In the fast-paced, dynamic world of IT, adaptability is the key to success.
That’s why Japan’s PERSOL Group never stops refreshing its security strategy. Embracing a vision of “Work, and Smile,” PERSOL offers a comprehensive array of human resource services such as temporary staffing, IT outsourcing and engineer recruitment. They currently run a total of 133 companies across the globe and operate in over 640 locations.
While protecting such a sheer amount of confidential personal data is never an easy task, PERSOL had been doing a good job fighting external threats with its legacy SIEM system through correlation analyses. When it came to internal fraud prevention, however, the system was inflexible, requiring a predefined set of rules. It was also not scalable enough to combat increasingly sophisticated attacks, and the workflow for normalizing and processing heterogeneous data imported to the system was time-consuming.
PERSOL was also longing for a community where users could exchange valuable experiences and best practices. So, when the old system reached the end of its shelf life, PERSOL decided to make a change.
