Reaping the Benefits of Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation at Pioneer Investments         

WhatWorks is a user-to-user program at the SANS Institute in which security managers who have implemented effective internet security technologies tell why they deployed it, how it works, how it improves security, what problems they faced and what lessons they learned.

SANS SummarySANS WhatWorks Pioneer Investments

A forward thinking security team responsible for operations and compliance was searching for a network security solution that would provide intelligence across users, devices and applications, enforce granular policy control, and enable control interoperability. The network security solution they implemented from ForeScout allowed them to gain visibility and apply specific policies at both the client and network levels, enhance control integration among different tools, and reduce costs by saving man hours in terms of issue prevention, awareness and response. They were able to demonstrate an immediate return on investment. “Phenomenal” interoperability and technical support was an added bonus.

Ken Pfeil, the CISO at Pioneer Investments responsible for global security operations and compliance was interviewed.
