AP Pension – Securing assets, safeguarding data
Industry: Financial Services
As a respected, independent Danish pension cooperative, AP Pension takes great care of its owners – who are the customers themselves. The company has achieved financial security for the businesses it serves, and they’ve also chosen to safeguard their sensitive data through LogPoint.
A crucial solution
In 2006, AP Pension noticed a dire need to make their information security more efficient, and the need to implement a proactive log management solution was apparent.
We realized that our log file management process was both reactive and extremely time-consuming,… But we also lacked the ability to detect system-related incidents unless a specifically configured monitor had reacted to one – and monitors are only useful if you know what to monitor. They can never offer insight from more than a single system at any one point.
Strict compliance, proactive management
The company had two requirements in searching for a log management solution, according to Mette.
Firstly, we are subject to strict financial regulations. This requires that log files from our systems can be preserved in a separate, protected environment for a minimum of five years. Secondly, we need to be able to correlate events from multiple systems, and we need to be able to work with this data in a proactive manner.
Thanks to the implementation of LogPoint, AP Pension now fully meets regulatory standards, while at the same time gaining valuable insight into its entire IT operation. A professional solution for a very professional organization
