OSI Group Safeguards its Network and Global Workforce with Forcepoint

Industry

Wholesale Trade

Headquarters

United States

OSI Group delivers not just food, but also innovative concept-to-table solutions that delight consumers around the globe. When increasingly sophisticated email attacks and an unprotected, dispersed workforce led to network outages and confidential data leaks, OSI turned to Forcepoint Email and Web Security Cloud.

Challenges

  • Strong uptick in the volume and sophistication of emails containing malicious links or fraudulent content
  • Growing workforce of remote employees—60% of endpoints are laptops, connecting to third-party networks
  • Employee carelessness enabled successful attacks, allowing hackers to compromise the network, cause downtime, and steal confidential information

Approach

  • IT consultant EyeT and Forcepoint deployed Forcepoint Email and Web Security Cloud for the flexibility of cloud, unified management, real-time visibility into global activity, and anywhere protection of the dispersed workforce

Results

  • Drastically decreased the administrative burden on the OSI IT team
  • The rollout was so successful 75% of its European locations have now deployed the combined security solution
  • Forcepoint became a pan-European standard for OSI

“Our employees no longer receive emails that might contain malicious content. We are very pleased with the Forcepoint solution.”
