At a Glance

The Company

Agoda, international hospitality company with over 7,000 employees worldwide.

Agoda uses Zendesk, a customer service software & sales CRM, to process all of their customer requests. When faced with an increasingly volatile cybersecurity landscape, Agoda needed an integrated solution to more effectively handle malware attacks, while at the same time being able to dynamically scan up to 10k files and URLs daily, without delaying overall customer service operations and response time.

This allows their SOC team to focus on other important areas in the organization’s security posture. Supported by the same platform and Incident Response team that they already value, Agoda and their security team can sleep well at night, knowing that their email and Zendesk channels are protected from all threat types.
