Why Sumo Logic for Security And Compliance?
Simplify Compliance Management
Easily maintain compliance with centralized logging, continuous monitoring, and automated retention policies. Quickly search through massive amounts of security log data to investigate incidents or satisfy ad hoc requests.
Real-time Monitoring and Alerts
Monitor key security metrics and indicators of compromise (IOCs) in real-time to rapidly identify and resolve problems. Detect outliers, abnormal log patterns, and user activity that deviates from normal behavior to keep your entire stack secure.
Security Analytics vs. Traditional SIEM
Fending off sophisticated, modern-day threats requires an intelligent security system. Leave behind predefined rules and get more data on your security events so you can ward off known and unknown threats to your cloud ecosystem.
Stronger Security and Comprehensive Compliance
Sumo Logic provides real-time insights for streamlined compliance and security. Our platform allows you to meet compliance deadlines more easily, reduce security risks, identify potential security breaches, and neutralize new threat patterns.
With security analytics from Sumo Logic, you can transform reactive, manual processes into integrated, proactive, and automated ones. Security teams can shift their focus back to high-value strategic initiatives and innovations, and the result is a more proactive and comprehensive security posture.
The Sumo Logic platform provides:
- Automated security, compliance, and cloud audits
- Complete visibility across hybrid environments
- Proactive analytics powered by machine learning
Move Beyond Traditional SIEM
Traditional SIEM systems rely on fixed rule sets and known threats to maintain security—but is that enough for today’s dynamic cloud environment?
Organizations are accelerating the pace at which they roll out new code and leveraging containers, micro-services, and DevOps—and the legacy architecture of on-premise SIEM is their Achilles’ heel.
Something new is required. Modern organizational security must be cloud-native and elastic. It must deliver rapid time to value and deliver insights beyond the constraints of fixed rule sets and known threats. It must use machine learning algorithms to uncover anomalies and deviations, and it must integrate threat intelligence to increase speed and accuracy of threat detection.
Detect Threats and Breaches Faster
No longer a “nice-to-have,” threat intelligence is a mandatory part of your security infrastructure. Threat intelligence tools help stop breaches and detect indicators of compromise (IOCs) across your application and infrastructure stack.
Increase the velocity and accuracy of threat detection so your IT teams can determine what is noise vs. true security events. Use machine learning and automation to help your teams focus on the highest-impact threats and quickly respond to mitigate the damage of cyberattacks.
Correlate log data with known IOCs. Match your log data with threat intelligence data to identify and visualize malicious IP addresses, domain names, email addresses, URLs, MD5 Hashes, and more.
Sumo Logic is the first to offer multi-tenant SaaS security analytics with integrated threat intelligence. Our adversary analysis and threat intelligence tools are baked into enterprise security offerings, giving you the data you need to make informed decisions about your security infrastructure.
Cloud Security Monitoring for SaaS Applications
For many organizations, Office 365, Salesforce.com, and other SaaS-based applications are an entry point into cloud computing—and with it, cloud security. As organizations migrate sensitive and business-critical data to the cloud, it becomes extremely important to understand what technologies are being deployed and what users are accessing, sharing, and modifying.
Sumo Logic’s cloud-native data analytics service delivers continuous visibility into cloud applications, enhancing security and compliance initiatives. This gives users the freedom they desire, while giving IT the visibility it needs to do business securely, monitor cloud productivity apps, and manage internal and external audits.

AWS Cloud Security by Sumo Logic
Sumo Logic works seamlessly with AWS for enhanced cloud security monitoring, providing the real-time visualization you need to quickly identify problems, detect root causes, and resolve cloud-based security threats.
Sumo Logic provides a range of AWS-specific apps to facilitate deep visibility across the AWS cloud environment and integrated services for a comprehensive view. These allow you to see who is accessing AWS and when they make changes (CloudTrail), what they change (Config), where this impacts network traffic and latency (VPC Flow), and how this affects your security and compliance posture (Inspector).
Continuously monitoring workloads, user access, and configuration changes in real-time improves visibility across both hybrid cloud environments and on-premise infrastructures.

- Identify the ports and protocols typically used.
- Receive alerts based on behavioral changes.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to improve and homogenize data protections within the European Union (EU), giving citizens greater control over their personal data. However, the scope of GDPR extends to not only EU-based organizations, but also to international companies that process data within the EU.
Sumo Logic has received the highest possible GDPR readiness rating from Netskope, the leader in cloud security, as of Dec. 6, 2017. Sumo Logic’s data storage, encryption, and data processing standards earned a High readiness rating—despite the bulk of cloud service providers not being GDPR-ready.
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.
