In 1997, a group of Spanish insurance companies formed Tecnologías de la Información y Redes para las Entidades Aseguradoras S.A. (TIREA) to create a world-class IT organization for its member companies. In recent years, those companies have become especially sensitive to the importance of protecting IT systems and data. TIREA needed a SecOps strategy that fostered collaboration across security and operations teams, enabling them to minimize vulnerabilities and maintain continuous compliance with regulatory requirements, international security standards, and best practices.
BladeLogic Server Automation ensures TIREA servers are patched, hardened, and updated automatically to quickly and efficiently improve environment stability and reduce incidents.
TIREA has enhanced its ability to meet contractual commitments related to security, performance, availability, and business continuity, so staff can better support the increasing digital requirements of insurance businesses in Spain.
- Centralized management of server configurations reduces errors and maintains compliance with ISO 27001, internal security compliance, and other standards.
- Automated vulnerability scans check 100% of the servers daily, enabling the staff to identify potential security breaches and deliver rapid responses.
- Within the first year of solution implementation, IT increased the number of servers by 66% without the need for any additional staff.
“Our environment continues to experience double-digit growth. With BladeLogic, we are positioned to manage twice as many servers as we have today with our current staff.”— Nobuya Osawa, IT Director, TIREA
