Sumo Logic speeds up incident investigations by automatically triaging alerts and correlating threats across on-prem, cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid cloud sources. Its cloud-based SIEM supports collecting log and event data from infrastructure and applications. It also enables the correlation of the collected data to scale down the volume of info required to sift through to investigate issues.

Cloud security monitoring and analytics

The system generates deep security insights via use-case-driven queries, dashboards, and alerts. It facilitates cloud-native data monitoring and analysis that gives actionable security awareness for cloud and on-premises environments. It also streamlines prioritizing and investigation of security insights within the infrastructure.

Alert analytics

Sumo Logic provides a convergence of data sources, collecting millions of logs and security-relevant data from various architectures. It uses pattern and threat intelligence matching with correlation logic, statistical evaluation, and anomaly detection to filter the raw records down to thousands of Signals in near real-time.

Correlation-based detection

The platform’s insights represent the intelligent and prioritized clustering of Signals and other data enrichments for analysts to immediately investigate. Insights decrease validation and investigation times by presenting an automatically generated storyline of potential security incidents containing all relevant context analysts need to make rapid response decisions.
