Ultimately, the company appreciated that Xpanse helped it operationalize its technology across the full security team rather than implementing guardrails that would hold them back from getting the most value from their subscription. Case in point: Xpanse included licenses for the company’s entire team, whereas RiskIQ only included five seats for the company and charged more for additional seats. The SOC team leader has roughly a dozen people on his team and wants to share across other information security teams, such as the vulnerability, pen testing, and red teams. With RiskIQ, the user seat limit made it a challenging and manual process to share information across teams, rather than helping all stakeholders at the company align and take action to drive down risk.
With Xpanse, the SOC team leader, his team, and other security leaders at the company have a true partner in discovering, monitoring, and reducing risk to create a more secure organization. As the company completes new acquisitions and the SOC team evolves to respond to ever-changing internet threat vectors, they can sleep more easily at night knowing that Xpanse will always automatically find and surface risks as well as partner with them on their security journey.
