Maritz, a holding company providing a range of services to Fortune 500 companies, faced a significant challenge in enhancing its security posture to support PCI DSS requirement 6.6. Several of its business units accept credit card information, necessitating annual reporting on PCI DSS compliance. The company decided to implement a web application firewall as an additional layer of security for its PCI environment. However, with numerous business units and applications, each with different technology stacks, Maritz needed a single product that could be deployed across all current and future hosting environments, whether physical or virtual, on-premises or cloud-based. The company had previously used an open-source solution that required extensive manual effort to operate, so they were looking for a solution that offered ease of use, automated blocking, and simple deployment.
About The Customer
Maritz is a holding company that provides a variety of services to Fortune 500 companies and beyond. Its businesses offer market and customer research, customer loyalty programs, sales incentives, employee rewards and recognition programs, and meeting, event, and travel incentive services. The company has multiple business units and applications, each with different technology stacks. Maritz needed a single, easy-to-use security solution that could be deployed across all its current and future hosting environments, whether physical or virtual, on-premises or cloud-based.
Maritz chose to deploy the Fastly Next-Gen WAF, powered by Signal Sciences, initially to 5% of its corporate application footprint. The deployment was so successful that Maritz is now expanding it to cover 90% of total applications across multiple business units. The Signal Sciences solution offered simple deployment, which accelerated adoption across teams and tech stacks. It provided an additional layer of security without impacting legitimate traffic or performance, or requiring changes to complicated firewall rules. The software was deployed directly to the web server, eliminating the need to change traffic flow. Maritz also uses Signal Sciences' dashboards to monitor agent status and identify flagged IPs, which has increased confidence and facilitated deeper security discussions. The solution's support for varied infrastructure used by different business units was another key factor in its successful deployment.

Digital Transformation of Atlanta Grout & Tile: An IoT Case Study
Atlanta Grout & Tile, a Tile, Stone & Grout restoration company based in Woodstock, Georgia, was facing challenges with its traditional business model. Despite steady growth over the years, the company was falling behind the web revolution and missing out on the opportunity to tap into a new consumer base. They were using independent software from different vendors for each of their department information and workforce management. This resulted in a lot of manual work on excel and the need to export/import data between different systems. This not only increased overhead costs but also slowed down their response to clients. The company also had to prepare numerous reports manually and lacked access to customer trends for effective business decision-making.

Revolutionizing Construction Equipment Rental: A Case Study on ProsRent and ENO8
ProsRent, a startup that won the 'Best Financial Opportunity' and 'Best Pitch' at CodeLaunch 2016, aimed to revolutionize the way construction professionals source and rent heavy equipment. In the construction industry, project managers and contractors typically rent heavy equipment from supply companies. However, predicting inventory can be challenging, and finding the required equipment at the right time and place can be a hassle. If the preferred vendor doesn't have the required equipment, it results in wasted time and money in searching for it, often leading to higher costs due to non-preferred rates and increased delivery costs if the vendor is located far from the job site. Suppliers, on the other hand, desired access to a wider base of trusted renters that they didn't have to vet themselves and wanted to offer dynamic rental pricing based on demand and availability in their market. ProsRent's challenge was to produce a minimum viable product that was fast and first to market but also strong enough to engender loyalty and repeat business from the target market.
