Reducing Time to Security Incident Detection in a Complex Environment About Genesys Genesys provides an all-in-one Cloud Contact Center Solution.

Solutions As the team transitioned to running its applications and workloads on AWS, they started using Threat Stack and immediately gained visibility into what happens when a new microservice is deployed. "Threat Stack can handle our rapid approach to deployment," Sexton said. "We don't deploy code to an existing server. Instead, we spin up a new microservice on a new server, go through the configuration management process, and tear down the old server. Threat Stack helps us throughout this process."
