LogRhythm Partners with eFinance to Strengthen Egypt’s Digital Payment Security Ecosystem



LogRhythm, the company empowering security teams to navigate the ever-changing threat landscape with confidence, has partnered with eFinance, a subsidiary of eFinance Investment Group to rapidly detect and mitigate threats in Egypt’s digital payment security ecosystem with LogRhythm SIEM, LogRhythm’s security information and event management (SIEM) solution. LogRhythm has partnered with eFinance to secure operations across the entire Egyptian payment network and establish its reputation as a trusted fintech provider throughout the region.

By adding LogRhythm SIEM into its security systems, eFinance benefits from reduced mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR). It gains a scalable, accessible and easy-to-integrate solution that will enable it to establish a fully functional security operations center (SOC) with a unified security solution that can grow with its business.

“The fintech sector is a massive target for threat actors as they continue to launch attacks on industries that give them the biggest pay-out. Egypt must strengthen its security posture to keep consumers safe and maintain trust within the digital economy. Our SIEM solution is providing the tools for eFinance to detect security issues before they can cause damage,” said Mazen Adnan Dohaji, General Manager and Vice President, IMETA at LogRhythm. “As the digital payment ecosystem continues to grow, creating a safer financial environment for businesses, governments and customers is more important than ever. We’re working in partnership with eFinance to transform digital payment security and create better financial customer experiences throughout the region.”

eFinance is now able to leverage custom rules that protect its critical servers and quickly remediate security issues. Its SOC benefit from a single pane-of-glass view for full visibility over its entire network. This allows eFinance to identify risks earlier in the Cyber Attack Lifecycle and provide a secure service to its customers in Egypt.

“Not many SIEM solutions on the market support our need to scale. LogRhythm SIEM provides us with a flexible, scalable, and reliable solution that can evolve to match the ever-changing threat environment,” said Mahmoud Dorgham, InfoSec Head at eFinance. “LogRhythm’s integration capabilities, and its user-friendly interface and dashboards allow our analysts to drill down on emerging security risks in real time. With LogRhythm we know our security needs are covered. This means we can focus on the continued development of our digital financial network whilst overcoming significant security threats.”
