BMC Case Study
BMC Software Uses ThreatX to Protect its Portfolio of Apps & Websites Across a Multi-Cloud Environment
BMC Software helps over 10,000 customers with hundreds of software products to help solve complex IT problems. These products are increasingly being offered as Software-as-a-Service delivered from numerous cloud hosting services, which means that nearly every customer has a web presence into various BMC software solutions.
With some of the largest enterprises in the world running mission-critical applications on their cloud services, a top priority is to ensure that these web applications and services are protected from external threats and attacks. Historically, they struggled to:
- Support a multi-cloud initiative for BMC’s high-volume applications
- Protect the brand and sensitive information by securing external facing applications and API integrations
- Support rapid deployment and validation of WAF configurations with minimal application downtime
“My team very much needed a standardized, best-in-class solution that could scale and work everywhere.” - Joel Bruesch, Senior Director of Information Security at BMC
BMC was attracted to the ThreatX SaaS-based Web Application Firewall for its threat monitoring and ability to automatically identify and block malicious and suspicious behavior in a multi-cloud world.
After a PoC of the ThreatX WAF, the ThreatX engineers worked closely with the BMC Security Operations Center (SOC) team to configure the solution. They still work together on a weekly basis.Learn More in the Full Case Study
