- Use Cases
Jason Loomis, CISO at Mindbody, used to characterize the difficulty of asset management: “You can have a lot of disparate systems managed by disparate teams, and it can be hard to gain a comprehensive view of what’s on your network and what’s running on your network.”
Mindbody needed to solve the challenge of cybersecurity asset management to mitigate the associated security risks, particularly unknown gaps in coverage, and improve incident response times as the team worked to assemble adequate information. Loomis and his team worked to build a Python-based data aggregator that would consolidate all the information he sought into a single point of view. Unfortunately, Loomis noted, “We spent a year and a half building it, and never got it to a place we needed it to be.”
As a global solutions provider, Mindbody is committed to ensuring it has the best possible security; Loomis knew that a hardware and software inventory, (knowing what’s on your network) is a foundational cybersecurity control. His team was introduced to Axonius as a pre-built solution that could provide centralized visibility and data. They could use this information to minimize blind spots and increase response capabilities.
“Axonius, out of the box for a very competitive price point, solved our cybersecurity inventory problem for us,” he shared. “We moved pretty fast with it because of the ease of use... Within a couple of weeks, we had it at 75 percent efficacy.”
Loomis adds, “Axonius is different from other solutions that we looked at. One, the technology was so simple to use and simple to implement. And second, the level of customer service is outstanding.” He goes on, “The customer service we get from Axonius is by far the best customer service of any of our vendors. And we work with top tier vendors across the board in cybersecurity.”
