Hexagon MDR Case Study: Consolidating Security Operations with 24/7 Global


In this video, Steve Lorimer, Group Privacy & Information Security Officer at Hexagon, explains why they chose eSentire to help them consolidate their security tools, improve visibility across their attack surface, and reduce threat detection gaps in their environment across business units with 24/7 SOC-as-a-Service.

Company Description: Hexagon has over 26,000 employees and is the global leader in digital reality solutions, combining sensor, software, and autonomous technologies. Hexagon enables their customers to harness their data to boost efficiency, productivity, quality, and safety across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, public sector, and mobility applications.

Industry: Software

Security Challenges:

  • Four completely siloed sub-divisions that needed to consolidate with 24/7 SOC support from a provider with standardized security tooling and processes
  • Lack of subject matter expertise in-house so they needed expert-level guidance from a trusted MDR partner to identify and address gaps in their security program
  • Leverage their existing investments in Microsoft E5 and Sentinel to enhance their endpoint and log protection
  • Improve their cybersecurity maturity by leveraging Elite Threat Hunters to stay ahead of the threat landscape
  • Limited resources leaving them unable to monitor the complete attack surface 24/7 or build an internal SOC
  • Meet compliance requirements for 18 different global security certifications including the Essential Eight, Cyber Essentials, NIST, CMMC, DFARS 7012, ISO 27000, & more

eSentire Services Implemented:
