Sumo Logic and Zyston Partner to Deliver Secure Remote Workforce Monitoring


REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sumo Logic, the leader in continuous intelligence, today announced a formal partnership with Zyston, a strategic managed security service to provide remote workforce monitoring services delivered through the Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform,™ to give companies full visibility of their security posture and help them effectively manage security and compliance in hybrid environments. By leveraging the real-time security intelligence and insights from Sumo Logic, Zyston can now help customers monitor their remote access technologies and critical collaboration platforms used during this new remote workforce era.

To help consolidate, tune and maintain day-to-day security operations, Zyston clients use Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM to consolidate multiple security services under one platform and gain a unified view of all security events for managing alerts, run analytics for rapid detection of threats, enable deep forensic investigation, and accelerate incident response. In addition, Zyston offers Sumo Logic Cloud SIEM Enterprise to help clients address the challenges facing today’s modern Security Operations Center (SOC). With this offering, Zyston clients can automate the manual work for their security analysts to save time and shift their focus to higher-value work. In addition, SOC teams can use real-time security intelligence and insights to quickly identify evidence of a compromise and improve time to respond to a cyber attack.

Secure Monitoring Solutions for the WFH Era
As part of the partnership, Zyston is leveraging Sumo Logic’s Cloud SIEM as part of its Work-From-Home solutin, to provide a lightweight offering that monitors business-critical apps like Microsoft Office 365, VPN and Zoom to keep employees engaged and productive during the current coronavirus pandemic. 



“As we continue to adapt to the current global health pandemic, many organizations have a majority of their employees working from home to maintain social distancing and safety. Real-time situational awareness is paramount for companies to ensure secure use of remote access VPNs, email, and team collaboration platforms,” said Mark Coltharp, executive vice president, Zyston. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Sumo Logic to more broadly, incorporate their Cloud SIEM technology into our Security Operations Center Threat Modeling Lab that allows customers to simulate threats and model SOC operational responses.”

Zyston joins a growing list of managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) as part of Sumo Logic’s partner ecosystem. As more organizations go through digital transformation they are increasingly turning to managed security providers to help them deal with many of its complexities. Since including MSPs and MSSPs into its program, Sumo Logic has brought onboard several new partners in this segment to provide their enterprise customers with a platform for comprehensive monitoring, security, and management to support their modern applications.


“Our partnership with Zyston further exemplifies our commitment to empowering resellers and solution providers with the knowledge and insights into how Sumo Logic can be implemented across the technology stack for full-spectrum visibility,” said Jabari Norton, VP of Global Partner Sales and Alliances for Sumo Logic. “We’re excited to partner with Zyston to help our joint customers leverage continuous intelligence and real-time security insights to reduce complexity, automate and speed threat detection and response, and filter the real threats from the noise.”
