Sumo Logic Updates Cloud SIEM Reporting, Threat Detection Capabilities

Sumo Logic, a log management and security analytics company, has updated its cloud security information and event management (SIEM) platform to help security professionals manage data and keep pace with evolving cyber threats, according to the company. The cloud SIEM updates come during Sumo Logic's Illuminate user conference, which began yesterday.

Security professionals now can leverage the following Sumo Logic cloud SIEM capabilities:

  • Deep search and credit-based licensing for security data
  • SecOps team reporting, including real-time insights into data ingestion, usage and various SecOps metrics and trends
  • Chain, threshold and aggregation rule types for automated threat detection

Along with its cloud SIEM updates, Sumo Logic has made several other Illuminate announcements thus far.

Sumo Logic has unveiled Observability solutions, which provide real-time analytics across application and infrastructure logs, metrics, traces and metadata, the company stated. Sumo Logic's new Observability solutions include Kubernetes and Amazon Web Services (AWS) offerings.

Furthermore, Sumo Logic has introduced a Software Development Optimization (SDO) solution, a business intelligence offering that integrates and analyzes data from DevOps tools, the company noted. The SDO solution gives developers real-time insights into software development pipelines.

Sumo Logic IPO, Multi-Tenant Design for MSPs, MSSPs

The launch comes a few weeks after Sumo Logic launched a successful IPO (initial public offering).

In an IPO-day conversation with MSSP Alert, Sumo Logic Co-Founder and CTO Christian Beedgen emphasized that the company's platform has a multi-tenant design for MSPs and MSSPs.

Sumo Logic continues to make strides in the MSP and MSSP partner markets as well. The company earlier this year launched its Practice Builder program, which allows MSPs and MSSPs to use Sumo Logic's Continuous Intelligence Platform to secure their customers' on-premises and cloud environments.

The company also acquired JASK Labs, which provides an autonomous security operations center (SOC) platform for MSSPs, VARs and managed detection and response (MDR) providers, last year.
