Sumo Logic Successfully Completes SOC 2 Examination

Report Validates Log Management and Analytics Leader's Focus on Enterprise-Grade Security, Confidentiality, and Privacy of Customer Data

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - Sumo Logic, the next-generation log management and analytics company, today announced that it successfully completed a Type 1 Service Organization Control (SOC) examination on Aug. 24, 2012. The examination certifies that the company meets the highest standards of security, confidentiality and availability. The examination underscores the Sumo Logic commitment to delivering the industry's most advanced, secure and reliable log management and analytics service, enabling enterprises globally to derive operational and business insights from Big Data in real-time.

SOC 2 is based on Trust Services Principles and Criteria, which, according to the Assurance Services Executive Committee with the American Institute of CPA (AICPA) "helps differentiate entities from their competitors by demonstrating to stakeholders that the entities are attuned to the risks posed by their environment and equipped with the controls that address those risks." Reviews are based on internationally accepted best practices.

"At Swipely, it's paramount that we maintain secure and confidential data for our merchant customers," said Bright Fulton, Swipely's Operations Lead. "By completing the SOC 2 examination, Sumo Logic validates that they rigorously maintain the integrity and confidentiality of customer data. We are pleased to be working with Sumo Logic, and to use their service as we help local merchants accept payments, track customers, and grow revenue."

Sumo Logic enables enterprises to transform log and other machine data into operational and business intelligence in real-time. The company leverages the cloud to eliminate operational overhead, improve scalability, deepen analytics, and lower TCO traditionally associated with costly and complex on-premise solutions.

"Security is baked into the DNA of the Sumo Logic offering. By meeting these stringent SOC 2 criteria for customer security, confidentiality and data integrity, we are sending a clear message about the readiness of our cloud-based log management and analytics service for the enterprise," said Bruno Kurtic, founding vice president of Product Management and Strategy, Sumo Logic. "This is another point of validation of how the Sumo Logic architecture meets the needs of the most demanding enterprise environments."

As part of the SOC 2 examination, Sumo Logic was evaluated against three Trust Services Principles, which reviewed controls over the security, availability and processing integrity:

  • Security - The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
  • Availability - The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
  • Confidentiality - Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed.

Completion of the SOC 2 Type 1 examination comes following a thorough review process of Sumo Logic's security architecture, business processes and policies. The company's solution, which is also US-EU Safe Harbor certified, runs only in PCI, FISMA, ISO 27001, and FIPS 140-2 certified data centers, and offers the highest levels of security, including end-to-end encryption with keys rotated daily, white-list only access controls, and multi-factor authentication.

The examination and service auditing was performed by an independent CPA firm, BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc.
