Westcon, the international technology distributor, and Sumo Logic have announced the signing of an APAC distribution agreement. Sumo Logic is the pioneer in continuous intelligence, helping enterprises make data-driven decisions and reduce time to investigate security and operational issues.
The agreement further strengthens Westcon’s portfolio of DevSecOps offerings, adding Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform™ will provide joint customers with the real-time analytics and insights from a single, cloud-native platform to speed decision-making and drive world-class customer experiences.
As organisations move to embrace cloud computing, they are often faced with more data than it is possible to analyse and handle using legacy tools. The addition of Sumo Logic helps organisations automate the collection, ingestion and analysis of application, infrastructure, security and IoT data to derive actionable insights within seconds.
Among its offerings is a Cloud SIEM solution, a full-stack SIEM that fuses analytics and automation to perform security analyst workflows and automatically triage alerts. With the threat landscape evolving at an unprecedented rate, Sumo Logic helps modernise security operations by automating the manual work for the security analyst, saving them time and enabling them to be more effective by focusing on higher-value security functions.
Patrick Aronson, Executive Vice President of Westcon APAC, said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Sumo Logic across the APAC region. This agreement will give Westcon’s broad network of resellers and partners access to Sumo Logic’s innovations. The Cloud SIEM solution, which is Licensed via a unique credit-based licensing model called Cloud Flex, will provide the most cost-effective way to provide prioritised and contextualised threat data. Our partners are excited about the ways they can leverage Sumo Logic in order to help their customers more informed decisions and reduce the time needed to investigate security and operational issues.”
Aronson continued: “Our expertise in DevOps, Cyber Security and Cloud combined with our trusted reseller channel partnerships across APAC, should help build the foundation for a long and rewarding partnership with Sumo Logic for years to come.”
Mark Veitch, APAC Director of Partner Services at Sumo Logic, said: “The shift to cloud computing and modern app architectures is creating a data deluge that legacy SIEM solutions simply can’t keep up with. Sumo Logic’s cloud-native approach addresses the challenges facing today’s modern SOC to provide the real-time insights and continuous intelligence needed to remove common technology limitations that burden an SOCs efficiency and ability to mitigate risk. We are excited to work with a company with Westcon’s standing and quality of service, and we look forward to working with their broad ecosystem of partners to deliver joint value to our customers.”
