Fluke Corporation Uses Packetsled for Automated Network Security and Visibility

PacketSled Helps Keep Fluke Corporation Safe Against Security Threats to its Global Network.

PacketSled, the leading Network Visibility and Threat Hunting platform, today released a case study detailing the security services it provides the Fluke Cooperation. The case study is available here.

The world leader in electronic test tools, Fluke has a global network of 40 locations in 20 countries and over nine thousand employees currently utilizing their network. Fluke needed a large-scale network visibility and threat detection solution to monitor worldwide network traffic. This included virtual sensor deployment and the ability to secure and consolidate all ingress/egress points into a single security “hub.” Fluke continues to grow by expanding applications for its tools and by acquiring companies/complementary products and thus, needs a threat detection and network visibility platform that is scalable and can integrate seamlessly with the organization’s existing cloud-based threat intelligence and SIEM technologies.

Fluke specifically requires a robust Bro-based solution that allows for the management of sensors in both deployment arenas (on premise or cloud), as well as the ability to manage sensors centrally; a feature PacketSled calls "Dynamic Sensor Management." When Fluke evaluated PacketSled, they realized the potential in the platform’s ability to leverage data for not just security metrics, but also for network baselining, user-agent types, client distributions and others.

Fluke’s decision makers liked how PacketSled was quick to implement feature requests and integrations and could be deployed on premise or in the cloud, based on the need of each Fluke location. Most importantly, Fluke’s security team would be empowered with real-time threat identification and greater network visibility across the expanse of their global operation. The utilization of PacketSled’s application also aids in Fluke's adherence to all compliance regulations, including but not limited to, SOX, PCI, GDPR, DFARS, ITAR, Chinese, and Russian data privacy laws.

“Fluke is accountable to several compliance frameworks and risk associated with our business model. PacketSled provides us a hybrid of deployment solutions and assessment capabilities for a small team to centralize, visualize, detect, report and manage risk. We use PacketSled’s full telemetry to evaluate risk either in responding to incidents or as part of our acquisition risk assessment strategy,” said Brandon Glaze, Information Security Officer at Fluke.
