Benefits of partnering with Expel
- Immediate time to value
- Rapid response and investigation by an expert SOC
- Time saved from sifting through alerts
- 24×7 monitoring without adding additional staff
“The immediate value of seeing our data and alerts in Expel WorkbenchTM in a matter of hours, as well as Expel being able to integrate via API (instead of installing agents) were pivotal points for us,” said Lefler. “It’s just allowed us to focus on growing our infrastructure to support our strategic business goals.”
Since partnering with Expel, FIA Tech saw that over 40 percent of its alerts were happening after business hours, according to the Alert Analysis dashboard in Workbench. To make sure that his team could work seamlessly with Expel’s SOC — even at late hours — Lefler spun up some 2am testing.
The test was a success. Lefler found that “Expel’s remediation recommendations allowed us to make better decisions faster, especially at 2am.”
Through the rapid monitoring, investigation, and response FIA Tech gets with Expel, Lefler estimates that FIA Tech is saving at least 40 work hours per week previously spent sifting through alerts. This has allowed the team to concentrate on other projects and helped to reduce team fatigue.
“We put an incredible amount of trust in Expel to go through all of the alerts we receive so we no longer have to worry at the end of every week about trying to track them all down,” he said.
