For Dole plc, any downtime will put a spoil on revenue for the food industry leader. Ensuring visibility into the company’s security infrastructure and developing quick responses are crucial components for keeping global operations running smoothly. After Dole transitioned to a cloud-based email provider, it became apparent that the native security controls from the provider were not sufficient compared to Dole’s risk posture. Dole also suffered from a lack of visibility into web logs, application logs, and database logs. Dole implemented FortiMail Cloud for email security, Fortinet’s email security as-a-service. Later, it implemented FortiSIEM (Security Information and Event Management). The additional security layers provide more visibility and help address global security threats.
