StepStone, a leading digital recruitment platform, was faced with the challenge of ensuring the security of highly sensitive personal information of jobseekers worldwide. As a rapidly expanding business with a growing presence in the U.S. and plans to enter new markets, StepStone was increasingly vulnerable to sophisticated and numerous cyberattacks. The company's existing antivirus products were no longer sufficient to protect against these threats. StepStone's platform delivers over 100 million job applications per year to over 150,000 employers, averaging three million page views and one million site visits in a typical month. The company needed a robust security solution that could effectively protect endpoints, which were identified as typical ingress paths for cyber threats.

StepStone chose CrowdStrike for its comprehensive and easy-to-use solution set. CrowdStrike offered a single, unified dashboard, next-generation antivirus protection, and a cloud-based solution, which proved to be a particularly important asset during the pandemic lockdown. StepStone deployed the suite of CrowdStrike solutions to 3,600 client and server endpoints across the business. CrowdStrike's heuristic approach, which looks at behavior as well as known threats, was a key factor in StepStone's decision. The company also leveraged CrowdStrike's ability to easily integrate with other security tools and related functions to deploy Falcon Firewall Management and Falcon Device Control to manage USB devices. The next phase will see StepStone deploying CrowdStrike Falcon Spotlight to streamline vulnerability management across their enterprise.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
