Axon, a leading self-defense company, operates Evidence.com, a platform that handles a constant flow of digital evidence from various law enforcement and public safety agencies across the globe. The platform is used to manage digital evidence in a secure, scalable, and efficient way, allowing agencies to focus on the use of the data rather than the burden of managing it. Given the highly sensitive and personal nature of this information, security is of paramount importance. However, traditional Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) were not compatible with Axon's modern architecture and couldn't be effectively deployed in production blocking mode. Axon's security team built their own detection rules and evaluated multiple WAF technologies, but were not satisfied with any of the legacy solutions available on the market. They found themselves spending too much of their operational resources maintaining their homegrown web application security solution, which didn’t provide robust blocking capabilities and was only as good as the rules written for it.
About The Customer
Axon is a leading self-defense company that operates Evidence.com, a platform used by thousands of law enforcement agencies across the globe to manage their digital evidence. The platform handles a constant flow of digital evidence, including body cam video, dash cam footage, and other evidence data from the sources in the field. The platform connects technology and people in order to create safer communities. Axon's security and development teams have created a way for agencies to safely transfer this highly sensitive and personal digital evidence to the Evidence.com central management solution.
Axon chose to work with Signal Sciences to implement their next-generation WAF solution. The goal was to help resolve the cumbersome security triaging that the Axon security team experienced and to free up their time to focus on actual attack events and more strategic security initiatives. Signal Sciences provided Axon with a solution that worked “out of the box,” improving visibility and securing their customers’ sensitive data more effectively without compromising operational and business needs. Axon replaced their homegrown WAF solution with the Signal Sciences next-gen WAF solution. The combination of Signal Sciences’ ease of install that both product and security teams could support, along with true security visibility into attack signals that didn’t require configuration or tuning, allowed Axon to achieve its goals of application protection without compromise.

Major Aerospace Company Automates Asset Management
The O&M division of an aerospace and global security company was using spreadsheets to manually track more than 3,000 assets assigned to students and staff. Maintaining audit trails for this high volume of equipment became increasingly time-consuming and challenging. The chore involved knowing precisely what equipment was on hand, what had been issued, its location and the name of the custodial owner of each item. Every aspect of this task was carried owner of each item. Every aspect of this task was carried out by individuals with spreadsheets. Manually documenting the full lifecycle of each asset added to the burden. This included tracking maintenance requirements and records, incidents and damages, repairs, calibrations, depreciation, and end-of-life data.
