Problem A subsidiary of the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) was facing an increasing stream of requests for documentation, certifications, and penetration test results from their customers in the natural gas and energy sectors. LocusView’s IT team wanted to answer each request for security information with a consistent package of responses.
Solution LocusView used the NIST Framework to identify and consolidate security policies for individual applications, and was able to document and discuss plans as issues arose to simplify and shorten the process. Cohesive also provided VNS3 firewall virtual machines to manage and secure LocusView’s network.
Outcome Since implementing Cohesive’s approach to the NIST Framework, LocusView’s passed initial audits and the first of several penetration tests.
