Challenge

Without the option to build their own SOC (Security Operations Center), Greenleaf was forced to manually comb through potential threats.

Solution

Through Blumira, Greenleaf Trust saw the opportunity to cut through the influx of security notifications. This analysis enables them to prioritize potential vulnerabilities and take action on each one with a click.

We're not up to date on all the different threats out there, but Blumira is in the know.​

Managing Wealth to Managing Security 

“How severe is this vulnerability or that incident? Tell me what to do. Now you’re providing value.” 

Greenleaf Trust is a privately held and managed trust-only bank, focused on managing and sustaining their clients’ wealth from generation to generation. 

One of the pillars of their company culture is Continuous Improvement, so they didn’t hesitate to look for a new solution when they realized their security needs were extending beyond what they could achieve with their SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) tools. 

The Challenge

Without the option to build their own SOC (Security Operations Center), combing through potential threats often fell to employees like Todd A. Tetzlaff, Systems Architect. 

He explains, “Our previous service would send us an alert and we’d have to spend the time and resources to determine, ‘What is this?’” 

CIO Oliver Krings elaborates, “Every solution provider is trying to dazzle me with their tool. It is not about the tool. It’s the analysis piece and the service that comes with it…I don’t have time to kind of figure out how severe is this vulnerability or that incident.” 

The looming question was, “How do I deploy my resources?” 

The Solution

Through Blumira, Greenleaf Trust saw the opportunity to cut through the influx of security notifications. “​It’s not just…technology and a reporting and a service that you’re providing, but…what’s the analysis on a higher level.” says Krings. ​

This analysis enables them to prioritize potential vulnerabilities and take action on each one with a click. 

“​I’m pulled in a lot of different directions, so I don’t have the time to really devote to investigating all the threats that are out there…So Blumira really, really offsets that so much for us, which allows me to do all the other things that I need to do in my daily work life,” says Tetzlaff. “Getting started with Blumira was very simple…It was done within a couple of hours, so [it was a] really light load on me.”

Looking Forward

The team at Greenleaf Trust is confidently protecting their company security without taking the focus off of their clients. 

“If you deal with compliance or regulators or security…you will always be behind because…technology evolves so fast,” says Krings. 

Tetzlaff agrees, “We’re not up to date on all the different threats out there, but Blumira is in the know.​”

Traditional SIEMS require a team of security resources, with Blumira’s automated threat detection and response you don’t have to be a security expert to be secure.
