SIEM and Sumo Logic

Can your SIEM solution handle today’s dynamic cloud environment? 

As organizations are moving workloads to the cloud, accelerating the pace at which they roll our new code, leveraging containers, micro-services and DevOps, the legacy architecture of on-premise SIEM solutions are their Achilles’ heel. Something new is required – cloud native, elastic and secure – delivering rapid time to value. A solution free from the constraints of SIEM fixed rule sets going after known threats but instead, leveraging machine learning algorithms to uncover anomalies, deviations and unknown threats in the environment. And a solution that integrates threat intelligence out-of-the-box to increase velocity and accuracy of threat detection – so you can get a handle on threats coming at your environment trying to compromise your applications and data.

With Sumo Logic, you can take your organization’s SIEM to the next level, into the cloud, and into Security Analytics.

PCI DSS Compliance

Merchants outsourcing transmission, processing, or storage of payment card data to a third-party provider are required to verify that the provider adheres to PCI standards. Sumo Logic has validated compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) version 3.2 as a “Level 1” service provider for its machine data analytics services.

Many merchants and service providers use Sumo Logic to help meet their own PCI compliance requirements, in particular with the log monitoring specifications within Requirement 10 of the DSS.
