a leading cloud-native data analytics service, today announced security
monitoring support for a number of cloud applications including
Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce.com
and Google Apps, as well as a new partnership with ThreatStream
add machine-readable threat intelligence into the Sumo Logic service.
These new offerings augment the current Sumo Logic Cloud Application
portfolio that includes AWS Cloud Trail, AWS Config, Amazon Virtual
Private Cloud (AmazonVPC) Flow Logs, Box, ServiceNow and other
feature-rich solutions. Sumo Logic's improved security monitoring
portfolio is now the industry's most comprehensive for a cloud-native
service, thereby enabling organizations with the real-time, continuous
intelligence they need to help manage audit and compliance activities
and improve their security posture.
to Gartner, "Through 2020, 80% of cloud breaches will be due to
customer misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not
cloud provider vulnerabilities." Sumo
Logic brings a new level of visibility and transparency to activity
within these modern-day, cloud-based services. Once ingested into the
Sumo Logic service, customers are able to combine their activity logs
with logs from other cloud apps and on-premise infrastructures, to
create a single monitoring solution for operations, security and
compliance across the entire enterprise.
"As more and more organizations leverage modern-day, cloud-based applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce.com,
Google Apps and Box, it's critical that they have visibility into user
admin actions to help manage audit and compliance activities and
identify unusual behaviors that might compromise data security," said
George Gerchow, director of product management for security and
compliance at Sumo Logic. "And combined with threat intelligence, Sumo
Logic is the only cloud-native service that delivers the continuous
intelligence organizations need around cloud apps to generate key
security insights and mitigate data security risks."
Support for Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce.com and
Google Apps will be available in beta for existing Sumo Logic customers
through the Sumo Logic Application Library in April.
Sumo Logic unveiled a number of other announcements ahead of RSA 2016 including:
- New Partnership with ThreatStream
Sumo Logic has partnered with ThreatStream, a
pioneering enterprise-class threat intelligence platform to add
machine-readable threat intelligence into Sumo Logic's security
monitoring capabilities. Through this partnership, customers will be
able to correlate their Sumo Logic log data with threat intelligence
data to identify and visualize malicious IP addresses, domain names,
email addresses and URLs. This helps to increase the velocity and
accuracy of threat detection and to proactively identify and combat
cyber threats targeting their operations. Sumo Logic is the first
cloud-based analytics solution to have a threat intelligence offering.
The Sumo Logic App for ThreatStream is currently in preview and will be
generally available to existing customers later this year.
- New CSA Star Certification
Sumo Logic has secured CSA Star Certification by
the Cloud Security Alliance. The technology-neutral certification
leverages the requirements of the ISO/IEC 27001 management system
standard together with the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix, a specified set of
criteria that measures the capability levels of the cloud service. This
certification makes Sumo Logic the first and only cloud-native data
analytics vendor with the highest level of compliance certifications to
secure data in the cloud. The news further demonstrates the company's
commitment to security and compliance.
- RSA Security Panel with Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec
Logic will be hosting a panel discussion and networking reception with
the Herjavec Group on Feb. 29, 2016, at the W Hotel in San Francisco.
"Inside the Tank: A Fireside Security Chat" will feature Robert
Herjavec, founder and CEO of Herjavec Group, and George Gerchow,
director of product management for security and compliance at Sumo
Logic. They will share perspectives on how today's biggest technology
trends are driving new and complex challenges and opportunities for
security teams. This is an open event, register here: http://bit.ly/1S9p19g.
and managing an organization's security has traditionally been a manual
function. It often takes weeks or months using internal monitoring
tools to detect and respond to security incidents and determine the
impact," said Hugh Njemanze, CEO for ThreatStream. "We're thrilled to
partner with Sumo Logic to combine and correlate machine-readable threat
intelligence with log data to help organizations quickly respond to the
most targeted attacks and stay ahead of potential breaches."
