Lyft Takes the Blinders Off of Data Movement
One of the core accelerators of Lyft’s growth and success is their remote company culture, but they faced a very big challenge -- ensuring their employees could get their work done effectively while protecting their sensitive IP at the same time. Code42 Incydr was a game-changer for Lyft -- it has allowed them to gain full visibility into data activity across Lyft’s vast cloud footprint like public sharing of sensitive documents and their flexible workforce. With Incydr, the Lyft security team is able to focus their attention on the alerts that matter most and determine a right-sized response based on the criticality of a situation with Incydr’s risk prioritization methodology. Lyft has gone from complete blindness to gaining full visibility into Google Drive and other cloud platforms including Airdrop, it’s allowed them to decrease their time-to-response from 24 hours to 1 hour, smooth their departing employee process, and enable their remote workforce all while protecting business data.
