Sumo Logic Transforms Raw Data Logs Into Wellsprings of Insight and Intelligence

Corporations today are generating data at an incredible rate. In fact, data generation has increased to the point where the average business collects the same amount of data in about 10 minutes as one would have throughout the whole year, just 10 years ago. With this increased influx of data comes the need for successful evaluation of the insights and intelligence that can be harvested from it. Enter Sumo Logic!

Originally launched in April of 2010 by Kumar Saurabh and Christian Beedgen, Sumo Logic provides the resources to leverage big data into a mountain of information vital to the growth and effectiveness of a company. Sumo Logic has received multiple rounds of funding from several investors, including Accel Partners and Sutter Hill Ventures.  Sumo Logic’s services revolve around a few major areas. These include:

Machine Data Analytics

One of the primary issues when it comes to the analysis of machine data is that many times operators are unsure what specifically to ask. Machine-data analysis can be separated into two areas: the questions you know to ask, and those you do not. Sumo Logic’s efficacy comes from combining both human interaction, such as search queries, with machine learning, to present a platform well able to handle these two areas.

Anomaly Detection

Sumo Logic’s Anomaly Detection service analyzes big data and detects and documents any anomalies it comes across. These are presented in an easy-to-read format and are categorized as events for simple research and reference.

LogReduce

With the increase in data generation comes the inevitable need to keep it in a clear and concise format that can easily be referenced for information and anomalies. LogReduce is a patent-pending service that can boil down thousands of pages of data into one central page of meaningful information.

Security DNA

Data security is always a concern when dealing with outside companies for assistance in management and intelligence gathering. Sumo Logic not only takes security seriously, they actually incorporate it into every aspect of their product platform.sumo-logic

This includes separating each customer’s data and securing it using customer-specific rotating keys. In addition, only employees specifically earmarked with a need to access production clusters are allowed to do so. Employees must provide multiple authentications and successfully pass security certifications and examinations.

Big data continues to grow at a geometric rate with each passing year, making the gleaning of insights and intelligence from it much more difficult. Sumo Logic recognizes these obstacles and is poised to deliver effective solutions at an affordable price.
