Knight Frank's Challenges

There were two main challenges for Knight Frank. Firstly, they needed to find a solution that would give them a centralised control and full visibility of their estate, as they had no understanding of the sophisticated attacks that they were exposed to around the clock. 

Another challenge for Knight Frank was that they needed to meet their customers and other stakeholders’ requirements by attaining the ISO:27001 status.

  • Knight Frank had no visibility across their IT and cloud estate. 
  • Wanted to be less vulnerable to complex attacks. 
  • Needed to further protect sensitive customer data. 
  • Struggled to identify attacks around the clock. 
  • Needed to be compliant with ISO:27001 

Cyberseer's solution

Having worked closely with Knight Frank to understand their specific requirements, Cyberseer deployed an Exabeam SIEM utilising machine learning to surface anomalous behaviour that is then processed through Cyberseer’s ASPECT automation platform enriching, classifying and prioritising events prior to our forensic analysts triaging and reporting 24/7 to Knight Frank. 

The service provides environmental visibility, detection of advanced threats protecting Knight Frank from sophisticated attacks.
