Cyber Protection for the Boston Red Sox Baseball Team

The World Series Champion Boston Red Sox rely on innovative technology and a sophisticated digital environment both on and off the field to ensure peak performance in the competitive world of Major League Baseball.

Bringing Cyber Protection to the Game

From off-season scouting to at bats in the bottom of the ninth, the Red Sox rely on safe, secure, and efficient sharing of data for success on and off the feld. Delivering terabytes-worth of video, stats, and scouting information to key decision makers in real-time is critical to the success of the Baseball Operations team.
