Convenience store chain gains hybrid visibility as they scale AWS workloads
ExtraHop, the leader in cloud-native network detection and response, announced that MAPCO is using ExtraHop Reveal(x) to ensure the secure delivery of cloud applications as the company scales in the cloud to meet the demands of an expanding company.
MAPCO operates a growing network of convenience store locations across the southeastern United States. The company prides itself on delivering an exceptional customer experience, from quality products and services to its signature coffee. In 2019, MAPCO began laying the groundwork for further expansion. To rapidly scale up IT resources on-demand to support both in-store and operations-focused applications, the team at MAPCO turned to Amazon Web Services (AWS). However, the move to AWS also introduced new complexity when it came to visibility across their entire environment.

“ExtraHop was awesome because it was an all-in-one solution,” said Ricardo Bauza, Sr. Network Engineer at MAPCO. “Our team didn’t have to learn a new tool, and we had information about the health and security of all of our applications in one place. With the built-in option for traffic mirroring in AWS, implementing Reveal(x) in the cloud was easy—it took less than 30 minutes.”

In March 2020 when COVID-19 started to spread in the U.S., MAPCO, like many organizations, needed to transition a large portion of its headquarters employees to secure remote work. MAPCO used Reveal(x) to gain visibility during the urgent project and were successfully able to move 300 people to using VPN in less than three days. They were also able to verify the security of those configurations, and monitor to make sure remote employees could access what they needed to stay productive.
