GM Sectec and Sumo Logic announced a partnership to develop Security Analytics. This proprietary PCI 4.0- Ready SIEM is available now and enables service providers and merchants to be ready for PCI DSS 4.0 compliance, the global standard that will replace 3.2.1 for all entities that store, process, or transmit credit card data. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is governed by the major card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discovery and JCB), and brings added value to the protection of cardholder data with a defense in-depth model.

With Requirement 10 of the updated PCI DSS 4.0 standard set to go into effect between March 2024 and March 2025, organizations will be required to have an automated 24x7 SIEM solution for centralizing the storage and interpretation of safety-relevant data. Powered by Sumo Logic's Cloud SIEM solution, the Security Analytics offering enables enterprises to see through data noise easily, respond to emerging threats quickly, and cost-effectively maximize protection while proving compliance. Together, GM Sectec and Sumo Logic are delivering a scalable, reliable, and high-performance SIEMaaS (SIEM as a Service) solution to help clients meet the new PCI DSS 4.0 standards and reduce cost for compliance through easier management and accelerated workflows, including data retention, security, and access control.

Through GM Sectec's award-winning managed services and Sumo Logic's Cloud SIEM which empowers SOC teams to modernize security operations by automatically surfacing actionable insights using a single, intuitive, and collaborative cloud-native platform.
