CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY
Threat detection and investigation — see the risks that matter the most
Get the visibility security analysts need to address advanced threats before they impact operations. Monitor, alert and analyze data in real-time across your security tools, cloud infrastructures and SaaS applications to quickly investigate and respond to cyber threats.
Explore managed threat detection and investigation
Threat detection that scales
Store all your structured and unstructured logs and security events in a single security data lake. Our cloud-native platform easily accommodates spikes in ingest and delivers full visibility of unknown threats from a central secured location.
Streamline your workflows with our extensive catalog of 200+ out-of-the-box integrations. Each one includes pre-built queries and customizable dashboards to help you quickly collect and explore logs and security activity data across all your security tools and environments.
Increase the velocity and accuracy of threat detection by correlating your logs with integrated threat intelligence data powered by CrowdStrike. Outsmart cyber threat actors with near real-time visualizations of indicators of compromise (IoCs) across your cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments.
Investigations that don’t slow you down
Configure robust alerting policies using Sumo Logic Monitors to track critical logs and get real-time notifications when changes or outliers occur.
Accelerate your threat hunting and quickly perform extensive threat investigations of logs, security events and suspicious activity using granular field expressions and search operators against your indexed and optimized data.
Automated AWS threat benchmarking
Improve your AWS security posture, spot impacted resources and see how your attack surface compares to your peers with ML-powered community analytics. Sumo Logic Global Intelligence for Amazon GuardDuty and AWS CloudTrail apps include pre-configured dashboard visualizations for global threat baselines and real-time threat detections across your AWS environments.
Why is application security important?
Application security is crucial for several reasons:
Protecting sensitive data from a cybersecurity threat
Preventing financial losses from a threat actor
Safeguarding user trust and reputation by bolstering response capabilities
Compliance with regulations
Minimizing downtime and business disruption from a MITRE ATTCK, API attacks, network threats, an insider threat, known threat, or potential threat
Proactive risk management to reduce the likelihood of security incidents and their potential impact.
What application security best practices should organizations expect from vendors?
When evaluating vendors for application security, organizations should expect them to adhere to the following best practices:
Secure development practices that include following secure coding standards, conducting thorough code reviews, performing security testing, and addressing vulnerabilities throughout the development process.
Regular security updates and patches to address any identified vulnerabilities.
Security testing and validation, including vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, and code reviews, to identify and address potential security flaws in their applications.
Secure default configurations out-of-the-box
Encryption and data protection to protect sensitive data both in transit and at rest.
Authentication and access controls for their applications, including multi-factor authentication (MFA) and role-based access control (RBAC), to ensure appropriate access privileges.
Secure integration capabilities.
Incident response and transparency to address security incidents and security threats promptly and effectively.
Compliance with security standards and regulations
Comprehensive security capabilities, including attack detection, anomaly detection, behavioral analytics, API attack detection, endpoint detection and network detection.
What differentiates Sumo Logic threat detection and investigation from other solutions?
Here are some differentiating factors that set Sumo Logic apart from other solutions:
Cloud-native architecture: Sumo Logic is built on a cloud-native architecture, which means it is purpose-built for the cloud and designed to handle large-scale, high-velocity data ingestion without infrastructure management.
Log and machine data analytics: Sumo Logic specializes in analyzing and correlating log and machine data from various sources, including systems, applications, network devices, and cloud services.
Real-time threat intelligence feeds and leverages machine learning algorithms, enriching security event data for more accurate and proactive threat detection.
Anomaly detection and behavioral analytics: Sumo Logic applies advanced analytics techniques, including machine learning and behavioral analytics, to detect anomalies and identify suspicious patterns of activity. It establishes baselines for normal behavior and alerts security teams when deviations or unusual activities are detected, helping to identify potential threats or insider attacks.
Comprehensive data correlation and investigation that allows security teams to connect security events across different data sources.
Automated threat detection and incident response that automate the detection of security events, generates real-time alerts and triggers predefined workflows for incident response, enabling faster and more efficient incident resolution.
Collaboration and SOC integration: Sumo Logic supports collaboration among security teams by providing centralized dashboards, shared workspaces, and incident management features. It facilitates integration with Security Operations Centers (SOCs) and existing security toolsets, enabling seamless workflows and information sharing for effective threat detection and response.
Compliance and audit support with pre-built compliance dashboards, reports, and log analysis capabilities that assist in demonstrating adherence to security standards and regulations.
