Migration through Collaboration
Maintaining PCI DSS Compliance in AWS

PartyLite is the world’s #1 party planning and candle company, selling everything from candles and scented fragrances, to holiday and home décor. Their multimillion dollar e-commerce business operates in 21 countries and through nearly 52,000 independent PartyLite business entrepreneurs.

The Challenge

To improve the flexibility and global scale of its infrastructure, the company was migrating a vast majority of its applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Due to an unplanned closure of their previous datacenter provider, PartyLite needed to accelerate their migration project to meet a tight 30-day deadline, all while maintaining security and PCI DSS compliance standards.

PartyLite’s Technology Director, Sandra M. Duphily, approached managed service provider and AWS Premier Partner Logicworks to build, automate, and manage their AWS environment. To maintain their PCI compliance, they selected Alert Logic managed security solutions for both intrusion detection and log review. 


Our staff is less stressed, our infrastructure and business applications are safer, and the overall risk to our business is reduced, we look forward to growing our business with Logicworks and Alert Logic as we continue to iterate new technology offerings.

Why Alert Logic?

While AWS provides excellent networking and security services, additional tools and an experienced engineering team are required in order to meet PCI requirements. Logicworks and Alert Logic collaborated to create a comprehensive runbook and incident plan. Duphily added, “Logicworks educated us on the requirements of PCI compliance in AWS, and Alert Logic not only provides the critical elements of intrusion detection and human log review, but also proactively identifies compliance risks.
