As part of its ongoing mission to lend a helping hand to companies and encourage positive change in the world, enterprise security solutions
provider bitsIO donated time to help two companies improve operations during the coronavirus pandemic.
With more people working from home during self-quarantines and shelter-in-place orders, companies are increasingly concerned about the security of their networks. It's important for them to be able to know who is accessing their servers and who is on their network. And, for Central Florida Medical Centers, it is even more critical to be able to ensure the overall safety of the organizational infrastructure.
Donating its services, bitsIO onboarded more data sources for CFMC, allowing the center to process more machine data. Although the center already was a customer for the Splunk security platform, bitsIO was able to maximize its existing Splunk footprint to allow it to monitor the network for security alerts and improper connections. In just one day, bitsIO was able to better safeguard CFMC's critical devices and provide it access to greater log data analytics and better visibility into what is occurring on its network.
We understand how important it is for a medical center to be able to monitor and protect their data especially now, said Suman Gajavelly, CTO at its. For us to be able to do this was just a small way to give back to the medical profession and thank them for all they are doing.
But it didn't end there. bitsIO also donated four days of time to help Benefits Data Trust, a national network that helps individuals apply for benefits that will help them better afford food, shelter, and medical expenses. With such a large amount of sensitive data being entered during such a crucial time, it was imperative to be able to secure it from outside threats.
By upgrading BDT to a multi-tier setup and expanding the data sources that the nonprofit organization was able to process, bitsIO provided BDT with greater insight and protection in the areas of network traffic, threat detection, and authentication. As a final security measure, bitsIO helped improve malware detection and prevention on endpoints.
Both of these initiatives were performed at no charge as part of the Splunk4Good program, which encourages its partners to help drive positive change in the world through volunteer work and giving back. As a Splunk Elite Partner, bitsIO is committed to supporting this initiative by helping its customers and the people it serves to stay safe.
This has been a very challenging time for everyone around the world, said Gajavelly. Being able to do just a few small things to help make their lives easier and make their data more secure is the least we could do.
