Cloud architecture

Sumo Logic is Cloud Native multi-tenant platform that can instantly scale each component of the architecture up or down to meet customer demand.

Breadth of portfolio
Show details

While QRadar has a comprehensive portfolio (logs, EDR, SIEM, and SOAR) but it’s very complex and costly to implement, often requiring professional services

Sumo Logic offers a unified platform for observability (logs metrics, APM/Traces, and RUM) and security (security data lake, audit, and compliance, Cloud SIEM and Cloud SOAR), assisting with tool consolidation.

Show details

QRadar on Cloud requires the installation of a data gateway appliance, which is used to connect to the instance of QRadar running in the IBM cloud.

Sumo Logic is a platform/vendor agnostic with the ability to collect logs and security-relevant data across your on-prem, cloud and multi-cloud environments without the need for additional hardware

Threat Intel Platform
Show details

QRadar offers Integrated TIP however requires the purchasing of IBM Advanced Threat Protection Feed at an additional cost

Sumo Logic includes an integrated, out-of-the-box TIP, leveraging CrowdStrike (OEM) to help add threat dimensions to the security events. Sumo Logic can also integrate with external intelligence feeds.

Fixed data structure
Show details

In QRadar, everything needs to be pre-parsed to facet the fields for you to look for something. If a certain field has not already been parsed, you’re stuck doing keyword searches.

Sumo Logic fully indexes all log data – structured and unstructured – without having data adhere to indexes with defined schemas allowing for quick time to value and flexibility.

Show details

QRadar licenses based on the number of employees (1 EPS per employee) with 30-day retention.

Sumo Logic offers a simple credit-based licensing model that offers predictability and flexibility and enables frictionless expansion to align with use cases without charging based on users.
