After experiencing two security incidents over a several-month period, insurance carrier Warrior Invictus Holding Co., Inc. recognized the need for a more strategic cybersecurity approach. The company hired its first CIO and upgraded its network, choosing the Fortinet Security Fabric to secure its new infrastructure. Working through Fortinet Partner Fiber Solution Consulting, Warrior Invictus deployed FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), activating the SD-WAN functionality as well as a variety of security features. The company also deployed other elements of the Security Fabric, including wireless connectivity, endpoint security, mail security, and sandbox analysis.
The company realized tangible benefits from the deployment. The efficiency of the Security Fabric’s integrated architecture enabled the team to cover cybersecurity function with just two additional headcount when an earlier assessment had recommended six—a savings of $500,000 per year. The team also reclaimed 40,000 staff hours and 150,000 provider network hours by eliminating frequent downtime.
