Perfetti Van Melle Turkey proves ISO/IEC 27001 compliance and secures its exclusive confectionery recipes

With Netwrix Auditor, the major confectionery manufacturer improved control over its IT environment to ensure security and compliance.

Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, announced today that Perfetti Van Melle (PVM) Turkey has chosen Netwrix Auditor to accelerate audit preparations and secure sensitive data.

PVM Turkey, founded in Istanbul in 1988, is a branch of the Italian-Dutch company PVM, the third largest manufacturer and distributor of confectionery and chewing gum in the world. Among its flagship brands are Mentos, Chupa Chups and Alpenliebe. To ensure the security of highly sensitive data, such as the recipes for its famous products, PVM Turkey confirms its ISO/IEC 27001 certification annually. To streamline compliance and ensure the security of its valuable trade secrets, the IT team needed to establish control over the IT environment, which comprises 400+ users located in 10 offices across the country.

The IT team chose Netwrix Auditor based on advice from their peers, who highlighted its ease of use and efficiency. With the solution, PVM Turkey gained the following benefits:

  • Full visibility into file server activity. The IT team automated monitoring of user activity across all file servers where sensitive data resides. This enables them to mitigate the risk of unnecessary data exposure and detect suspicious actions in time to respond effectively.
  • Security policy enforcement. With the proper level of visibility, the IT team can now be sure that each user is closely following internal policies, which are designed according to security best practices and applicable regulations.
  • Faster and less stressful ISO/IEC audits. Netwrix Auditor enables the IT team to spend 60% less time on audit preparation and quickly retrieve specific information whenever auditors need clarification.
Netwrix Auditor is a scalable solution that is very easy to install and use. With the software, I am able to enforce security policies, ensure the safety of sensitive data and pass audits much more easily. The platform is so responsive that I need just a couple of minutes to generate the reports that will demonstrate our compliance with ISO/IEC requirements to auditors.
Cemal Demirsu, IT Infrastructure Manager at PVM Turkey
Security of trade secrets is undeniably one of the top priorities for big corporations. Voluntary ISO/IEC certification helps them ensure that security processes work correctly and minimize the risk of the sensitive data exposure. However, audits require significant effort from their IT teams, who usually have to juggle a variety of projects and tasks. Complete visibility across the entire IT infrastructure enables them to efficiently ensure that all security controls are in place and enhance the safety of sensitive data, which greatly helps with passing compliance audits.
