Customer Success: Utility Cooperative – SEIEC

Prevailion Customer Story - Matt Ohmes - featured image

Matt Ohmes, IT Manager with SEIEC, said Prevailion gives his organization an extra tool to help verify whether a vendor is serious about security before it awards costly projects. If a vendor is found to be compromised, Ohmes can take that information to his CEO and the board to evaluate that relationship.

Prevailion empowers Ohmes and his organization to:

  • Verify if a vendor is serious about security before it awards a costly project
  • Monitor existing third-party vendors and identify Evidence of Compromise
  • Act on that evidence by limiting a vendor’s access to their network
  • Share compromise information with leadership to make informed partner choices

“Prevailion has given me some assurance. My vendors I have found in the platform were green and stable — that gave me a sigh of relief, because you never know what you’re going to find.”
