PCI Compliance

As data security becomes more paramount, enterprises are using the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Security Standard Council Data Security Standards (known as PCI DSS) to handle customer billing information, including credit cards, debit cards, ATM cards, and point of sale (POS) cards. Merchants, financial institutions, hardware/software companies, and other professionals who accept cards of any type are responsible for meeting the PCI requirements.

Maintaining PCI compliance is something each entity must do of their own volition. Self-policing is always tricky, but when your organization is handling thousands upon thousands of log messages with potentially sensitive data, the task becomes monumental.

That's where the Sumo Logic PCI Application comes in. With ready-made Dashboards that monitor each aspect of PCI compliance, targeted searches that allow you to dive into specific areas, and carefully designed ad-hoc reports, your job becomes much easier. Instead of using manpower to look through millions of log lines, Sumo Logic watches over your deployment, making potential problems easy to spot.

How the app works

The Sumo Logic PCI Application takes log data uploaded to Sumo Logic, then indexes this data into a View. This indexing allows for quicker search results against your data. The View is used for PCI Requirement searches as well as PCI Dashboards.

One PCI-related data appears in a Dashboard, you can learn more about particular incidents. This type of forensic investigation is also expedited with the View indexing.
