Enforce Compliance

The Security and Compliance Challenge

Machine data contains a comprehensive record of all events related to an organization’s security posture and therefore is key to enforcing security, operational, and regulatory compliance. However, with the explosive growth in the volume, variety, and velocity of machine data, organizations today cannot keep up with the data deluge and are therefore unable to transform their data into insights. To effectively enforce security, operational, and regulatory compliance, enterprises must be able to easily audit and investigate incidents and rapidly remediate both security and compliance-related issues. Alerts must be triggered in real-time, compliance reporting must be timely, and data must be retained over the long term. Furthermore, in order to effectively enforce security, operational, and regulatory compliance by leveraging machine data, organizations need a platform that is capable of scaling to handle the volume of data generated and robust enough to transform that data into insights.
To effectively enforce security, operational, and regulatory compliance, enterprises must be able to easily audit and investigate incidents and rapidly remediate both security and compliance-related issues.
Sumo Logic enables enterprises to enforce security, operational, and regulatory compliance through the following features:
  • Secure, scalable collection of any unstructured data (logs, APIs, apps, etc.)
  • Flexible retention policies for real-time analytics and long term archiving
  • Anomaly Detection and LogReduce machine learning analytics for proactive, real-time detection of events
Examples of customer success using Sumo Logic to enforce compliance include:
  • Apigee: Achieved PCI Compliance using Sumo Logic
  • Intermedia: Centralized all logs and enabled security investigation without relying on pre-defined rules and reports
  • Gazelle: Prevented “price-scraping” from their website saving millions of dollars per year
