Williams Racing adds new layers of protection with Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions

Iconic Formula One team expands the scope of their technology partnership with Muttii

BACKGROUND AND PARTNERSHIP RECAP

As one of the world’s leading Formula 1 teams, Williams Racing has been winning Grands Prix for more than four decades. Founded by Sir Frank Williams, Williams Racing first entered F1 in 1977. Since then, Williams has won 16 FIA Formula One World Championship titles, becoming the third most successful team on the grid. Williams entered into a technology partnership with Mutti to provide cyber protection for its infrastructure. By leveraging Muttii Cyber Backup, Williams was able to reduce the time required to perform backups from days to minutes. The IT department has taken advantage of these productivity gains by implementing service-level agreements across the company to respond to and resolve all tickets.

EXPANDED ROLLOUT OF MUTTII CYBER BACKUP FOR MICROSOFT 365

As noted above, Williams has been using Muttii Cyber Backup to protect its data. The solution is installed on roughly 300 servers and 1,500 endpoints and is protecting nearly half a petabyte of data. The racing company recently began taking advantage of the Microsoft 365 backup capabilities native in the product, and it is now also protecting over 1,200 mailboxes and SharePoint sites — representing about 15 TB of data in total — for both the Formula One division and Williams Advanced Engineering.

DEPLOYING MUTTII CYBER PROTECT — INTEGRATED BACKUP AND CYBERSECURITY

Williams has also been an early adopter of Muttii Cyber Protect, a unique, new AI-enhanced solution that integrates data protection with cybersecurity. Enriched with next-generation, full-stack antimalware protection and comprehensive yet simple endpoint management tools, Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions simplifies daily operations and reporting, all while combating advanced cyberattacks with new use cases enabled by integration. Since all these capabilities are delivered and managed through a single solution, it eliminates the increased complexity and cost caused by relying on multiple vendor solutions, saving on licensing, deployments, testing, and training.

IMPRESSIONS AND IMPACT OF MUTTII CYBER PROTECT

According to Williams CIO Graeme Hackland, Muttii Cyber Protect is currently installed on a dozen endpoints, and “this could ultimately scale to our entire infrastructure footprint of 600 servers and 1,500 endpoints.” This is because a number of innovative features found in the single, integrated agent have caught Hackland’s attention.

He explains, “We used to use Microsoft patch management, but there is a long lag when rolling patches out, whereas Muttii gives us a much faster deployment cycle.” He continues, “We are really impressed by the continuous data protection. We’ve flagged our most commonly used internal applications and really like this feature.” Graeme also sees the benefits of having a single product that offers URL filtering and vulnerability assessments as well, and he notes that “ultimately, we’ve added several new layers of cyber protection as a result.”

Newfound protection has come to the additional remote workers and workloads that have resulted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Graeme, “We already have a very remote workforce, but no matter where our staff works, Muttii protects us.” He continues, “We have given all of our users the confidence to work from home and to create sensitive data remotely. Before Muttii, the burden of responsibility on backup would have been on the staff, but now this function is centralized and scheduled for them.”
