Our primary use case is protection of our website. About 70 percent of our holiday bookings, about 7,000 in total, go through our website. ShieldX protects that environment. When we moved from a physical environment in Rackspace — and this was a project that we started two and a half years ago — we identified the main risk to the business, which was infection of the website. We were moving our site to AWS, from a hosted, private environment to a private AWS environment. We were concerned about the potential damage to the business if we got hacked. ShieldX was a necessity to enable us to move the business forward into AWS. We have two installations of ShieldX. We have one installation running in AWS, it's protecting our web environment. And we have another installation on-prem which is protecting corporate servers.

The primary use case is microsegmentation. We are segmenting our servers, so only people who need access to a server can see and access it, then vice versa. We are using the latest version and deployed around September/October last year.

Our primary use case is to provide microsegmentation and microsecurity controls in a multi-cloud and multi-data-center environment.

ShieldX has been designed from the very beginning to work well in cloud environments. It understands autoscaling, automation, and auto-configuration. These are the things which are important in today's operating environment. We have already added it to the enterprise environment. We are in the process now of putting it into production. We are somewhere around 15 to 20 percent done. Our goal is to get up as high as 100 percent within the next six to nine months.

The Adaptive Intention Engine is fantastic. It allows us to develop security policies using the language of our internal customers. It's machine-learning applied to security workflows. That allows us to much more easily construct the policies that will protect those workflows.
