Catena Media gains critical security visibility
Headquartered in Malta, Catena Media is a high-quality online lead generation company for iGaming and financial services, leading the way with record breaking retention rates of over 5 million monthly users. With more than 400 employees managing 2,600 customer brands across the globe, obtaining real-time security insights across the company’s ecosystem was a top priority.
With a lean security staff, attempting to optimize security operations with the incumbent open-sourced security incident and event management (SIEM) solution was introducing many challenges. The solution ran on-premises and had stability and scalability issues. While the open-sourced solution had an active community, there was limited dedicated support to aid Catena Media with product issues. Ultimately, it required a lot of time and effort to manage, which was precious time the security staff needed to spend on other, priority efforts.
Moving away from an open-sourced approach, Giannella Borg, Information Security Lead for Catena Media, outlined several requirements for the company’s SIEM. It needed to have a cloud-based architecture with broad integration capabilities and, of the utmost importance, it needed the ability to visualize security information quickly and clearly.
“I felt it was crucial for us to gain information fast, ideally from a cloud-based SIEM. That way, I wouldn’t have to worry about what’s happening under the hood, I could just focus on getting the data,” said Borg. Following a multi-vendor evaluation, Catena Media selected the Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise as the leading solution that met and exceeded her requirements.
The power and simplicity of Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise enabled the security team to readily move through the journey of learning key security findings to fix any issues, building out additional security capabilities, and innovating to expand attack prevention capabilities.
