Frasers Group takes control of IT

By Retail Technology | Wednesday August 24 2022 | UPDATED 23.08.22

British retailer Frasers Group – which owns Sports Direct, Jack Wills and Game – has had significant success with its new IT platform

Frasers Group is using the Tanium platform to gain better visibility and control of its IT environments, including those of newly acquired companies.  

Prior to Tanium, Frasers Group only had visibility to about three quarters of its endpoints, which made quickly identifying and remediating vulnerabilities a challenge. Tanium’s improved capabilities around penetration testing and vulnerability scanning, in addition to its comprehensive endpoint visibility, enabled Frasers to reduce vulnerabilities by 36% and decrease the time required to scan its entire IT estate by two hours, dramatically improving cyber hygiene and keeping Frasers’ many systems secure.  

Matthew Wilmot, group head of information security at Frasers Group, said: “Tanium has dramatically improved visibility across our environments and has been critical to the smooth onboarding of newly acquired companies. Not only did we suffer zero downtime—at stores or on websites—but we were able to celebrate the Christmas season because Tanium swiftly identified and resolved Log4j vulnerabilities that sent other retailers scrambling during the busiest month of the year.”
