Flowserve has grown substantially with operations in more than 50 countries and 300 locations worldwide, creating a complex global IT landscape that includes numerous applications running on servers, virtual machines, and operating systems. “Our ability to protect legacy applications while simultaneously modernizing and transforming the company is one of our biggest challenges,” says John Breen, global head of cybersecurity at Flowserve.
Flowserve is undergoing a digital transformation and recently adopted a comprehensive cloud strategy that is focused on moving 90% of their systems from on-premises to the cloud by 2026. To support that migration, Flowserve wanted to shift to cloud security protections with advanced capabilities.
“In the industry, we see some very creative attacks and we have to stay ahead. Protecting the company, our employees, and our intellectual property is a priority,” says Breen.
