The Challenge

Tata BlueScope Steel had advanced security protocols in place to address sophisticated threats. However, we believed that taking our eyes off the security posture was not an option, and a proactive approach to security was required. Our IT team had the necessary skills to manage security deployment but to continuously monitor the security installations qualified security professionals, who could act as an extension of our team, to deliver proactive SOC services were required.

The organization had also experienced multiple phishing incidents and addressing them was a key challenge. The pandemic meant that a large part of our workforce was working remotely, and this workforce was susceptible to attacks. Tata BlueScope wanted to extend security to employees working remotely and address the risk from zero-day attacks.

Tata BlueScope Steel

About The Customer

Tata BlueScope Steel is a confluence of two global players in the steel industry namely Tata Steel and BlueScope Steel, Australia. The company offers best-in-class products including coated steel, steel building solutions, and related building products across Asia pacific region. The company wanted to expand visibility within its network and quickly identify security gaps, and incidents and remediate them. The organization was also aware that threats were becoming even more sophisticated and needed to be neutralized before they actively targeted Tata BlueScope Steel’s IT ecosystem.

The Solution

The Sophos partner took through the defining features of Sophos Intercept X Advanced with XDR and MTR Standard and emphasized the need to move from the existing on-premise Sophos Endpoint solution to a cloud solution. The partner helped smoothen the implementation process with a thorough knowledge transfer to the team.

A combination of automated, lead-driven, and leadless threat hunting ensures no threat passes below the radar, and all threats are neutralized before they pose a problem. With lead-driven threat hunting, a manual, human-led identification and investigation process identifies new attacker behavior that is then addressed by the MTR ops team. Lead-less threat hunting combines threat intelligence, data science, and knowledge of attacker behavior with what’s known about Tata BlueScope Steel’s environment to anticipate new attacker behavior.
