The Sumo Logic team is excited to announce that it has been named a Visionary in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Security Information Event Management (SIEM). We believe our placement in the Visionary quadrant reflects the value and success our customers have realized by using our cloud-native security platform and the innovative ways in which it solves SIEM and modern security operations use cases.
Security and IT teams may be loath to admit it, but security has historically been mostly a reactive affair. Security engineers monitored for threats and responded when they detected one. They may have also taken steps to harden their systems against breaches, but they didn’t proactively fight the threats themselves.
Threat hunting is emerging as a must-have addition to cybersecurity strategies. By enabling organizations to find and mitigate threats before they ever touch their networks or systems, threat hunting provides the basis for a more proactive security posture – and one that delivers higher ROI on security tools and processes.
Companies generate data at an exponential rate, and the task of analyzing data to produce relevant security insights can be overwhelming. With evolving market dynamics and threat landscapes, security teams have a greater need for integrated and scalable monitoring that provides real-time and meaningful insights into the state of organizational security posture.
Over the past decade, the way we build and deploy applications has changed dramatically. The explosion of public cloud providers enables us to deploy software without engaging in a drawn-out process to procure and set up infrastructure. Agile, DevOps, Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and other changes to how we work have dramatically accelerated the speed with which we can get new applications and updates in front of our users.
The Sumo Logic team is pleased to introduce the general availability of Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM powered by AWS. This joint solution will empower CIOs, CISOs, security and IT leaders to solve modern and legacy security operations use cases for Enterprises of all sizes and maturity with deep and contextualized insights to reduce the time to detect and respond to threats.
Sumo Logic is excited to host “The Modern SOC Summit” from June 8–9, 2021. This summit is a two-day virtual event hosted by Sumo Logic that is bringing together CISOs, security and operations practitioners, innovators and business leaders to debate, discuss and share best practices on modernizing security operations for the rapidly evolving threat landscape, growing adoption of cloud-native solutions and future state of security.
It's one thing to detect a cyber attack. It's another to know what the attackers are trying to do, which tactics they are using, and what their next move is likely to be. Without that additional information, it's difficult to defend effectively against an attack. You can't reliably stop an attack if you are unable to put yourself in the mindset of the attackers. This is why threat intelligence plays a critical role in modern cybersecurity operations. Threat intelligence delivers the context about attackers' motives and methods that teams need to react as effectively as possible against threats to their IT resources. Keep reading for a primer on what threat intelligence means, why it's important, and what to consider when implementing a threat intelligence strategy.
As more companies migrate workloads to the public cloud, more security operations teams face the challenge of securing those environments. Although cloud providers make accessing the logging very easy, it is not always easy to digest the mountains of data they provide. One example of this is AWS CloudTrail logging. This service is extremely robust which can lead to quite a bit of noise with basic detections.
