Facing a tight compliance deadline during the POC stage, the NAB team immediately saw value in Sumo Logic and its main goal of empowering modern SOC teams. The POC allowed them to use a SIEM for its purpose: automatically detect threats, triage alerts, and efficiently perform threat hunting and investigation workflows.
Enterprise SOCs are becoming a crucial part of most organizations’ management departments due to the increase in digitization and interconnectivity. SOCs play a major role in monitoring, managing, and responding to security alerts within a company's daily operations. Since cyber attacks have become more sophisticated, the requirements for SOCs have changed due to increased volumes of data, the complexity of security ecosystem tools, and increased data sources and attack vectors. When it comes to efficiency, SOCs need to expand their focus beyond log management and data analytics to include more advanced functionalities such as automation, leveraging big data and AI for intelligent decision support, and increasing visibility into their product through observability.
