Asset Owner Identification Automation for Vulnerability Management

A major Communications & Media company faced a large number of long-lived vulnerabilities in their service delivery network for which the asset owner was unknown. Without an asset owner for whom to turn for remediation, each day the situation was going from bad to worse. Their existing manual ownership identification processes were hopelessly overwhelmed by the volume of newly discovered vulnerabilities and newly identified assets. To solve this problem, DayBlink Consulting helped the client wring value out of a fractured data environment by gathering tens of millions of records from various operational systems into a single repository, developing automation to sift through the enormous set of data to find clues to ownership, and building a user-friendly UI to help users fully confirm ownership where ownership identification was not definite enough for auto-assignment. Our solution successfully decreased the number of high severity vulnerabilities without an identified owner by 95% in just 12 months.

Data Orchestration Transformation

A leading cybersecurity technology startup faced a significant data integration challenge, with disparate systems hindering efficient operations. Manual data handling processes led to delays, errors, and inefficiencies which impacted the overall performance of critical business functions. DayBlink Consulting proposed and implemented a comprehensive data orchestration strategy, centered around MuleSoft. MuleSoft’s API-led connectivity facilitated a modular and scalable architecture, ensuring flexibility and adaptability as the client was growing quickly. The solution reduced data silos and fostered real-time data exchange between verticals. Time-sensitive tasks that once took hours were now completed in minutes with little or no human touch, empowering the client to respond swiftly to market demands.

Unified Data Management Post-Spinoff

In the aftermath of a challenging spinoff, DayBlink Consulting partnered with a major data center company to consolidate fragmented information across digital and analog sources. Faced with the task of rebuilding billing and contract systems, our solution employed automation techniques including RPA, OCR, and ETL scripting to unify customer records, invoicing, billing, and other critical datasets. Automated search algorithms and OCR were deployed to extract and process data, establishing a unified data lake as the foundation for revamped systems. The automated approach led to immediate improvements integrating customer records, invoicing, and billing efficiently. Automation significantly reduced time and resources required for data management.

Data Standards for Enhanced Security and Accessibility

As part of an enterprise data governance program at one of the largest cable providers in North America, DayBlink undertook a strategic initiative to establish standards and processes crucial for ensuring the right data, with the right access controls, remains consistent, available, and discoverable when needed. The client faced challenges in managing data consistency, availability, and discoverability, requiring a comprehensive solution to establish standards and processes for secure and accessible data. Our solution leveraged MDM tools, Snowflake, SailPoint (for identity data), and Blue Planet (for inventory data), to create a robust framework ensuring data integrity, accessibility, and security. The inventories created played a crucial role in the success of an expanded Vulnerability Management program, guaranteeing that all systems storing data were up to date and fully patched.
