Sumo Logic, the leading cloud-native, machine data analytics platform that delivers continuous intelligence, today announced a technology partnership with Mapbox, the leading location data platform for developers, that makes it easier for customers to gain business, security and operational insights to improve performance and overall experience for their end-users. Sumo Logic will be unveiling the integration on stage at Mapbox’s first-ever user conference, Locate, being held at Pier 27 in the Embarcadero during the Business Intelligence keynote at 11:55 a.m. PT on the main stage north.
“Improving the customer experience is at the core of all business and technology decisions today, and has become a major competitive advantage,” said Michael Marfise, senior director of product management, Sumo Logic. “At Sumo Logic, we’ve been focused on building out our platform with new and enhanced capabilities that are going to deliver on that need for our customers, and our partnership with Mapbox is yet another strategic step in that direction. With the ability to integrate Mapbox technology into the Sumo Logic platform, our users can easily visualize all of their data on interactive maps to identify anomalous behavior, solve problems faster and improve their overall business operations.”
The ability to view interactive map data within Sumo Logic is critical for quickly identifying security threats across a user’s organization and makes it easier than ever to display key threat intelligence and security geolocation data in real time. As a result, organizations won’t have to wait to investigate threats, and can immediately determine when and where there is a serious security threat penetrating their systems.
“We love working with Sumo Logic’s products at Mapbox, so a partnership was a natural fit,” said Ryan Baumann, sales engineer, Mapbox. “Our flexible location tools enabled Sumo Logic to build a new feature super fast. Now DevOps engineers can understand a new dimension about their application and security logs. And the best part about this is that engineers don’t have to export data to other platforms — they can view and analyze spatial trends directly within the Sumo Logic platform.”
Sumo Logic has also partnered with Neustar to deliver industry-leading IP geolocation data to customers and append log messages with latitude and longitude. With Neustar’s precision database, Sumo Logic users can take advantage of the proactive alerting and dashboarding capabilities to make sense of IP intelligence across their security and operational teams. This latest integration with Mapbox complements that capability to increase the value of the geolocation data for Sumo Logic customers by providing a more dynamic and accurate mapping facility for visualizing geolocated events.
Neustar features are currently available via the Sumo Logic platform now, and customers can start taking advantage of the Mapbox integration starting June 2018. The highly flexible Mapbox platform will also allow Sumo Logic to quickly add new, valuable capabilities for customers in the coming months, including heat maps, contextual information displays and improved log drilldowns.
