This report provides a unique perspective on trends based on the usage of app architectures, processes, tools and use cases by leading-edge enterprises. The data in this report analyzes the technology adoption from more 2,000 Sumo Logic customers who run massive mission-critical modern applications on cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, as well as hybrid cloud infrastructures.
AWS offers more than 150 discrete services, spanning compute, storage, database, network, and identity management to name a few. Earlier this year we published our Continuous Intelligence Report in which we surveyed Sumo Logic customers on how broadly they used the various AWS services. We found that the median number of different services most orgs use was 15.
Security is a top concern for any enterprise to move their applications and workloads to the public cloud. AWS offers a broad selection of native security tools and as our Continuous Intelligence Report noted, AWS customers are using several of these to improve the security of their AWS environment. However, it can be overwhelming to know where to start and how to deploy best practices for detecting security misconfigurations caused by human errors and attacks from external sources.
Today’s SOC teams are fatigued and under pressure from overwhelming alert volume. Many SOCs were built around legacy solutions designed with SIEM technology invented years, even decades ago. With the threat landscape evolving at an unprecedented rate, SOC teams are limited by these technology restrictions and unable to keep pace with the volume and sophistication of modern attacks.
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to see enterprise IT leaders in a situation that seems like a catch 22. Oftentimes, they are expected to be involved in making data-driven decisions for augmenting productivity and profitability. Paradoxically, they are preoccupied with what they consider as their core responsibilities – applying best practices to safeguard the IT infrastructure and expediting investigations when incidents occur. As practitioners of IT, we must admit that it rings a bell and also chip in with our knowhow.
Never before in history has the concept of identity been so vital. To a large extent, everything we rely on to live our lives depends on who we are… or perhaps more accurately, who we can prove ourselves to be. Our data has come to be the standard by which we define ourselves. Because this identity-defining data is online, the protection of our data is of paramount importance.
Data centers, on-prem deployments, and physical boxes were—for the longest time— the unquestioned standard across Federal agencies. Today, the wave of public cloud deployments seems just as inevitable. Agencies that once adopted a wait-and-see approach are now jumping feet first into the world of public cloud. Entire agencies are realigning their IT teams to deliver capabilities in more nimble, flexible ways.
What a pleasure it was to see many of our customers at our Illuminate user conference, September 11-12. We had record attendance from customers, influencers, and partners. Our time was packed with keynotes, customer presentations (35 customer breakout sessions), certifications, sharing best practices, and time networking and having fun together.
Virtually every organization is a victim of cybercrime today. As the threat landscape evolves and proliferates, it’s necessary to prioritize the protection of data, customers’ privacy and brand reputation. Security directors must be prepared and equipped with the necessary tools to detect security events and address them accordingly at all times. This cannot be achieved without security investigation and correlation, and with the latest technologies, these can be performed at cloud-scale with ease.
From the way the architecture is designed to the way it is priced, Sumo Logic and Splunk Cloud couldn't be more different in their approach. Sumo Logic's multi-tenant, cloud-native solution is designed to respond to the scalability, security, and feature velocity needs of modern organizations. Get the details on where single-tenant solutions fall short and what to look for when planning for a long term monitoring solution.
Serverless computing is becoming more popular as organizations look for new ways to deploy their applications in the cloud. With higher levels of abstraction, easier maintenance, a focus on high performance, and ephemeral workloads, serverless computing solutions like Lambda are finding a permanent place in the mix of cloud infrastructure options.
