Success Story SPIE Switzerland


SPIE Switzerland Ltd., with around 600 employees, is a subsidiary of the French SPIE Group, a listed technical service provider in the fields of energy, buildings, plants, infrastructures and communications. The business unit SPIE ICS AG (Information Communication Services) is one of the leading ICT service providers in Switzerland and offers a complete portfolio of integrated ICT services. At a total of 6 locations throughout Switzerland, solutions for business processes and business applications are developed in addition to IT consulting, integration and maintenance.


With the introduction of ACD, SPIE ICS AG was able to achieve the highest level of network security. The implementation, including all preliminary work on the customer's side, was straightforward and was completed within a few days. With the Managed Security Service from Allgeier secion, SPIE ICS was able to implement all the planned optimizations in the area of IT security: ACD protects IoT devices and all other components in the corporate network that cannot be monitored by agent-based security solutions.

By using the 24/7 threat hunting tool for proactive early attack detection, the corporate network is now permanently secured and the internal IT team is simultaneously relieved. Those responsible at SPIE ICS were quick to recognize the advantages of Allgeier secion's "Managed Detection and Response Service" (MDR) - and were so convinced as a customer that they are now themselves sales partners for ACD in Switzerland.

Effective IT security solutions today must also include early attack detection. ACD is the link between protection and response that we were missing. We decided very quickly in favor of the solution because we were convinced by the functionality of the tool and we noticed already during the first contact, how much experience and competence Allgeier secion has in the area of Incident Detection and Threat Hunting. There is no comparable product on the market and setting up such a solution ourselves would be an unmanageable mammoth task for SPIE in terms of costs and personnel. ACD is an effective and innovative solution with an excellent price/performance ratio. This is exactly the promise that we also make to our customers.
