UK Media Firm Consolidates APM and SIEM Tools with Devo

June 19, 2020

[wtr-time]

Custom Solution Requirements

  • 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

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.

 

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.

More Data. More Clarity. More Confidence.
