European acquisitions drive the need for greater visibility into cyber asset landscape across different markets
BOSTON — September 28, 2022 — Noetic Cyber, an innovator in Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM), today announced that Gamma has selected the Noetic platform to deliver greater visibility into their cybersecurity posture across core European markets to help them identify security gaps and better understand their cyber risk.
Gamma is a leading provider of Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) into the UK and European markets and has grown via acquisition in Spain, Germany and the Benelux region over the past two years. As a telecommunications provider, Gamma ensures that it is following best practices in understanding cybersecurity threats, and its core infrastructure and operations are certified under ISO 27001 for security.
As a result of the recent acquisitions, the Gamma security team now had a significantly expanded set of users, networks, devices and applications in different regulatory markets. The challenge faced by the team was to gain an accurate understanding of all relevant assets in each of these different markets, their current cybersecurity posture and any possible impact to the wider business. As companies grow through merger and acquisition, they need to reconcile different technologies, security processes and risk exposure with the acquired organization. Security leaders need to quickly understand what cyber risks they are inheriting and how best to align it with overall group best practice. They also need to achieve this in a non-intrusive way that will not have an impact on normal business operations or require any significant changes to each country’s security tooling or infrastructure.
To give them the visibility and cyber insights they needed, the Gamma team selected the Noetic Continuous Cyber Asset Management and Controls platform as the cornerstone of their cyber asset management strategy. As the Noetic platform ingests and correlates asset information from Gamma’s existing infrastructure through API integrations, it is non-disruptive to Gamma’s technology footprint and business operations, while giving the security team unparalleled insight into the current cyber resilience of all assets across the business, including potential security coverage gaps.
With the Noetic solution, Gamma can leverage their different security investments in each individual market, as the platform supports a range of endpoint security, vulnerability assessment, mobile device management, cloud infrastructure platforms and many other common security, DevOps and IT management tools. Noetic also helps Gamma to measure the efficacy of their existing security tooling, providing security leadership with insights into coverage and effectiveness which then guides budgeting and future investment.
By aggregating and correlating asset information across multiple data sources, Noetic can deliver a continuously updated 360 degree view of Gamma’s entire estate, showing all assets across on-premises and cloud workloads, their current security posture, and the cyber relationships between them. With this information, the Gamma team can now make security decisions based on a better understanding of their current state, driven by important business context.
“As Gamma continues to grow internationally, it is critical that we have the right visibility into the effectiveness of our security controls across all parts of the business. We needed an overall view of cyber risk across the group, while supporting our regions with their specific needs for visibility and reporting across very different environments. The Noetic solution can deliver us this flexibility and is helping us to quantify our cyber risk across our entire cyber estate.”Amy Lemberger, Group Risk and Governance Director at Gamma.
“We’re delighted that Gamma has selected us to support their cybersecurity posture initiative across Europe,” said Paul Ayers, CEO and co-founder, Noetic Cyber, “The need to manage different security infrastructures across group companies in different counties is a complex challenge that is well suited to the flexibility and extensibility provided by the Noetic platform.”
The Gamma team are currently deploying the Noetic platform in the German market, with future adoption planned later in the year for Spain and The Benelux region. For more information on the Noetic platform, please visit https://noeticcyber.com/platform/.
