The most valuable feature is the SecOps because they have our back and they help us with the report. We jump on calls monthly to set goals and roadmaps internally for how we can secure our platform more. Their SecOps program is absolutely amazing when you do not have a dedicated resource for security. Currently, we have 57 servers with the Threat Stack agent. We have about 70 servers in total. When you get to that point and you're running microservices, there's no good way to have all that data coming in from all those servers and have a system. The Threat Stack agent is providing the data. But even if we have the data, I have no time or expertise to know exactly what to look for in a log and what should alert me. Whereas, their SecOps program is experienced, they know what to look for, they can continually adjust and look at the accounts. They can understand our behavior and know that something that doesn't look good is okay or we're allowing it, and then they can filter back those notifications. It's like having an extension of your team. And then, it grows with you. If I were to hire somebody tomorrow, one security guy is not enough, but that person could directly work with the SecOps program and get up to speed, and then start taking oven some of the manual toggles. And then eventually, in a year or however long, we could phase out the SecOps program. Or we could decide, no, we're not going to do that, we're just going to continue to leverage it and not built out an internal security team. The flexibility of it is just amazing.
