Case Study on Cano Petroleum Inc

Kaseya has empowered IT operations to run more smoothly. Tasks that took hours or days before now just take moments. That results in fewer interruptions to the business; allowing thecompany to focus on business objectives rather that a “tech”taking up their workday installing patches and upgrades.
– Jon Morgan, Manager of Information Technology, Cano Petroleum.

As a publicly traded oil and gas company, Cano Petroleum, Inc. must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reliably accounting for all revenue streams and corporate expenditures in an effort to ensure transparency throughout the accounting process. The company uses innovative technology to extract additional oil and gas from mature fields throughout Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma, necessitating the need to centralize compliance efforts through its headquarters in Ft.Worth.

For the IT department, ensuring SOX compliance means being able to account for all IT assets, making sure systems are maintained regularly and consistently, protected from malicious security threats like spyware and viruses, backed up properly and can be recovered easily in case of data loss. Cano also has to ensure that help desk issues are dealt with accordingly, corporate resources are not being used for personal use (within reason) and the company is in compliance with the software licensing agreements it has in place with vendors.

Case Study for VGZ-IZA-Trias

With more than 4 million citizens under its umbrella, VGZ-IZA-Trias provides a third of the Dutch population the coverage they need. The €5.27 billion insurer processes more than 350,000 claims each day.Keeping the IT infrastructure that allows VGZ to provide these services secure is essential, not only to protect its own proprietary systems and information, but also to ensure that the insurer is fully compliant with Dutch government health care privacy regulations.

A vital part of VGZ’s security and regulatory compliance efforts is making certain that its infrastructure doesn’t contain software vulnerabilities or configuration errors that could make a security breach possible, or knock its systems out of compliance. With those aims in mind, VGZ sought an effective way to regularly assess its external, web-facing systems for any potential security weaknesses. View more for VGZ-IZA-Trias
