Posted 3/14/11 : Security experience assists operator in meeting stringent French regulatory requirements
Security intelligence provider Q1 Labs and managed services supplier Prosidie have been collaborating in a project to help Prosidie sports betting client Genybet meet the strict online gambling security regulations demanded by the French regulator ARJEL.
The project has involved ensuring that the security of cloud-based gambling sites is compliant with regulator requirements.
Genybet parent Genyinfos is protected by extensive security infrastructure including two factor authentication, firewalls, encryption, IDS and IPS systems monitored 24/7 by an IT security team at Prosodie using Q1 Labs' QRadar Security Intelligence Platform integrated with Prosodie's own custom-written helpdesk and system alert tools.
”We have worked with Genyinfos and its Genybet site for many years and the number of security events that we have had to manage has grown exponentially," said Bertrand Deroubaix, chief information security officer for Prosodie. "To improve our ability to deal with these events, we started evaluating solutions and found that QRadar was highly automated, easily deployed and integrated well with our own custom-written alerting and helpdesk systems."
He revealed that QRadar SIEM has been in place for 6 months now, and has helped to improve security and reduce management overhead while allowing the betting company to meet its ARJEL certification requirements.
Under ARJEL, online gambling sites need to be able to show auditable controls for dealing with all security incidents as well as an ongoing secure environment for the management of all customer data and transactions.
