Like it does with most organisations who must comply, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) triggered a review of how Ventura, one of the UK’s largest customer management outsourcers, handled its log and event data. Since installing an integrated Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solution from LogRhythm, Ventura can carry out complex analyses of log and event information as well as identify any anomalies in real-time.
Accessing log and event data for compliance or security investigation purposes had always been a laborious and timeconsuming task for Ventura. This was because log and event data were held in heterogeneous formats on each of the various IT systems in operation, requiring separate analysis to be accessed. The company recognised the value that an integrated Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solution would offer in terms of simplifying and reducing the time taken to access and analyse log data.
