Bank MA Safely

I’m glad we used Illusive, everyone saw the value. It’s a playbook we’ll carry forward through the next M&A.

— Director of Cyber Security Engineering

The Challenge

  • Assessing the security posture of another bank they are acquiring
  • Finding identity vulnerabilities—when they had no other solution
  • Tight and inflexible deadlines for the closing of the acquisition

The Solution

  • Deployed Illusive for a one-time assessment of the bank being acquired
  • Comparison reporting against their own continuous assessments from Illusive

The Results

  • Full identity assessment of the acquired bank in less than 30 days
  • Discovered thousands of critical identity risks that were completely unknown
  • Concrete, quantitative data persuaded the executive team to delay full IT integration until issues were addressed
