Challenge

A key U.S. federal government agency had information siloed between the agency’s headquarters, security operations center, and various field locations. This made it challenging to enforce security and IT policies across a decentralized network and led to numerous unknown, unmanaged, and vulnerable Internet Assets.

Solution

The agency worked with Expanse to define its global inventory of Internet Assets. It identified numerous exposures (including unprotected FTP and Telnet instances) and remediated them before attackers could exploit them. The agency now uses the Expanse Internet Operations Management Platform on an ongoing basis to discover, monitor, and track Internet Assets across all agency locations.
