“Cyber threats continue to evolve rapidly, driving the growing need for organizations to have real-time security intelligence across their environments and have visibility into risky users and malicious activities that negatively impact their business, customers and brand,” said Greg Martin, VP and General Manager, Security Business Unit for Sumo Logic.

The solution by Sumo Logic would deliver value to organizations of various sizes and security maturity with security insights and contextualized threat data over multi-cloud and hybrid environments. It would shorten the time to detect and respond to threats and will be available in two different packages which will depend on the organization’s security operations maturity.

Sumo Logic in collaboration with AWS is working on helping companies to secure their cloud journey.
