Monitored Endpoints



About the Company

The customer is a privately-held payroll and compliance provider based in San Francisco, CA (USA). The company provides hiring and payments services for companies hiring international employees and contractors. It offers a central platform for companies to hire employees and independent contractors located remotely. They equip their customers with tools, features, and guidance they need in a single platform to manage cross-border people management.

Challenges Faced by the Customer

This HR Tech company has employees based in over 150 countries. They use multiple SaaS platforms across a robust cloud environment with significant inter-dependencies, spread across multiple AWS regions, and more than 3000 monitored endpoints. They were looking for a single platform to be able to centrally coordinate between multiple security solutions, as well as have the capability to provide 24/7 continuous threat detection and Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) across their infrastructure.


Their expectation from the solution was to not only identify the security threats but also respond quickly and take necessary actions to prevent any impact on their business operations as well as reduce cybersecurity costs.


Lastly, they also faced a challenge in establishing in-house Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) operations in a short time frame, particularly around having resources with the right skill sets and ability to provide round-the-clock coverage.

Selecting the Right Platform

The HR Tech company was already an Observability customer of Coralogix, and Snowbit platform leverages Coralogix’s Streama© technology to provide real-time insights and a comprehensive view of their cloud environment’s security and compliance. They initiated a month-long Proof of Concept (POC) for Snowbit to showcase its capabilities after which the customer decided to choose this solution.
