Brad Arkin

COMPANY WHERE WON: Adobe Systems Inc.


Digital media software and marketing company Adobe needed to implement a highly scalable, highly available host-based intrusion detection and system monitoring system to shorten the time it takes operations and engineering teams to detect vulnerabilities, anomalies and breaches.

In 2014, Adobe implemented a software-defined security platform for centralized monitoring of system level changes and network events for its marketing cloud platform. The platform gives its teams improved insight into the various marketing clouds’ products and services, helps network operations automate security controls and ensures compliance with internal security rules. The platform also alerts network operations of anomalous activity, non-compliance with security controls and rules, or other suspicious activities. Today the platform monitors more than 35,000 systems on multiple operating systems.
