Yager Development GmbH is a renowned developer of computer and video games. The company was founded in 1999 by a group of enthusiastic game developers. As early as 2003, the studio's debut game, entitled "Yager", was released and won international awards for its successful technical implementation. Yager has since released other successful titles, such as "Spec Ops: The Line". The third-person shooter won awards in five categories at the German Developer Awards. In 2020, the Chinese online group Tencent acquired a minority stake in Yager Development GmbH. The company now employs around 140 people and is based in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Those responsible at Yager quickly recognized the advantages of Allgeier secion's "Managed Detection and Response Service" (MDR) and decided to implement early attack detection using ACD. "The implementation, including all preliminary work on our side - for example, the installation of the sensors provided - was completed within two days. The big advantage of the solution for us is that we have virtually nothing to do with it in our day-to-day business and effective network protection is guaranteed from day one," says Golka. By using ACD, Yager Development has achieved the highest level of network security, while at the same time being able to reduce the workload on its internal IT team.
"ACD's proactive approach is coherent and convinced us very quickly. The implementation was straightforward and fast. Communication with the IT security consultants from Allgeier secion was also clear and professional at all times. We don't have to allocate any resources to ACD during ongoing operations. The system runs and is monitored by Allgeier secion. We only keep an eye on the fact that the hardware supplied is available at all times in a fail-safe manner. ACD helps us in the worst case, a successful cyberattack, to react early enough to minimize potential damage. I still believe that it was a good decision to place this part of IT security in expert hands. ACD is a worthwhile investment for us in our own security, which I can only highly recommend to other companies."
