Qatari Diar was established in 2005 by the Qatar Investment Authority, the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Qatar. Today, it is one of the world’s most trusted and respected real estate companies recognized for its commitment to quality, local community, partnership, and hallmark sustainability.

As of 2021, Qatari Diar has a shared capital of US $8.1 billion, with 50 investment projects under development held in 20 countries around the world, combining an investment value of around US $35 billion.

With large amounts of data and assets to protect, Qatari Diar needed to ensure that it was eliminating all security visibility gaps within its IT environment. It implemented LogRhythm SIEM for complete visibility into activity that may potentially introduce risk to its operations. The solution enables it to work towards its goal of creating and delivering transformative real estate for its local and global stakeholders.

The Challenge

Cyberattacks are a significant threat to any business, and real estate is
no exception. As an organization that oversees a multitude of property development projects throughout Qatar and beyond, Qatari Diar recognized that it was in a vulnerable position as threat actors seek bigger targets. Its responsibility for confidential data and high-value assets meant that it couldn’t afford to take any risks when it comes to cybersecurity.

With ransomware, brute force, and phishing attacks constantly on the rise, Qatari Diar needed a solution that could enable it to work towards its goal of supporting Qatar’s growing economy. This involves supporting the country’s real estate development priorities and ultimately aiding the Qatar National Vision 2030.

Qatari Diar needed to make visibility into its network activity a priority to help analysts swiftly spot security issues and accelerate their response time. It required a security information event management (SIEM) solution to better understand how its information and data was moving throughout its infrastructure landscape.

The Solution

Qatari Diar selected LogRhythm SIEM for its deep analytic and security capability to detect and respond to threat actors across its entire IT ecosystem. LogRhythm SIEM’s ease of navigation is key to enabling Qatari Diar’s security operations center (SOC) team to effectively eliminate visibility gaps within the environment.

The platform’s end-to-end capabilities enabled Qatari Diar to achieve a streamlined analyst experience. Qatari Diar gained a compatible solution that supports integration with hundreds of security and IT solutions to further extend its SIEM capabilities and data collection.

“Our SOC team switches hats all day long so finding a solution that is simple, easy to deploy and to manage
was absolutely critical in our security strategy,” said Anas Kayal, IT Infrastructure & Operations Sr. Manager at Qatari Diar. “By deploying LogRhythm SIEM, we can ensure that anybody that’s on our environment accessing any of our systems is always accessing in a more secure method.”

With LogRhythm SIEM, Qatari Diar was able to increase the efficiency and accuracy of its threat hunting activities by focusing on high priority threats. It can make better informed security decisions with intelligent insights into events across different systems and domains. This allows it to focus on delivering quality lifestyles and innovation in real estate development globally without security-based setbacks.

Unmatched Customer Commitment

On top of its technical capabilities, Qatari Diar chose LogRhythm amongst its competitors for its commitment to ensuring customer success.

“It’s not just about having the right technology in place, it’s having the right people. The LogRhythm sales team delivered a continuous level of support throughout the deployment and implementation stages and beyond,” said Kayal. “Even months post implementation, the team kept us in the loop with new capabilities and features that they knew would work well for us.”

LogRhythm’s security experts provide a value-adding experience by constantly reviewing Qatari Diar’s
use cases. Its dedication to delivering new product innovations every 90 days helps Qatari Diar to reduce noise, prioritize work that matters, and safely secure its environment.
