REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sumo Logic, the leading cloud-native, machine data analytics platform that delivers continuous intelligence, today announced a new certification level focused on security analytics as part of its existing certification program. The Sumo Security User certification will be available to all Sumo Logic users as part of Sumo Logic’s upcoming Illuminate user conference, taking place Sept. 12-13, 2018 in Burlingame, Calif.
A recent survey indicates 80 percent of enterprises are frustrated with outdated security tools and are looking for new security solutions to help with transitions to the cloud, modern application architectures and with overall digital transformation. A significant number of customers are using Sumo Logic’s cloud-native security analytics solution to solve problems legacy security tools have failed to address.
Sumo Logic’s multi-level certification program provides its more than 50,000 users with the knowledge, skills and competencies to harness the power of machine data analytics and maximize investments in the Sumo Logic platform. The new Sumo Security User certification will help users learn how to leverage Sumo Logic's centralized security monitoring, threat detection, correlation and alert investigation capabilities across all the phases of the security operations workflow.
The Sumo Logic certification program now includes four levels of certification – Pro User, Power User, Power Admin and Sumo Security User — and are based on the level of usage and expertise of the Sumo Logic platform. Specifically:
“The threat landscape is only growing bigger by the day, and organizations are looking for disruptive security analytics platforms like Sumo Logic that provide unique cloud-native solutions, which converge detection and investigation workflows across silos in the typical defense,” said Dean Thomas, vice president of customer success, Sumo Logic. “We’re very excited to launch our new Sumo Security User certification as it will give our users the hands-on knowledge to adapt and accelerate the cloud, application and digital transformation transitions that characterize modernizing IT.”
