Sumo Logic announced the acquisition of JASK Labs, a provider of cloud-native autonomous security operations center (ASOC) software.

The acquisition brings together Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform, including its cloud SIEM and security compliance solutions, with JASK’s ASOC offering to deliver a leading cloud-native security intelligence solution built for today’s digital businesses that leverage modern applications, architectures and multi-cloud infrastructures.

“Security in the modern world is moving from a human-scale problem to a machine-scale problem,” said Ramin Sayar, President and CEO of Sumo Logic. “Customers are looking for a new approach to help them overcome the pain and complexity around an increasingly perimeter-less world. The JASK team are experts in helping customers navigate this new world. By aligning our efforts as a single team, we are able to democratize security intelligence for all.”
Cloud Disrupts a Mature Security Market

The Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform helps democratize security intelligence across hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures as well as teams building and securing digital transformation initiatives. The platform delivers elastic scale for securing highly dynamic workloads, on-demand security analytics capacity and deployment agility, enabling new horizontal, collaborative and scalable workflows across security, IT and other lines of business.

JASK ASOC improves workflows for security analysts by addressing alert fatigue and automating these repetitive tasks. ASOC integrates with Sumo Logic’s cloud SIEM to further transform security alerts into actionable insights in order to allow analysts to identify and respond to incidents faster and more efficiently.

As part of Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform, the company will expand its security intelligence portfolio with the launch of the Sumo Logic ASOC solution, as well as a Spec Ops offering for threat hunting, which is expected to be available by the end of the year. Delivered as a service, at cloud scale, these solutions enable the linkage of upstream emerging DevSecOps models with the downstream SOC workflows, closing the loop for adaptive cloud scale defense. Sumo Logic ASOC will join the company’s two other security intelligence offerings including cloud SIEM and security compliance.

“The team at JASK set out to fundamentally disrupt traditional security solutions that are no longer meeting the needs of modern security teams,” said Greg Martin, CEO of JASK. “Over the past five years, we’ve worked with customers and experts on the front lines of this disruption to uncover what will truly have an impact on improving the performance of security analysts that have been mired with alert fatigue. We’re excited to bring together our collective security DNA and joint customers and partners to create a powerful security intelligence solution that provides a cloud-native best-in-class modern SOC and analytics solution.”

The acquisition broadens Sumo Logic’s portfolio as well as a rich joint ecosystem of customers and partners including MSPs, MDRs and VARs, while accelerating the companies’ mutual strategy to deliver the automation needed to reduce the noise for security teams and help them modernize the SOC. Greg Martin was named Vice President and General Manager of the Sumo Logic security business unit. The addition of JASK’s employees will bolster Sumo Logic’s security engineering talent and domain expertise, as well as adding Austin, Texas to the growing roster of offices around the world.
