Waratek has practical experience working with leading global corporations including Financial Services, Healthcare, Fortune 100 companies and more.
A publicly traded global commercial real estate services firm with nearly $10B (USD) in annual revenue offers commercial real estate services for companies and investors in 60 countries, providing a wide variety of technology-driven solutions and services as well as relying on technology to manage company business. Facing a long and costly traditional “find & fix” vulnerability management process, the Client contacted Waratek to evaluate the company’s Secure compiler-based runtime application security solution. In less than eight days, Waratek Secure implemented “always-on” security protection for threats to the OWASP Top 10, SANS 25, and zero-day attacks.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a leading Australian University. Home to nearly 50,000 students, it is providing real-world infrastructure, learning and teaching, and graduate skills to the next generation of change-makers. Prior to evaluating Waratek, the customer assessed hundreds of internal web applications, finding multiple Java versions that required quarterly patching of security vulnerabilities. As a result, the Company determined that a traditional upgrade or patching program was not feasible due to operational burdens and financial costs. Waratek is integrated into the Company’s application hosting platform and applies virtual patches that are the code equivalent of an Oracle Critical Virtual Patch (CPU).
US-based global media company evaluated how Waratek’s runtime protection platform can instantly and seamlessly modernize, harden, and protect the company’s applications. Waratek’s unique approach to application security resulted in the remediation of years of vulnerabilities and the updating of an out-of-date Java JRE without changing a single line of code. The customer elimination of false positives improved performance overhead by nearly 7% and increased by less than 2.5% while under attack.
A leading provider of information technology and mobility applications and services for U.S. hospitals and health systems, sought Waratek to implement new strategy to thwart crypto-miners attacking Oracle ERP. Like most organizations, the Client must address a variety of security threats from bad actors using malicious scripts to exploit vulnerabilities all around the world. After identifying the nature of the attack, Rimini Street recommended Waratek, a Preferred Solution Provider working side-by-side to mitigate the threat. Waratek’s security solution offered faster, less disruptive and greater protection that saves 50 percent of its previous annual support and maintenance costs.
“Many of the security patches from Oracle are released on a quarterly basis, often addressing vulnerabilities which are up to 12 months old; that means your system may have been vulnerable for 12 months. By using more modern security approaches we found we would be able to better protect our systems…”
“I recall during the initial discussions of the solution, I was a bit skeptical of what I was hearing. Day one protection, easy installation, customizable rules etc. My skepticism quickly diminished. Our deployment was one of the easiest I’ve experienced, and we reaped the benefits of Day One protection the moment we “turned it on.”
“A week after we installed the Waratek solution we got hit with more deserialization attacks,” the CISO says. “Because of Waratek’s solution, the attacks were immediately stopped, and the solution automatically alerted us to the attempt. All of the hacker’s malicious scripts failed, which took us to a new level of confidence — the Waratek virtual patch is providing the protection we need, better and faster than we ever thought possible.”
“This approach protects our software much quicker than (physical) patches and without disrupting operations.”
