Sumo Logic ahead of the packRead article
In the report showcasing "The 14 Providers That Matter Most And How They Stack Up", Sumo Logic was recognized as a strong performer. “Security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities alone are no longer sufficient for security operations teams. Today’s security analytics platforms combine features to enable analytics, investigation, automation, threat hunting, dashboards, and reporting to help security analysts be more effective.” - Allie Mellen, Senior Analyst, Forrester
Moving to the cloud offers more than economics; it comes with unique security challenges that on-premises solutions cannot address. In minutes, Cloud Infrastructure Security for AWS from Sumo Logic brings cloud-native security analytics to AWS cloud environments. Curated workflows, out-of-the-box dashboards and AI-driven anomaly detection help security personnel easily monitor cloud security posture and cloud configurations and manage cloud risk from a centralized platform.
The principles of data protection are the same whether your data sits in a traditional on-prem data center or in a cloud environment. The way you apply those principles, however, are quite different when it comes to cloud security vs. traditional security. Moving data to the cloud introduces new attack-surfaces, threats, and challenges, so you need to approach security in a new way.
In a perfect world, computers would function properly on the network at all times. There would be no issues with the operating system and no problems with the applications. Unfortunately, this isn’t a perfect world. System failures can and will occur, and when they do, it is the responsibility of system administrators to diagnose and resolve the issues. But where can system administrators begin the search for solutions when problems arise? The answer is Windows event logs.
Modern systems look very different than they did years ago. For the most part, development organizations have moved away from building traditional monoliths towards the development of containerized applications running across a highly-distributed infrastructure. While this change has made systems inherently more resilient, the increase in overall complexity has made it more important (and more challenging) to effectively identify and address problems at their root cause when issues occur.
In the continually evolving digital landscape, the importance of effective and efficient logging cannot be overstated. When we journey into the realm of Linux, this rings particularly true. Today, we'll delve into why Linux logging is vital, the challenges customers commonly encounter with it, and how Sumo Logic has emerged as a market leader in providing unparalleled SIEM solutions.
