Observability

Session Overview

Going Beyond the Three Pillars: How to Achieve Observability

This session will look at how to guide your observability strategy based on what you want to achieve, what your users care about, and the data you need to achieve it.

Application Performance Management for Microservices with Sumo Logic

Modern microservices are incredibly complex. It’s essential to understand end-to-end user transactions in order to provide the best user experience and meet SLAs. Learn how to use distributed tracing and OpenTelemetry to provide a complete picture of your application performance.

Zooming in on the Map: System Observability for DevOps

In an organization practicing DevOps, dev and ops (and even support) have to share responsibilities for reliability engineering. They need different views based on the same information. This customer session will outline how Sumo Logic’s observability solutions gives their team a single source of truth across logs, metrics and traces.

Entity empowered troubleshooting

Modern applications are sufficiently instrumented and complex, creating a swell of data that's hard to navigate, parse and understand without proper context. Entities provide the backbone of your data streams, enabling you to tie all the individual measurements back to the objects and their interactions that happen on your actual stack. By traversing entities and overlaying raw data, Sumo Logic can help tie together raw signals with root causes.

Alerts to answers: guided root cause exploration for AWS apps
(Snoop)

Troubleshooting incidents in a modern AWS app is challenging given the diversity of AWS services in use and the dependencies between them. This customer session will lead AWS infra/DevOps engineers and SREs through a root cause exploration methodology and best practices that will reduce time to resolution.

SecOps: Technology

Session Overview

Getting started with security at Sumo Logic

Did you know Sumo Logic provides security solutions? If not, this is the perfect place for you to start--regardless if you’re in SecOps, DevOps, or ITOps! In this session you’ll see how Sumo Logic makes security analytics easier across a wide spectrum of use cases. We’ll begin by discussing security operations challenges that many security teams and organizations are facing around the globe. Then we’ll jump into the different security solutions Sumo Logic offers and map the top use cases that each supports.

Leveraging the Sumo Logic platform for security and compliance

Advance your knowledge of how to leverage the Sumo Logic platform for security. We’ll discuss utilizing LogReduce/LogCompare, and our outlier functionality to determine anomalous activity around entities. You’ll learn how to take advantage of Sumo’s out-of-the-box content for security applications -- including several new Work From Home solutions. In addition, we’ll walk through our native integration with CrowdStrike’s threat intelligence feed and how you can gain real-time dashboards and alerts. Finally, we’ll share how you can collapse your compliance use cases all in one place).

A deeper look at Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise

Step into a day in the life of a security analyst and see how Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM Enterprise fundamentally changes how analysts go about their day. We’ll focus on Insights, enrichments, artifacts, and other items that help automate much of what level 1 security and SOC analysts manually perform daily. We’ll also review a few real-world examples and share how analysts can start with eyes on incidents, and ultimately move to fully automated insights integrated with common tools such as Slack, SOAR tools, and ticketing systems.

Unique security requirements for cloud and modern technologies

Digital transformation has changed the attack surface, and organizations are generating more data than ever before. What does this mean from a security standpoint? Attend this session and hear more about what makes a modern SaaS SIEM solution and why it’s critical for detecting threats across your hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures. Finally, we’ll explore what tomorrow’s SIEM might look like.

Emerging threats: a view from the front lines

In this session we will take a look at the threat landscape in 2020 and discuss the new realities and threats that we face in a post-COVID-19 world. Additionally, this session will focus on how organizations have started to transition to zero trust models and how the threat models have changed.

Detecting phishing attacks and Office365 account compromises

Although phishing is still the number one attack vector, as organizations move to the cloud most of the services are exposed to the world. That means attackers have 24/7 access to exposed services to try and gain access.


Watch this demo to see how Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise automatically correlates all events across disparate data sources making the detection and investigation of phishing attacks easier for an analyst. You’ll also see firsthand how Cloud SIEM Enterprise detects Office 365 account compromises.

Detecting AWS privilege escalations and anomalous behavior

As your company grows, you find yourself creating more and more accounts with multiple users. But mistakes happen and often accounts don’t get disabled in time, and lo and behold some accounts get compromised. In this demo, you will see how Cloud SIEM Enterprise can quickly and easily detect unusual or unauthorized access and identify anomalous behavior--significantly reducing the risk to your company.

Compliance made easy

Discover new ways to leverage Sumo Logic to assist your organization with achieving compliance toward cyber security frameworks, including NIST 800-53/171, HIPAA, ISO 27001, NIST CMMC, PCI-DSS, and SOX.
