It is well suited in environments where there is a high mail traffic to handle. [Cofense] Vision basically journals the exchange server and keeps a copy of the mail received in the environment. Really beneficial to revoke and quarantine the mail reported by one user, but footprint is there in other mailboxes as well. Less appropriate in the cases where there is no proper segregation of duties within the organization. As it is possible to see contents of the mail. Only authorized personnel should be able to use it.

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 AutoQuaratine prevents in advance and eliminates possible malicious emails from users' inboxes. [Cofense Vision] optimizes protection against any phishing attack. It is simple, friendly and easy to use. [Cofense Vision provides] super detailed analysis reports. 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 Its cost can be somewhat high when it comes to a small business, so it is perfectly suited to medium or large companies. It can throw problems when it comes to migrating said tool in the different versions of an email. Its configuration is simple, but it is important to fully understand its operation to give adequate responses to possible threats. It would be ideal if it could be integrated with your platform. 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 Usability
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.

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.

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.

Apple of Discord is the pricing as we were looking for an email security tool in reasonable pricing and Barracuda was undoubtedly efficient in action and was compatible with our business but it was highly expensive and then we made up our mind for another tool and Cofense Vision was offering almost the same as Barracuda but cheaper.

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 Many Phishing attacks are identified and prevented in an instant. Classification of activity helps analysts search and find which emails pose a larger threat. User interface and learning is simple and easy to use. 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
