Legato Security maintains a security operations center (SOC) staffed 24/7/365 by a team of experienced security analysts and a SOC manager. The Legato SOC is designed to monitor client data and network traffic, and if needed, actively mitigate security events. Prior to implementing the Haivision video wall solution, the Legato SOC utilized a series of independent monitors mounted to the wall.
“It was frustratingly slow and tedious to display the needed information in our previous setup,’’ explained Jesse Stoltz, Security Operations Center Manager, Legato Security. “As a result, it limited our ability to quickly and actively work on behalf of our customers.” With visual monitoring delays and lack of transparency needed to address threats to client data, Legato Security could not risk the negative impact on their delivery of services and client satisfaction.
Realizing the critical need for an advanced visual collaboration solution, Legato Security chose Haivision to customize and install a video wall solution that would fit their SOC needs, scale as the company grows, and enhance information security monitoring for their clients.
“We communicated the dimensions of our space and worked with Haivision in an iterative process to understand and evaluate our needs until we collectively landed on a tailored solution,” said Tom Boyden, Co-founder and CEO, Legato Security. The focal point of the SOC is a 6×2 video wall which includes 12 55” LCD monitors powered by the Haivision video wall solution software, an Alpha FX Video Processor, CineLink Encoder, and two CineAgent Servers.
This combination of software and hardware is fully integrated with Legato Security’s SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) platforms and web/URL sources to facilitate the capture, selection, control, and display of content. The result is situational awareness, real-time monitoring, and analysis of remote and on-premises security events for Legato Security clients.
Haivision solutions have helped Legato Security standardize its security operations and foster collaboration by collating various data inputs for visualization on a single technology platform. With the Haivision video wall solution software and its intuitive browser-based user interface, SOC analysts value the ability to quickly customize the display in response to dynamic security needs and set up alerts for tracking of security events. Ease-of-use eliminates the need for programming or extensive training and creates a smooth onboarding process for new analysts.
