Cloud SIEM Enterprise
Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise provides security analysts with enhanced visibility to seamlessly monitor their on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud infrastructures and thoroughly understand the impact and context of an attack. In addition to supporting a wide spectrum of security use cases, including compliance, Sumo Logic fuses analytics and automation to perform security analyst workflows and automatically triage alerts—increasing human efficiencies and enabling analysts to focus on higher-value security functions.
Enterprise security teams average thousands of alerts every single day, but 93% admit they can’t get to them all. This has led to multiple challenges for SOCs (security operations centers) and organizations with only a handful of security experts on staff.
Cloud migration spending is growing at six times the pace of general IT spending. 3 out of 4 security teams agree their cloud infrastructures generate more security alerts than similar on-prem environments. Legacy security tools and SIEMs weren’t built for this cloud transformation and have resulted in more threat visibility gaps than ever before.
Migrating apps to the cloud have shifted the threat landscape and created an explosion of attack surface. In fact, 67% of security professionals said their increase in the number of security alerts stems from new and evolving threats, while 55% blame the increase in their cloud infrastructure.
83% of security teams report their staff experience alert fatigue and 75% determine they’d need to hire three or more analysts to conquer all their daily alerts. But facing an ongoing resource and cybersecurity skills shortage means you can’t hire enough people to address and manually triage all of those alerts.
Organizations need a modern SaaS-delivered SIEM to secure their cloud journey, match the changing attack surface, and bring innovation back to the SOC.
Enterprise SIEM solutions must scale in order to meet data ingestion needs and on-prem SIEM deployments are often under- or over-provisioned. Cloud-based or cloud-hosted SIEM tools are often simple migrations of an on-prem SIEM application’s code with a few modifications. The resulting product doesn’t support the full capabilities of a true cloud-native architecture.
In contrast, Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise is delivered via Sumo Logic’s secure, cloud-native, multi-tenant platform. It provides elastic scalability for all of your on-prem, multi-cloud, and hybrid data sources and automatically scales to collect and analyze data during peak ingestion and bursting periods. As a cloud-neutral SIEM solution, Sumo Logic offers flexibility and freedom for customers to bring in their data, wherever it lives, without fear of vendor lock-in.
Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise applies automation to perform actual security analyst workflows. By automating the analysis and triaging of alerts from millions to billions of normalized records per day to just a handful of actionable Insights, we’re eliminating the noise and improving human efficiencies in your SOC. Instead of delivering thousands of daily security alerts or so-called notable events for your team to manually sift through, Sumo Logic goes a step further. Our Cloud SIEM Enterprise solution automates many of the core analysis steps linking actions in a threat model by looking back at weeks of critical incidents or potential cyber attack activities using our included out-of-the-box content. We also automatically enrich our Insights with additional data sourced from network traffic, user information, and third party threat feeds to provide analysts with greater context as they investigate and respond to incidents.
Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise delivers streamlined security analyst workflows with a highly-tuned, modern user interface that is built by analysts for analysts. Coupled with event management for team collaboration, the system enables your analysts to focus attention on the threats that matter most while they intuitively verify alerts and investigate incidents. Cloud SIEM Enterprise parses, maps, and creates normalized records upon ingestion from your structured and unstructured data, giving analysts full access to rapidly drill down into a record during threat investigations without needing to learn a query language. Analysts can also perform powerful full text searches against all of their non-normalized data using Sumo Logic’s platform. This is especially useful when you need to acquire deeper context on what else a particular user, entity, application, or process is doing across your enterprise and cloud environments.
“Using Cloud SIEM Enterprise, BHG has improved the efficiency and efficacy of security operations. Their support model has surpassed the typical and is more like a partnership than a typical support vendor.”
“We initially chose Cloud SIEM Enterprise because following a very rapid and easy POC we saw that we could reduce our SIEM alert volume by about 90% without missing a single critical event. Cloud SIEM Enterprise is great at improving the signal to noise ratio while creating and adding additional context for the analyst that we have been able to indefinitely defer a planned SOAR project.”
“We have an incredible amount of data to analyze, and it’s essential for us to be able to identify the events that matter as quickly as possible. The Cloud SIEM Enterprise platform provides our team with the visibility and automation needed to increase our agility, while allowing us to get more out of our existing tools and remain flexible as we scale.”
Insights represent the intelligent, correlated, and prioritized clustering of signals and other data enrichments for analysts to immediately investigate. Insights dramatically decrease validation and investigation times by presenting an automatically generated storyline of potential security incidents containing all of the relevant context analysts require to make rapid response decisions.
Signals are a collection of alerts, identified through pattern and threat intelligence matching, correlation logic, statistical evaluation, and anomaly detection. This is how Cloud SIEM Enterprise filters millions of raw records down to thousands of signals in near real-time every day.
Cloud SIEM Enterprise Insights are generated by the Adaptive Signal Clustering (ASC) engine using principles modeled on the actions of world-class SOC analysts to group related signals worthy of human review. This provides analysts with the identification and context of an attack and its movements, including multiple low-severity Signals that often fly below the radar. ASC engine algorithms are continuously improved as customers identify patterns, validate signals and Insights, or add new searches—thereby increasing confidence levels and benefiting all Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise users.
Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise includes collectors beyond just logs. Our open-source Zeek network security monitor performs deep packet inspection and reassembles network traffic flows into rich protocol-level network sessions, extracted files, and security context. Using the Cloud SIEM Enterprise console, analysts can see raw network traffic details, related connections and protocol activity, and gain visibility into East/West network traffic. Cloud SIEM Enterprise collects asset information for users and devices—including info natively from Active Directory—to deliver additional context like anomalous activities by users and devices. Cloud SIEM Enterprise's deep library of native cloud API integrations can pull security telemetry directly from sources (e.g., Carbon Black, Okta, AWS GuardDuty, Office 365) simply using an API key.
Here are five specific situations where customers are applying Cloud SIEM Enterprise to modernize their security operations.
Automating the analysis and correlation of threats across all alerts and related events, without sampling, to surface actual critical incidents that require your immediate attention
Expediting analyst workflows by automating data collection, correlation, and alert prioritization to support investigations with robust search capabilities and connectivity to your existing response platforms (e.g., Demisto, ServiceNow)
Using our security experts to help support and train your existing staff, or be an extension of your SecOps team while we continually assess your data for the latest advanced attacks and emerging threats
Correlating data across users, entities, and network provides additional context for your analysts’ investigations while deep packet inspection yields visibility into your network traffic (and AWS via VPC traffic mirroring with our network sensor)
Leveraging Cloud SIEM Enterprise as a fully-managed data lake with unencumbered search access for your security team’s threat hunting, or your data science team’s fact-finding activities
