Modernize Security Operations
Don’t let blind spots be your weak spot
Speed up incident investigations by automatically triaging alerts and correlating threats through log analytics. Broaden visibility across your on-prem, cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
Revolutionize your security.
The better SIEM solution is here.
Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM provides security analysts and SOC managers with enhanced visibility across the enterprise to thoroughly understand the scope and context of an attack. Streamlined workflows automatically triage alerts to detect known and unknown threats faster.
Reduce the noise
Does your security team need to align when it comes to critical threats? Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM combines event management with an interactive heads-up display to deliver threat intelligence and analytics to prioritize alerts.
Cloud SIEM parses, maps and creates normalized records from your structured and unstructured data and correlates detected threats to reduce log events.
Signals and Insights
Reduce alert fatigue with our Insight Engine, which aligns with the MITRE ATT&CK framework. Its adaptive Signal clustering algorithm automatically groups related Signals, accelerating alert triage. Once the aggregated risk surpasses a threshold, it automatically generates an Insight to help you focus on the threats that matter most.
User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)
SIEM correlation rules aren’t enough. Identify a potential security threat based on user and Entity behavior. With Sumo Logic’s UEBA features, you can report deviations from baseline user and Entity behavior, assign risk ranking and prioritize with smart Entity Timelines.
Entity Relationship Graph
Investigating threats in isolation is hard. View and explore how Entities are connected via a panoramic visualization to see the full scope and breadth of a cyber breach. Reduce mean time to respond (MTTR) with visibility into related Signals and Insights.
Built-in automation and playbooks
Automatically add context to alerts through enrichment and notification actions, using playbooks to quickly prioritize, investigate and better understand potential security threats.
Choose from hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations and playbooks — or write your own. Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Automation Service allows you to execute playbooks manually or automatically when an insight is created or closed.
The advantage of Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM technology
Modernize your security operation center (SOC). Save four hours per security threat investigation while reducing false positives by 90%. 1
Go beyond prioritized alerts. Accelerate threat hunting with actionable Insights enriched with user and network context.
Scale as needed. Our SIEM provides multi-tenant scaling and elasticity to deliver SOC efficiency for security teams.
Single, collaborative SIEM platform
Centralize security log management for all SecOps, ITOps and DevOps users — helping to consolidate tools.
Modern SecOps workflows
Our purpose-built security interface integrates deep search with streamlined workflows for security analysts and SOC managers.
Secure your hybrid cloud adoption and digital transformation efforts with cloud-native collection and detection across new threat surfaces.
Rapid time to value
Quick SIEM deployment with hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations and content rules in an intuitive platform that’s easy to learn.
What is Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)?
SIEM software combines the capabilities of security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM) tools.
SIM technology collects information from a log consisting of various data types. In contrast, SEM looks more closely at specific types of events.
Together, you can collect, monitor and analyze security-related data from automatically generated computer logs while centralizing computer log data from multiple sources. This comprehensive security solution enables a formalized incident response process.
Typical functions of a SIEM software tool include:
- Collecting, analyzing and presenting security-related data
- Real-time analysis of security alerts
- Logging security data and generating reports
- Identity and access management
- Log auditing and review
- Incident response and security operations
How do SIEM tools work?
SIEM delivers superior incident response and enterprise security outcomes through several key capabilities, including:
Data collection - SIEM tools aggregate event and system logs and security data from various sources and applications in one place.
Correlation - SIEM tools use various correlation techniques to link bits of data with common attributes and help turn that data into actionable information for SecOps teams.
Alerting - SIEM tools can be configured to automatically alert SecOps or IT teams when predefined signals or patterns are detected that might indicate a security event.
Data retention - SIEM tools are designed to store large volumes of log data, ensuring that security teams can correlate data over time and enabling forensic investigations into threats or cyber-attacks that may have initially gone undetected.
Parsing, log normalization and categorization - SIEM tools make it easier for organizations to parse through logs that might have been created weeks or even months ago. Parsing, log normalization and categorization are additional features of SIEM tools that make logs more searchable and help to enable forensic analysis, even with millions of log entries to sift through.
What are some example use cases for SIEM?
Popular SIEM use cases include:
Compliance - Streamline the compliance process to meet data security and privacy compliance regulations. For example, to comply with the PCI DSS, data security standards for merchants that collect credit card information from their customers, SIEM monitors network access and transaction logs within the database to verify that there has been no unauthorized access to customer data.
Incident response - Increase the efficiency and timeliness of incident response activities. When a breach is detected, SecOps teams can use SIEM software to quickly identify how the attack breached enterprise security systems and what hosts or applications were affected by the breach. SIEM tools can even respond to these attacks through automated mechanisms.
Vulnerability management - Proactively test your network and IT infrastructure to detect and address possible entry points for cyber attacks. SIEM software tools are an important data source for discovering new vulnerabilities, along with network vulnerability testing, staff reports, and vendor announcements.
Threat intelligence - Collaborate closely to reduce your vulnerability to advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day threats. SIEM software tools provide a framework for collecting and analyzing log data that is generated within your application stack. With UEBA, you can proactively discover insider threats.
