Regional Partners Embrace Cloud-Native Technologies for Security Intelligence and More Powerful Business Models
As India embraces digital transformation, Sumo Logic partners lead the charge to help enterprises that are considering different models to maximize business outcomes. According to a recent 451 Research Market Insight report, India's Digital Transformation: The Future is Now, businesses are recognizing the value derived from technologies such as cloud computing, data analytics, and IoT to better manage risk, improve agility and boost customer satisfaction. Concerns about cyberattacks have become a center of discussion as local businesses accelerate their digital agendas with digitally enabled business processes and services.
Two regional partners explain the security modernization taking place in Mumbai.
“Traditional SIEM solutions give a false sense of security and are ineffective and not relevant to fight the evolved threat landscape, thus setting security operation teams up to fail. Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM is a game-changer, and the availability of this solution in India means that customers can be sure their data remains onshore at all times while providing a rich set of analytics in which security teams can gain valuable insights. As a partner, we’re excited to provide Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM, which will enhance our offering in the marketplace, helping us to address new risk dimensions, and most importantly, effectively secure customer’s IT estates and crown jewels.” - Harsh Marwah, Chief Growth Officer, iValue Infosolutions
“Our SOC consulting assignments have proven that the most critical success factor for an MSSP is the ability to take quick action on threat alerts while eliminating false positives and not drowning in a sea of alerts. Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM provides us the ability to precisely do that with efficiency and time-to-value from onboarding to protection. Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM solution does this by correlating multiple sources to present a single sequence of events, further enriching event data with external sources, which provides a single pane view for rapid analysis. Managing the investigation, analysis and response workflows in a single platform also eliminates repetitive switching between tools to manually compare event data, further improving efficiency and accuracy.” - Jaykrishnan, Director - Technology & Consulting, Tecplix Technologies Pvt ltd.
“Our customers understand the strategic importance of cybersecurity, automation and analytics required to boost security operations and the value it delivers across the enterprise,” said Anant Deshpande, Regional Director and Country Manager for India. “The availability of the Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM solution in India means our customers can now ingest data at scale into the platform while addressing data privacy and data residency requirements. India is digitizing at scale, and the Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform is well-positioned to manage the diverse requirements of our customers. The strategic investment in the Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM is a further affirmation of our commitment to this market.”
