Commidea streamlines log data operations with LogRhythm

LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, has helped Commidea, a market leading card payment solutions provider, to enhance its operations thanks to a swift and seamless integration of LogRhythm technology into its new data centre.

As part of its ongoing auditing and compliance program Commidea reassessed how it was meeting the centralised logging and file integrity requirements of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) regulations. Commidea recognised the benefits of replacing the two separate Security Information Event Management (SIEM) and File Integrity Monitoring tools which Commidea previously had in place for five years. Instead, an automated log management solution which holds logs in a central repository would allow fast, easy access to data in order to quickly view and rectify any irregular events. LogRhythm delivered such a solution, offering the company unprecedented network visibility and control.

LogRhythm had to address the fact that Commidea is a level one processor of credit card transactions. As such, the company requires fast visibility of, and access to, vast quantities of log data. The LogRhythm solution gives Commidea not just increased visibility of data centre activity and speed of access to log data, but also enhanced auditing and investigation capabilities to help fulfil PCI DSS and other regulatory needs.

Marc White, head of security and compliance at Commidea, comments, "When reviewing our auditing and compliance tools it quickly became apparent that there were significant benefits to be realised in replacing the two separate systems we had previously with an integrated and more holistic log data management system. We also needed seamless integration to deliver fast return on investment."

"Having selected LogRhythm, we've found that log information is broken down into clear and categorised events at high speed which allows us to view all activities quickly and easily. Being a financial sector company, system security and PCI DSS compliance were also major factors in our choice of supplier, and LogRhythm supports both of these needs brilliantly."

Ross Brewer, vice president and managing director, LogRhythm EMEA, saidsaid, "Naturally we are delighted at the positive reaction we have had from such a progressive company as Commidea. Its endorsement is further recognition of the quality of LogRhythm solutions, and that our technology has become integral to its business. Helping the company enhance its operations with no drop-off in service is great news for LogRhythm, Commidea and its customers."
