Live Nation

Where security takes centre stage


Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment company with a top ecommerce site, views cyber security as a key business enabler. With revenues of $7.24 billion in 2015, 20,000 employees, and more than 530 million tickets sold by the Ticketmaster division, Live Nation demands comprehensive, layered security for protection on their endpoints, servers and networks.

James Patterson Wicks, Senior Director, Infrastructure Security Information Security for Live Nation Entertainment recently shared his success story at Gartner Data & Risk Show, June 2016.

Wicks discusses why they chose a single vendor approach to security, and the benefits of centralised visibility across their enterprise.


In addition, it was critical to adopt solutions that would not reduce the benefits of AWS deployment.
