Proofpoint, Sumo Logic Start November with Big Acquisitions
…a reputation as a visionary solution provider for insider threat solutions. We are confident our channel partners will continue to succeed as we continue to innovate our platform and leverage our new reach and support to accelerate growth as the insider threat management leader.”
ObserveIT will operate independently through close of the transaction and 2019, McKee said.
“ObserveIT will then become a focused and distinct product group within Proofpoint with tight coordination and joint initiatives across our channel, sales, marketing, product and engineering groups,” he said.
Ramin Sayar, Sumo Logic’s president and CEO, tells us that Jask provides a “unique and complementary” technology that extends his company’s reach, addressing new SOC analysts’ pains, and accelerates his company’s overall security intelligence strategy.
“The market around cloud SIEM is developing rapidly, and companies are looking for help in how they approach this new ‘cloud-native’ security world,” he said. “What worked for on-premises IT simply doesn’t for these modern applications, infrastructures and architectures, and so new companies are coming in to fill that market gap. Sumo Logic is at the forefront of this and our partner ecosystem of MSPs, MDRs and VARs will also benefit by the acceleration of our joint offerings to market that address cloud and digital transformations.”
The addition of Jask further strengthens Sumo Logic’s direct and partner sales motion, Sayar said.
“We anticipate those partners that made a commitment to Jask [will] join the Sumo Logic channel,” he said. “This will open up more opportunities for them to offer more security and observability solutions to their customers.”
“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, Jask‘s CEO. “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.”
