Paddy Power Betfair enhances security with Balabit

Betfair and Be The House unveil ‘Cash Out Roulette’Paddy Power Betfair has moved to bolster its security measures by deploying the Shell Control Box (SCB) privileged monitoring solution from Balabit.

The solution, deployed by Betfair in 2015 prior to its merger with Paddy Power, provides session recordings of all of the combined operator’s activities.

The Balabit solution audits access to its Linux servers and a number of Windows systems, with users only able to connect to production servers via SCB.

Once access has been granted to the server, SCB then monitors and records all activities in a tamper-proof way, while the solution operates host-independently and transparently, thus not interfering with daily operations.

Abilott, a provider of governance, risk and compliance solutions, and long-time Balabit partner in the UK, deployed the solution, with virtual SCB appliances now in place at the operator’s data centres.

“We are really impressed with the quality and features available within Shell Control Box; it fulfilled all the important criteria we had in terms of a fast implementation, easy configuration, reliable logging and transparency for users,” Paddy Power Betfair’s head of security compliance and assurance, Vasile Dorca, said.

Zoltán Györkő, chief executive of Balabit, added: We’re committed to delivering solutions which provide a real return on investment and meet today’s increasingly compliance-driven security requirements.

“Shell Control Box brings strong levels of security along with improved usability and flexibility so that organisations have the assurances that privileged user activity is fully audited, to fully protect their own customer’s data.”
