About Combination

Combination, a software development company, is composed of developers and engineers with a focus on the casino and gambling industries. Creating cloud-based technology solutions, the team at Combination is responsible for the technology behind both the physical slot machines and online sports betting platforms. They work with some of the biggest names in the industry worldwide, which means that quality standards are high.

The team at Combination is respected by these industry giants because they are constantly looking ahead and developing new ways of gathering and conveying information in real-time. Therefore, when looking for a data protection solution, this tech-savvy team needed a partner that would not only move at their speed but be able to withstand high compliance standards.

Challenge

Combination, an IT company transitioning from physical slot machines to online gambling, faced a need for robust Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI) compliance and data protection without slowing their system processes. With the shift to online gambling, there was an increased dependency on storing personal and credit card data. Though Combination aimed for enhanced security with clear data flow visibility, they prioritized efficiency, given their lean, high-paced development environment. Initial research into Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions revealed many that would hamper their operational speed. After trying a competitor's resource-intensive solution, which prolonged development times significantly, the company began searching for an alternative that met both their security and efficiency needs.

Solution

Combination sought a data protection solution without compromising processing speed, a common issue with traditional tools they'd previously explored. Initially, they believed robust protection would inherently reduce speed. However, a meeting with a partner of Next introduced them to "Reveal." This solution allowed tracking of data movements, spotting credit card-like number patterns, and alerting the IT security team of potential misuse, all cloud-based. Reveal also ensured unbiased investigations by using anonymized and pseudonymized data, upholding employee privacy while maintaining compliance. Crucially, Reveal was lightweight, aligning with Combination's need for speed and efficiency. The program's flexibility complemented Combination's innovative spirit, allowing transparency, employee privacy, and collaborative goals in their flat company structure.
