Business Challenge

Among other vital responsibilities, Vaimo is tasked with safeguarding its clients eCommerce operations. This means relentlessly applying creative techniques to thwart persistent, malicious behaviors that include spam, identity deceit, and bogus user creation, all while attempting to restrict access to key infrastructure resources to a core group of authorized specialists. Concurrently, the company eagerly sought new ways to satisfy an ever-increasing set of regulatory requirements.


Vaimo deployed Sumo Logic’s cloud-native machine data management platform to extract the hidden value contained in the log files produced by its ongoing operations. This entailed capturing, aggregating, and taking action utilizing the raw data generated on more than 1,000 servers in its hybrid-computing environment.


With Sumo Logic in place, Vaimo has been able shrink the number of personnel permitted to interact with its sensitive resources, and is far better positioned to manage security-related incidents. The company has also improved its compliance with current and upcoming regulations such as Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI) and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Vaimo has even been able to use its newfound mastery of machine data to strengthen its competitive stance.
