The Challenge

Organisations are facing more security challenges today than ever before. Traditional defences are not working, new technologies introduce new risks, and conventional security practices are unsustainable. Human-Operated Ransomware is an advanced attack that represents a serious threat to organisations in all industries that has been very damaging over the last couple of years.

The Response

The team at Ward Solutions, Ekco’s specialist security company, have developed an Extended Detect and Respond (XDR) service built using IBM QRadar. The solution helps you protect, detect and respond against advanced threats like Human-Operated Ransomware. 

This solution was used to build a holistic picture of security for the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. It integrates endpoints, network traffic, security logs, user behaviour, threat intelligence and vulnerability data into a single solution that’s managed by Ward’s Security Operations Centre. This provides a clear picture of the complete estate to deliver advanced protection and detection around the clock.
