Uncovering Cost Discrepancies with a Security Component Audit
The client had significant concerns that one of their most critical security components was not financially aligned with the market and was not architected optimally for their environment.
As a large global transportation firm, they were very conscious that inefficiencies had significant cost impacts due to their scale and complexity. In addition to these concerns, they were facing an audit that they believed was unwarranted and predatory.
Despite the lack of a previous relationship, this client engaged MCS due to their established security expertise to conduct a security environment audit.
MCS engaged without expense to the client, and conducted a comprehensive licensing consumption and billing audit within a week. They were focused on providing insightful results while ensuring that the effort was non-disruptive to the client and efficient in leveraging any client resources.
The results were compelling. MCS was able to demonstrate that the client had been over-charged by multiple millions of dollars over an extended period. This confirmed the client’s concerns that they had been misaligned while also negating the need for a vendor audit.
As a result of this experience, MCS has continued to deliver a customer-first approach and security expertise in support of the client.
