SumoLogic is a fantastic log aggregator and analysis tool, a fine alternative to
. Searching is powerful and mostly intuitive and results come fast. If you have application logs in clusters or Kubernetes pods that lose their logs every time they're restarted, Sumo is the solution for you
Read full review Pros The option to deploy it as a virtual machine in a UCS-E inside a Cisco Router is something to consider a lot. It simplifies a lot the deployment in places where you need to optimize resources and keep things simple. It also saves some money on unnecessary hardware. Having the most complete license, we can have in the same box IPS, inspection for malware and URL filtering. As Cisco uses Talos Intelligence network to mitigate and evaluate risks, having this complete set of security features turns the box into a powerful resource to protect our remote locations. Considering the hyper-connected business we have today, it's almost impossible to think that we can run a business without this kind of protection. The integration between Firepower NGIPS and other products, like Cisco ISE and Splunk, is also a key feature for this solution. In both cases, you can integrate the product to have the best of both. As a security appliance, it's very important for us to have all the logs centralized in Splunk and this is done simply connecting FMC (Firepower Management Console) to the Splunk collector. Read full review Sumo Logic allowed for our InfoSec team to ingest logs from our CDN directly, in real-time, instead of massive compressed archives that were sent every two-hours (the only alternative at the time). Sumo Logic had an app for these logs, that allowed us to easily get an immediate payoff from the data, with canned dashboard and saved searches. Sumo Logic has a fairly extensive REST API when it comes to log sources, source configurations, dashboard data, searches, etc. Their wiki for the API is usually kept up to date. Sumo Logic, during the period of time I had used their product, had added the ability to configure agents via configuration files. This allowed customers to configure their endpoints, and modify the endpoints, with configuration management tools like Chef / Puppet / Salt. Beforehand, the only option was to always make changes either via the web portal or REST API. The solutions engineers were extremely helpful, and easily reachable when issues would occur. Users at our company found it easy to get started, working on new dashboards, scheduled searches, and alerting. The alerting worked well with our third-party paging tool. Read full review Cons Wish additional modules were included such as FireAmp. Wish it was easier to include customized signatures if needed. Required to know how to code with Snort in order to add real customization. Read full review I like the help center, but I think if it had more GUI tools, it could help new users. Pulling out data is sometimes hard to read, (Maybe if I knew how to export data better, this would not be an issue for me). I would like better know-how on how to create reports that will help our business. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We are in the middle of outsourcing and may not be able to keep this product.

Very easy to navigate GUI in the FMC and very effective at performing the intending duties.

Sumo Logic is very powerful but definitely requires some configuration work to get the most out of it. You can get a certification related to this, but it is definitely not something you can just throw together.

We didn't have any major issues that let us need support. Only, for this reason, I think Cisco Firepower deserves the rating. Even for small issues, the partner that helped us during the project could solve it quickly. There are also tons of documents and other online resources to help maintain, administer and support the product.

I would give this rating because I attended a free Sumo Logic training at a WeWork in Chicago. I found the training very useful, and I learned a lot of features that I was not aware of before I went to the training. I like the idea that SumoLogic provides free training seminars. I am certified in level1, and I plan on certifying to level2.
Read full review Implementation Rating
I was satisfied with the implementation, as at the time, it was the best way to implement the product with the available feature sets in Sumo Logic. User creation and management became more of an issue during continued use, instead of it being an issue related to deploying the product in our environment.

Cisco Secure IPS is our first product. We were not using any other tools before. We are very happy with the Cisco Secure IPS features and customer support

Sumo Logic works very well out of the gate. For a small business it has given us what we need. I worked at a larger company previously, and we produced so many logs we had to create a custom logging service to handle them all. Cost and availability are big issues when deciding between the different services, whether self maintained and hosted, or provided by another company.

I've assisted several OneLogin customers with partner accounts to Sumo Logic. It has always been pleasant.
Read full review Return on Investment Has made it much easier to determine when incidents have occurred Has been effective in reducing false positives and making solution management more efficient and cost effective Read full review I can't think of any negative side effects other than it being SO slow sometimes, but compared to Splunk everything is slow It's SO much cheaper than Splunk that the time it takes to query information is well worth it In the times that we've had Sumo go down or stop logging information, we've found that we'd be absolutely lost without Sumo Read full review ScreenShots
