Sumo Logic launches a new Global Intelligence Service for Amazon GuardDuty, a Machine Data Analysis platform that provides insights that allow customers to compare themselves to other users of Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure, reports BetaNews. They can also improve their cloud security, threat detection and regulatory compliance.

As more applications and data move to the cloud, identifying and prioritizing threats becomes increasingly difficult.

“In today’s hyper-connected world, organizations are facing rapidly evolving business needs that require them to completely rethink the architecture, IT environments and applications that form the backbone of their business,” said Bruno Kurtic, vice president of products and strategy at Sumo Logic. “As a multi-tenant, cloud-native machine data analytics platform, Sumo Logic is uniquely positioned to provide a lot of information, not only on how our customers’ applications and infrastructure behave and perform, but also on how that behavior and performance differs from the best-in-class organizations. This level of understanding helps customers identify unusual patterns, events, and key indicators that affect application performance, as well as critical threats to an organization’s environment, or worse, to that organization’s customers.

Specific organisation profile

The service analyzes globally active threats detected by the Amazon GuardDuty service to provide insights and context into how an organization’s overall threat profile differs from that of industry peers. It also identifies rare or critical threats that operate in the organization’s environment. For example, Sumo Logic can detect threats that rarely occur worldwide, but that do occur within a customer’s environment. Think, for example, of attempts to communicate with malware, or other threats that might otherwise be hidden under a mountain of common activities.
