THE CUSTOMER

Insight Data Solutions (IDS) is an Australia-based technology business that provides property valuation data and solutions through a unique product suite. IDS prides itself on providing accurate data at speed, and uses the AWS cloud platform to achieve that goal.

THE CHALLENGE 

IDS's cross-functional IT team is tasked with ensuring the security of client data. Yet as IDS grew, AWS’s native offerings, which are cumbersome to configure and maintain, really started to impact the team’s capacity. Increasingly, IDS found it difficult to get accurate — and crucial — insights into the business’s cloud security posture.

THE OUTCOMES

 

Since ARGOS is a fully managed SaaS solution, IDS didn’t need to deploy or change its infrastructure in order to use the service. In fact, ARGOS:

  • onboarded IDS in minutes, which delivered immediate value to the company

  • rapidly developed several new features to address IDS cloud security concerns

  • provided a simple, yet powerful dashboard which is easy to use, and has improved insights into the IDS cloud environments’ security posture

  • integrated effortlessly with existing processes and tools, which increased visibility and improved the IT team’s efficiency by 30%.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“Here at IDS we use ARGOS  to increase our confidence in our cloud security. The onboarding process took just minutes and we were immediately able to get valuable insight into our AWS accounts. Since then they have expanded their range of AWS detections and tooling, going into more depth than what one finds in native AWS offerings. Any misconfiguration of any AWS resource almost instantly results in an alert being sent to Slack where our engineers can discuss and remediate the problem. Knowing that ARGOS has our back lets us sleep easy at night.”
