 Enables an Expanding and Cohesive Multi-Cloud Security and Compliance Strategy - IoT ONE Case Study
The Challenge

Qlik, like many other enterprises, is expanding its cloud footprint and knew it would benefit from a cohesive, enterprise-level cloud security strategy. Because many parts of the organization, including the Research and Development (R&D) and Security teams, were already using the cloud, they understood that they needed to implement holistic guidance to ensure that the company's cloud resources and data therein were adequately protected.

Knowing that they needed to maintain consistent control of their cloud environments, Qlik brought on board a Cloud Architect to expand their Cloud team. Their initial goal was to ensure the security of their existing cloud environments, which consisted mostly of AWS accounts. As Qlik continues its growth as a software and services (SaaS) technology provider, which has driven expanded use of cloud providers like Azure and Google Cloud Platform, the Cloud team has also been looking to rapidly expand its cloud security best practices into these new environments.

As one of many companies in today's highly competitive analytics and business intelligence industry, Qlik's goal was to enable their employees across the relevant business units to do as much as they could through self-service access to the cloud, as safely as possible. Specifically, they wanted their R&D team to innovate and their Sales team to sell, all while remaining secure, minimizing risk, and maximizing efficiency.

The Solution

The R&D team was the first business unit at Qlik to investigate InsightCloudSec as a potential cloud security solution. They soon after introduced InsightCloudSec to the Security and Cloud teams for consideration. After the InsightCloudSec Sales team offered a detailed demonstration of the platform's key capabilities and features, including unified visibility and monitoring, automation and real-time remediation, and its extensibility, the Qlik teams were confident that InsightCloudSec would be able to provide the secure guardrails they were seeking.

For Qlik, this was a critical step toward fulfilling their ultimate goal of empowering employees to embrace the self-service nature of the cloud so they can innovate without creating a security risk.
