When Commidea first became Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant in 2004, technology restrictions meant that it had to install two separate systems to meet the stipulated log data requirements.
These systems were complex and time consuming to use. However, since installing a new integrated log management & SIEM 2.0 solution (log and event management, file integrity monitoring, and network and user monitoring in a single offering) from LogRhythm, Commidea is experiencing new efficiencies by having an unprecedented view of data centre activity and superior log data analysis capabilities.
Due to the quantity of credit card transactions it processes, Commidea is classed by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as a level one processor. Commidea has been fully compliant with PCI DSS since 2004 when the regulations were first established and its compliance is checked annually by an independent third party QSA.
