Forrester TEI study: Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM delivers 166 percent ROI over 3 years and a payback of less than 3 months

We are seeing a renewed focus on accelerating digital transformation projects across business ecosystems and workflows within our customer base. These projects are enabling key business outcomes and this organizational transformation has given security and IT leaders the catalyst and opportunity to modernize security operations while eliminating on-premises debt. Throughout the current challenging environment, Sumo Logic has been helping customers with their digital transformation journey securing cloud-first, cloud migration, cloud rebuild projects, and app modernization efforts. Critical to our customers’ successes has been the adoption of cloud-native solutions such as Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM.

Forrester Consulting recently released the report Total Economic Impact™ of Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM which concluded that by using Sumo Logic’s cloud-native SIEM, the organizations enhanced the effectiveness of their SOC teams and improved their overall security posture with 166% ROI over 3 years and a 3-month payback.

Additionally, the Forrester Total Economic Impact study revealed additional benefits through implementation of Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM, including:
