How Runecast Future-Proofs Aviation & Aerospace Companies

Many aviation and aerospace companies around the world rely on Runecast for helping the stability and security of their mission-critical operations. Runecast customers in the sector include Amadeus, German Aerospace Center (DLR) and more.

We feel your pain

The aviation and aerospace sectors face significant IT security challenges due to their interconnected systems, critical infrastructure, and sensitive data – including the constant threat of cyberattacks targeting flight controls, navigation, and communication networks. Such attacks can disrupt flights, compromise safety or even grant unauthorized control of aircraft.

Supply chain vulnerabilities are another factor for concern. The complex global network supporting these sectors can introduce weaknesses if components are compromised or malicious code is inserted during manufacturing or distribution.

The intricate connectivity – both on aircraft and the ground – widens the potential attack surface, enabling breaches in one system to impact others. Furthermore, satellite systems crucial for communication and navigation introduce satellite security concerns. Breaches in these systems can disrupt vital services, triggering critical operational disruptions.

CISOs, CIOs, and their IT Security and Operations teams require a comprehensive approach involving risk assessment, robust cybersecurity practices, regulatory compliance, training, and collaboration for dealing with these challenges proactively.

"Security and risk management leaders continue to be asked to do more with less — facing more demand for service, fast-changing threat landscapes and insufficient technical talent."

Runecast is an enterprise platform for security compliance, operational efficiency, stability and uptime. In a single dashboard, it provides an out-of-the-box transparent view of your IT infrastructure, revealing not only configuration drift and vulnerabilities (including CVEs, VMSAs and CISA KEVs) but also vendor best practices alignment and security compliance audits and reporting.

Proving security compliance posture to customers is simple with Runecast’s customizable reporting. Automated security standards audits include CIS Benchmarks, NIST, DISA STIG, GDPR, ISO 27001, BSI IT-Grundschutz, VMware Security Configuration Guide and more. Runecast further helps to protect trade secrets by working securely on-premises and even offline (no data needs to leave your organization).

Fulfilling needs for increased efficiency and ensuring stable production, IT teams can reveal critical issues proactively and know exactly which issues to prioritize for security compliance, operational efficiency and uptime.

IT Security and Operations teams get one proactive platform to replace multiple reactive tools. Runecast automates proactive discovery of issues for AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, VMware, Windows and Linux. Other helpful audits are also built-in, such as Best Practices for vSphere on Nutanix and both SAP HANA and Pure Storage on vSphere.

Best of all, Runecast deploys in minutes, is simple to use, and our customers report between 75-90% reduction in troubleshooting time due to Runecast revealing critical issues proactively and showing exactly which to prioritize (with remediation steps).
