Customer Profile

Global software company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate an organization’s operational response to critical events in order to keep people safe and businesses running. During public safety threats such as active shooter situations, terrorist attacks or severe weather conditions, as well as critical business events such as IT outages or cyber-attack incidents, over 3,300 global customers rely on the company’s SaaS-based platform to quickly and reliably aggregate and assess threat data, locate people at risk and responders able to assist, automate the execution of predefined communications processes, and track progress on executing response plans.


The Critical Event Management (CEM) Software Company is currently in process to achieve Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, compliance. FedRAMP is a United States government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, and is a crucial partner to enable them to accomplish this.


The first step for the CEM Software Company was NIST 800-53 compliance. The security team and operations teams leveraged the Evident Security Platform (ESP) as a tool to help them achieve this.

As a CEM solution, they have a true understanding and appreciation of the automated compliance capabilities that come out of the box with ESP. With ESP they were able to reduce the manual effort required to achieve insights into their security vulnerabilities and achieve compliance with NIST 800-53. ESP’s one-button compliance reports that indicate pass/fail status for all of the testable infrastructure controls, save the organization time and money in validating compliance and providing evidence for auditors.


ESP provided security visibility for what the Event Management Software Company configured “in” the cloud by consuming all of Amazon’s APIs. ESP alerts them of configuration changes and policy violation and provides a path to remediation; Continuous monitoring and alerting. ESP helped the security team leading their FedRAMP initiative and become compliant with regard to the AWS shared services model, CIS AWS Security Best Practices and NIST 800-53 by automating the exposure and remediation of vulnerabilities in AWS.
