Sumo Logic to accelerate modernization of security operations with proposed acquisition of DFLabs

At Sumo Logic, our belief is that security operations is no longer a human scale problem. We need tools and technologies to aid our defenders and responders to be able to process, investigate and respond at machine speed. Our vision for modernizing security operations to deal with threats at machine scale has always encompassed more than just SIEM.

So, I’m excited to announce that we have signed an agreement to acquire a leading security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) company, DF Labs S.p.A. DFLabs SOAR allows customers to fully automate triaging of alerts, incident and threat investigation, threat containment and remediation while orchestrating across all security and IT relevant tools and data. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including certain government approvals in Italy, and is anticipated to close in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

Expanding to cloud-native security operations

Following the closing of the acquisition, we expect that the Sumo Logic Security Intelligence portfolio will include a leading SOAR solution, providing customers with both the analytics, orchestration and automation required to secure, protect modern infrastructure and applications. A modern SOAR, like DFLabs SOAR, combines Security Orchestration, Incident Response and Threat Intelligence capabilities with scalability and enrichment to solve for a wide range of SecOps use cases. We believe the proposed acquisition will strengthen Sumo’s ability to address the challenges of development, operations and security teams from a single continuous intelligence platform.

Significant customer benefits with Cloud SIEM and SOAR

We expect that our security intelligence customers will realize significant value from this acquisition. Customers will have access to a best in class cloud-native security operations solution anchored by Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM and DFLabs leading open SOAR solution to investigate and respond to threats faster while improving SecOps productivity.

Together, we will work to build a combined solution that will offer the following benefits to our customers:

Accelerated visibility from across IT and Security environment
