The number of cyberattacks on organizations is rising rapidly. Educational institutions are also affected. Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FHV) wanted to supplement its already established preventive security measures with a proactive early warning system and chose ACD - the effective, resource-saving solution for early attack detection.

Weitzer Parkett - one of Europe's leading parquet manufacturers - wanted to effectively and permanently strengthen its own IT security within the company. In order to respond to the acutely increased threat situation, the endpoint security used was to be supplemented by a solution that would enable proactive monitoring of all systems in the network. After extensive research, those responsible decided to use Allgeier secion's lean but effective Active Cyber Defense (ACD) service instead of the initially considered SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solution - just in time to nip a Log4j attack in the bud.

In order to close potential IT security gaps, sensitize its own employees and be prepared for the worst case scenario, the Versorgungswerk der Zahnärztekammer Berlin commissioned Allgeier secion with a comprehensive, three-part IT security audit. In addition to a black box and a social engineering audit, the incident response readiness strategy was also put to the test.

As an inclusive institution, Elbe-Werkstätten has an increased security risk when it comes to IT security. In addition to already existing, established security solutions, further measures in the area of "Managed Protection and Response" (MDR) should therefore be added. The condition: It had to work simply, be affordable and also be implementable with a small team. After some research, those responsible decided on Allgeier secion's lean but effective Active Cyber Defense (ACD) service instead of their own SIEM solution (Security Information and Event Management), which they had initially considered.

After a successful cyberattack, the IT systems and subsequently parts of the business processes of Martin Baur GmbH came to a temporary standstill. The medium-sized company from the district of Biberach then brought Allgeier secion on board as an external IT security expert in order to have its own IT protection measures reviewed and to secure itself even better for the future.

IT security is a top priority at Gartner KG, one of Europe's leading logistics service providers. The company's project managers were looking for a service provider who could bring the test quality and thus also the resilience of the IT infrastructure to the next level. They found the right sparring partner in secion.
