About The UK Media Company

A top UK media company was unhappy with and looking to replace its LogRhythm SIEM. The problem became acute when the company was in the midst of cloud migration and its data management couldn’t meet expectations.
At the same time, this media company wanted to consolidate many tools that were doing similar tasks—e.g., Elastic and Datadog—which would save money and eliminate redundancy.

Customer Quick Facts

Challenge

A true multitenant, 100% cloud solution, Devo met the company’s needs, especially the ability to ingest data from both on-premises and cloud applications. The next-gen SIEM capabilities of Devo enabled the organization to shed multiple applications and standardize on Devo for all of its analytics needs.

Solution

The Devo Data Analytics Platform easily ingests all of the bank’s data from any source in any format, providing real-time insights that help improve performance, security, and protection from cyberthreats.

Requirements

  • Ingest machine data in raw format from all sources
  • Ingest TBs of data per day, over time
  • Deployable on any cloud provider

Wanted: A Single Data Management Solution And SIEM To Bolster Security

This leading media company had been using LogRhythm for a few years, without success. The contract was coming up for renewal, and the security team took the opportunity to find a true next-generation SIEM.
When LogRhythm proved inadequate, the organization had purchased Elastic and Datadog in a frustratingly unsuccessful attempt to meet its needs. This only served to add cost and duplicate efforts, while still preventing the company from operating a functional SIEM.
In parallel, the business was migrating to the cloud, and the inability to ingest a wide variety of data types such as Google Suite, OAuth, and others was fast becoming a major issue that left them vulnerable to security breaches.


Why Devo

Several critical capabilities made Devo attractive to the media leader, including:

  • Designed ‘for the cloud’ with a multitenant architecture, Devo enables deployment in all the major cloud providers
  • The ability to easily scale and manage large volumes of data (e.g., multiple terabytes) and query as needed
  • The ability to ingest machine data in raw format—especially unstructured data—from on-premises and cloud sources

Next Steps

The company will be implementing Devo immediately, and once operational they intend to investigate other areas of the business, such as IT Operations and web application monitoring.
