CU24 chooses NitroSecurity SIEM suite
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (3/16/11)--Credit Union 24 has selected NitroSecurity’s security information and event management (SIEM) suite to bolster its corporate security and help it comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Established in 1981, Credit Union 24 offers a cooperative electronic funds transfer (EFT) environment designed to empower credit unions to attract, serve and retain members. With nearly half a million locations at major retailers and local merchants, it is the largest credit union-owned point-of-sale network in the United States. Counting more than 100,000 national and international ATM locations in its network, the company offers access to the greatest number of U.S. surcharge-free ATMs in the country. Credit Union 24 sought to streamline the time- and labor-intensive process of ensuring PCI DSS compliance. The company identified policy and procedural alternatives that eliminated much of the need to access PCI DSS “in scope” data for normal operations and still provide service and security to its participating credit unions. In order to fully realize the benefits, Credit Union 24 needed to automatically verify the new policies and procedures to eliminate expensive Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) audits. “After initially researching data-loss prevention (DLP) technology, we realized that we could not manage a DLP with existing resources,” said Mike Williams, assistant vice president of technology at Credit Union 24. “SIEM offered a more comprehensive view of network activity, and if used appropriately, could help us effectively detect insider and outsider data loss and more--without DLP’s significant acquisition costs, deployment complexity, or need to hire additional information technology personnel.”
