My name is Jordan Schroeder, and I'm a rapid seven customer. Before we had Rapid seven. In our environment,
00:10
we had many different processes and many different tools helping us out. One of those was a log aggregator.
00:17
But the problem with the log aggregator alone was simply that we would need to have people who had experienced in the network, including the director of G R. C and the director of I T, looking at the logs on a daily basis, trying to find those anomalies, those things that
00:34
were successes but weren't supposed to be successes. It's easy to alert on errors and problems, but it's not so easy to alert on things that you don't expect.
00:44
So when I heard about Rapid seven's Inside I. D. Our product, I immediately became interested. I'm very familiar with Rapid seven, as a company has been using their other products. But having that expertise in a tool that could identify user behavior anomalies was something is very interested in.
01:03
So I contacted them. They set up a demo for my environment,
01:08
and the demo set up was very quick. There was almost no tuning at all, and within an hour after turning inside i. D. Are on
01:18
my company was getting high value, very interesting, very useful alerts almost immediately.
01:25
And that was that was a very effective demo for my company and my team
01:30
because after a week and we had tested out the various capabilities of the tool on whether or not we were going to get full coverage, and we're going to see everything
01:38
by the end of the week, the director of G. R. C and the director of I T simply stopped looking at the logs because they didn't feel they needed to anymore.
01:46
Inside, I. D. R. Has freed up those four people to do their jobs and do the rest of their work. While we have the condensed knowledge and wisdom of Rapid seven in a service that looks through our logs 24 7 and provides us what we need to do to do our job and to protect both ourselves, our clients
02:06
and our client's data.
