How TRA - Media and Marketing Research Company manages its ISO 27001 Compliance?

The Company and Their Crisis

TRA is a media and marketing research company based out of New York, USA. TRA was founded by industry experts who have been in the media research industry for over 30 years and have built and run digital media companies and is the first company to provide a true advertising return on investment platform that addresses the age-old challenge of marketing accountability. TRA holds an ISO 27001 certification and is one of the meager 65 companies in the US to hold this prestigious distinction - a feat that speaks volumes about the company's high standards of Information Security.

Retaining this prized certification requires establishing the security of the company's IT assets and also keeping the network safe from the mishaps that arise out of inadvertent breaches of security by the administrative users. Though this looks light on paper, generating periodic reports is a daunting task if done manually, and searching for logs that led to security-breach is as good as finding a needle on a haystack.

Enter EventLog Analyzer

Impressing the IT Department in TRA with its reporting features, ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer came to the rescue. Eventlog Analyzer has been assisting TRA with log management and monitoring and other traditional eventlog and syslog management functions for a long time. EventLog Analyzer's canned reports cater to specific compliance requirements viz. PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, SOX and GLBA. The product also facilitates creating custom reports, and also scheduling the report to run periodically, in accordance to the time frame that TRA had to establish their compliance - in this case, every month. This feature ensured that EventLog Analyzer perfectly fit the groove that TRA was, for long, looking to fill - TRA could now customize reports that establish their compliance to ISO 27001 standards and schedule them to run once every month and have it emailed to the IT Administrator.

Adding to this, the granularity of EventLog Analyzer's internal user-activity reports came in handy for TRA. With the precision that EventLog Analyzer's reports offered, the data can be drilled down to the exact raw-log event. This meant that no activity on the network was spared from EventLog Analyzer's watchful eyes, and the information about each activity could be easily retrieved. This aspect of the product fulfilled TRA's requirement for vigilance on network security.

The Benefits that TRA Reaped

EventLog Analyzer presented TRA with a set of features that were their need of the hour. EventLog Analyzer helped TRA's IT department periodically generate and schedule reports for the ISO auditors - this ensured that, time after time, TRA retained their prized ISO 27001 certification. Eventlog Analyzer also turned out to be TRA's network detective that helped identify any possible security breach and prevent them before it happens.

"I just could not find any other software in the market that does the same things as EventLog Analyzer" says Syed Islam, IT manager, TRA. On deploying EventLog Analyzer, in addition to network security, TRA saw a plethora of benefits under the hood too. EventLog Analyzer, with its simple and easy-to-use web based interface helped them save a lot on the manpower. As said in the earlier paragraphs, EventLog Analyzer also helped TRA to ensure a flawless business-flow, which saw a direct impact on the revenue of the organization. Above all these, EventLog Analyzer, with its attractive pricing, proves to be a choice without second thoughts for TRA Global.

In short, EventLog Analyzer helped TRA's business flow without disruption. By ensuring adherence to ISO 27001 Standards, EventLog Analyzer also made sure that the flow was up and to the right!
