Paddy Power Betfair to use Balabit monitoring solution
Paddy Power Betfair is to use Balabit’s Shell Control Box (SCB) monitoring solution to boost the security of its product development processes.
The solution, which will also enable the operator to monitor privileged access to production systems, provides session recording to ensure that all developers’ activities are monitored, accountable and traceable.
Users connect to production servers through SCB and, after being granted access to the server, SCB monitors and records all activities in a tamper-proof way.
Betfair deployed the solution in 2015, with Paddy Power now following suit after the recent merger between the two brands.
“We are really impressed with the quality and features available within SCB. It fulfilled all the important criteria we had in terms of a fast implementation, easy configuration, reliable logging and transparency for users,” Paddy Power Betfair head of security compliance and assurance, Vasile Dorca, said.
Zoltán Györkő, chief executive of Balabit, added: “We’re committed to delivering solutions which provide a real return on investment and meet today's increasingly compliance-driven security requirements.
“SCB brings strong levels of security along with improved usability and flexibility so that organisations have the assurances that privileged user activity is fully audited, to fully protect their own customer’s data.”
