Sumo Logic Buys JASK Labs to Tackle SOC Challenges

Sumo Logic plans to integrate JASK's autonomous security operations center software into a new intelligence tool.

Sumo Logic today said it has acquired JASK Labs, provider of cloud-native autonomous security operations center (ASOC) software. It plans to combine Sumo Logic's cloud security information and event management (SIEM) and compliance tools with JASK's ASOC software to create a new security intelligence platform.

JASK was founded in 2015 and has raised a total of $39 million in funding over the course of three rounds. Its ASOC platform aims to improve visibility into on-premises and heterogeneous multicloud environments so analysts can understand the context and impact of a cyberattack. The software also aims to cut down on alert fatigue by automating repetitive tasks. ASOC integrates with Sumo Logic's cloud SIEM to help analysts identify and respond to security alerts.

Sumo Logic plans to use this technology to build out its security intelligence portfolio with a new Sumo Logic ASOC solution, as well as the Spec Ops tool for threat hunting. Both of these will be delivered as a service; the latter is expected to be available by the end of this year.

JASK CEO Greg Martin has been appointed vice president and general manager of the Sumo Logic security business unit. JASK employees will also join Sumo Logic as part of the deal. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed by either company. JASK, which was founded in 2015, has so far raised $39 million over three rounds of funding, Crunchbase reports.

In a survey conducted by Dimensional Research, 93% of security pros report traditional SIEM tools are ineffective in the cloud. Two-thirds identified a need to consolidate and rethink traditional security tools, a demand also driven by an onslaught of alerts, poor visibility across the application stack, and siloed tools and teams needed to effectively operate a modern SOC. Hybrid and multicloud environments often pose a challenge to legacy SIEM technologies.
