The Challenge

DreamWorks Animation was interested in outsourcing some of their Centralized Log Management needs to a third party to allow them to focus more on their core business. After consideration, they determined that an open-source solutivon developed, managed, and monitored by a third-party service provider would be ideal. A major requirement was that their vendor provide a security focused solution that utilized continuous compliance solutions to ensure security.

Mission, as part of its Managed ELK Stack service, deployed a comprehensive ELK Stack solution to collect and manage log data for DreamWorks Animation. With Mission’s Continuous Compliance tool’s data, the studio was able to create customized dashboards within their dedicated ELK Stack to meet their security and audit requirements.
