Managing the security of your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment requires constant vigilance. Your strategy should include identifying potential threats to your environment and proactively monitoring for vulnerabilities and system weaknesses that malicious actors might exploit. In a complex environment—such as your AWS account with a multitude of services, coupled with various architectures and applications—the ideal solution should be both comprehensive and straightforward.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Martin, vice president and general manager of the Security Business Unit at Sumo Logic, discusses modernization in proper context, what within security ops most needs modernization, and how cloud-based solutions such as SIEM and SOAR drive new approaches.
While we are a long way from implementing Skynet, using machine learning combined with automation to make real-time decisions is here. In a recent talk at Sumo Logic Illuminate, Dave Frampton, General Manager of Cloud SIEM and Security Analytics, discusses the future of security with Vijaya Kaza, Head of Engineering and Data Science for Trust & Safety and Chief Security Officer at Airbnb. Kaza describes how automation, machine learning and AI can strengthen a company's overall security posture.
We’re excited to announce updates to Sumo Logic AWS Quick Start Integrations that enable customers to automate the integration of AWS Security Reference Architecture within Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM powered by AWS. The new integrations automate the collection, ingestion, and analysis of applications, infrastructure, security, and IoT data to derive actionable insights for security engineering teams.
Let’s take a look into why and how you should be closely monitoring your Windows server environments from a security perspective. We’ll investigate the types of logs, events and other actions that you should consider. Finally, we’ll look at how you centralize monitoring into a central dashboard, and automate many of the tedious aspects of Windows security monitoring.
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.
If you have ever wondered about the difference between monitoring and observability, read our ebook to learn how observability goes beyond traditional monitoring to identify the source of a problem. You'll learn the similarities and differences between the two approaches and why DevOps teams need each solution. Find out why observability is definitely more than just a buzzword!
