & Resilience team, led by Neil Beattie, launched an initiative to identify a network monitoring solution that would provide the Network and Security teams with comprehensive insight on activity across the evolving technology environment.
Following two rounds of RFP evaluations to assess available options, Neil and his team determined that ExtraHop offered the best set of solutions to meet Brewin Dolphin's network and security requirements. He recalled, "ExtraHop goes much deeper than the typical transactional reporting of traffic by analyzing actual behaviours occurring across the network and on endpoints."
ExtraHop can collect data and strip out all of what Neil calls the "rubbish" information. Using full stream analysis, traffic decryption, and machine learning, ExtraHop surfaces only meaningful detections with low false positives and correlated metrics and forensic details that can then be monitored and reviewed through the unified interface.
As soon as ExtraHop was deployed, Neil knew he made a good choice when the platform detected activities resulting from a penetration test that was being conducted at the same time. "We were immediately able to see events occurring that we previously had limited visibility into," recounted Neil.
