IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Sumo Logic Security Primary Use Case

Director Of Engineering at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

We've got it integrated into all of our production assets and our IT assets, like Okta and all the SaaS stuff that we need to manage our IT environment. It's plugged into pretty much everything.

Primarily, we use it for security alerting. We plug it into Amazon and it lets us know when people log into different accounts, change privileges, log into production, etc. We also have it integrated on the IT side too — we have it integrated into our SSO provider. We want to know if someone logs in too many times or how frequently they try to log in, whether they get locked out or not. It generates alerts. We're starting to roll it out in terms of forensics on our audit logs.

Company-wide, if it is part of our certification process, if we buy a SaaS service, it has to integrate with a SIM — it has to provide audit logs. There are a couple of other criteria that we have: it's got to have a split SSO, it has to have a supported SIM, and it's got to support audit logs. All the read-only audit logs get dumped into Sumo Logic as well, and the security team monitors all of that.

Our DevSecOps team mainly uses this solution.
