Exciting times here at Sumo Logic! Last week we announced a new round of funding Sumo Logic Raises 80 Million and this week we are EXCITED to holla about our upcoming release of the AWS VPC Flow Log App!
See the AWS blog by @jeffbarr https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/vpc-flow-logs-log-and-view-network-traffic-flows/At a high level VPC Flow Logs allow AWS customers to create alarms that will fire if certain types of traffic are detected; you can also create metrics to help you to identify trends and patterns.
The information captured by Flow Logs includes allowed and denied traffic (based on security group and network ACL rules). It also includes source and destination IP addresses, ports, the IANA protocol number, packet and byte counts, a time interval during which the flow was observed, and an action (ACCEPT or REJECT).
The Sumo Logic Application will add a TON of additional value on top of what AWS is currently giving you with pre built Dashboards that show Geographical Locations of Network Traffic, highlight REJECTED IP’s
Dashboard Uno: Packets dropping from China and Russia
Dashboard Dos: Looking for Anomalies within the Network Traffic (Source, Destination, high rate of packets dropped) all dynamically set by our machine based learning analytics.
This is just another step in quest of the Cloud Illuminati. Stay tuned for more updates and join us in our BETA program to get a head start on our AWS VPC Flow Application!
