A Challenger in the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Information and Event Management

Challenge accepted!

In the high-stakes world of cybersecurity, complacency can spell disaster. At Sumo Logic, we don’t just adapt to the evolving threat landscape; we redefine it.

Sumo Logic was recognized as a Challenger in the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Information and Event Management. This recent positioning reflects our Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.

We believe this isn't just a recognition. Challenge accepted!

In 2021 and 2022, Sumo Logic was recognized as a Visionary. We believe our placement as a Challenger this year underscores our growth in executing our vision and our tangible impact on the cybersecurity landscape, actively driving and defining the advancements in the SIEM market.

Executing on promises

Our platform doesn't just meet modern enterprise needs; it exceeds them, reshaping expectations for what a SIEM solution should deliver. While there may be a landscape of three-letter acronyms (EDR, NDR, XDR) all claiming to know what is next, it is worth noting that they have yet to be vetted by the SIEM category.

Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM #1 for the future

Our cloud-native architecture, robust execution capabilities, innovative security analytics, and global operational scale are at the heart of all our achievements. These pillars reflect our proactive approach to addressing complex security challenges in a digital-first world. By continuously enhancing these core aspects, Sumo Logic delivers unparalleled security solutions that empower businesses to stay ahead of threats while ensuring optimal performance and scalability.

  1. Cloud-native leadership: the foundation of our customer success

  2. While our competitors are busy retrofitting outdated systems to mimic cloud capabilities, Sumo Logic was born in the cloud. This isn't just about keeping up; it’s about leading a revolution in cybersecurity. Our cloud-native architecture isn’t merely a technical advantage—it's a strategic onslaught against legacy systems that too often leave enterprises lagging in agility, scalability, and security.

  3. Innovative security analytics: staying ahead of threats

  4. Innovation at Sumo Logic goes beyond enhancement—it's about pioneering. Our AI-driven Insight Trainer isn't just another feature; it's a game changer in threat detection, slashing false positives and turning the tide against sophisticated cyber threats. By harnessing advanced machine learning, we go beyond responding to threats — we anticipate them, giving our clients an unmatched edge. Sumo Logic's commitment to innovation is evident in our advanced security analytics and AI-driven alerting capabilities.

    Furthermore, our comprehensive support for the MITRE ATT&CK framework provides valuable investigation context, helping organizations understand their attack surface and respond more effectively to threats.

  5. Not just global, globally dominant

  6. Sumo Logic’s expanding global footprint and stringent security certifications like FedRAMP-moderate aren't just credentials—they are testimony to our reliability and trustworthiness in a world that demands uncompromising security standards. We are becoming the preferred choice for global enterprises who won’t settle for less.

    We are actively enhancing our compliance features to meet our customers' evolving needs better. Our commitment to compliance is underscored by our FedRAMP certification, HIPAA, PCI, SOC2 Type 2, and ISO 27001 attestations.

    Additionally, Sumo Logic provides highly customizable reporting capabilities that enable organizations to tailor their compliance monitoring and reporting to specific industry standards and regulations. This flexibility ensures that, even as our OOTB offerings are refined, our clients are fully equipped to achieve and demonstrate compliance effectively.

  7. Seamless integration and user-centric design: enhancing usability

  8. Our platform is designed to dismantle barriers, seamlessly integrating with a wide array of security and observability tools and data sources to provide a unified single source of truth. By enhancing collaboration across IT teams, our intuitive interface and simplified workflows enable the SecOps methodology to thrive. It allows security features to be incorporated early in the development cycle, aligning with DevSecOps principles to ensure that applications are secure by design without sacrificing performance.

    Where many fail to deliver, we excel, our users spend less time navigating systems and more time safeguarding their enterprises. We've designed our system with this consideration by focusing on delivering a highly secure, consolidated, and efficient search experience within our native ecosystem. This approach minimizes potential security risks and performance bottlenecks often associated with spanning across disparate external data systems.

    Sumo Logic transforms the SecOps experience by focusing on usability, enabling teams to focus on strategic security initiatives rather than getting bogged down by complex tool navigation. This revolutionary approach enhances operational efficiency and solidifies our platform as a leader in redefining how security and operations collaborate in the modern enterprise.
