GM Sectec, a global leader in payment security, and Sumo Logic, a SaaS analytics platform to enable reliable and secure cloud-native applications, 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.
