Challenge

Despite a multitude of sophisticated security tools, the security team was unable to act to protect the business. Motorola’s new product designs were being leaked to Chinese copycats. Motorola was losing their competitive advantage as competitors beat them to market. In order to bring new products to market, it requires a variety of teams to collaborate and share information. It is impossible to keep a secret when you rely on a complex supply chain that may have long lead times. With social media, a secret can go public in minutes. Motorola found it challenging to control information without slowing down aggressive new-product timelines.

How Cyberhaven’s Dynamic Data Tracing helped

As a SaaS product, Cyberhaven was easy to deploy across endpoints and clouds to provide immediate visibility. Dynamic Data Tracing insights had an immediate impact since they immediately revealed malicious activity. The level of detail provided by Dynamic Data Tracing meant that Motorola could show intent, and it helped to not only identify but remove insider threats quickly. Legal, HR, and Security teams were able to work together more efficiently and effectively.

Results, return on investment, and future plans

Motorola’s return on investment was immediate. The Security team could finally focus on other projects. Prior, they had 3 FTEs focused on insider threats, which they were now able to reduce to a single person looking at reports on a part-time basis. Motorola was able to remove their cumbersome DLP solution, which had not matched the needs of their business processes, and instead rely on the visibility and insights from Dynamic Data Tracing. Cyberhaven had a positive impact not just on the security team but the profitability of Motorola.
