Wilbur-Ellis' Journey To The Cloud

How do large, long-established companies move to the cloud?

Very carefully.

When Wilbur-Ellis, a leading international marketer and distributor of agricultural products and one of America’s largest private companies, took on the task of moving their physical IT environment into the cloud, one of their first priorities was ensuring their new dynamic environment was secure. We just released a success story that outlines how Wilbur-Ellis made the transition from traditional IT to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud with the help of Alert Logic. 

Today, the agriculture industry is going through a technological revolution; iPads, smartphones, GPSs, and drones are now all part of the day-to-day operations at Wilbur-Ellis. In order to develop an agile “cloud first” philosophy, they had to have a solid knowledge based security approach. 

Their new philosophy resulted in pushing their network perimeter out further than ever. This new perimeter brought greater risks and required them to consider how they would maintain visibility across their network and AWS environment. A cloud security solution that didn't meet all of their needs would mean putting their fiercely loyal clients at risk. The company was not willing to put their 94-year-old reputation on the line. They needed solid security solutions and expertise in protecting AWS workloads.

To see how Alert Logic helped Wilbur-Ellis reach their security goals in their AWS environment while meeting government and regulatory requirements, read the full success story.
