New Integration Combines Power of ExtraHop Open Data Stream with Cloud-Native Sumo Logic Analytics Service to Equip Enterprise IT with Actionable Data

SEATTLE, WA – November 19, 2014ExtraHop®, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT intelligence and business operations, and Sumo Logic, the next generation machine data intelligence company, today announced a partnership that combines wire data from ExtraHop with Sumo Logic's scalable machine data analytics platform for powerful insights into enterprise IT infrastructure. The technology partnership leverages ExtraHop's Open Data Stream to provide a single, unified view of wire data and machine data within the Sumo Logic cloud analytics service, delivering deep, rich, correlated visibility across all tiers of IT infrastructure. Armed with contextual insights from multiple data sources, enterprise IT teams are empowered to address service issues and security threats more quickly and effectively.

The ExtraHop and Sumo Logic integration enables users to send precise, policy-driven events and metrics from the ExtraHop platform to the Sumo Logic platform in real-time via Open Data Stream for multidimensional analysis and correlation with other machine data sources. By coupling wire data from ExtraHop with Sumo Logic's insight into the IT infrastructure that underlies enterprise applications, IT teams have the visibility they need to investigate and remediate issues affecting performance, availability, and security across infrastructure. Purpose-built for web-scale enterprises, Sumo Logics's cloud-first platform ingests more than 14 trillion logs daily and dynamically scales as business needs evolve.

With ExtraHop and Sumo Logic, enterprise IT teams can achieve the following:

  • Easily determine the slowest stored procedures for applications
  • Identify misconfigured DNS servers that are returning errors
  • Surface potential security threats by cross-referencing wire data and enterprise application data
  • Pinpoint Citrix XenApp servers responsible for slow application launch times along with the users affected and the cause
  • Detect anomalies through Sumo Logic and then explore contextual communications in ExtraHop
  • Simplify IT operations across the board with best-in-class analytics solutions that are easy to deploy and maintain
"Adding ExtraHop data as a new source into the Sumo Logic service for proactive analysis against other feeds enables IT teams to gain deeper performance, security, and business insights from across IT infrastructure," said Mark Musselman, Vice President, Strategic Alliances at Sumo Logic. "Sumo Logic's cloud-native architecture means the service serves as an aggregation point for diverse data sources. The result is an IT team that acts on timely information from within their infrastructure—even information they did not know to ask for. A critical piece to the puzzle lies in Sumo Logic's Anomaly Detection, a proprietary capability that delivers insight from patterns in data and insights beyond what IT teams themselves know to query."

"As IT Operations Analytics emerges as an important framework for IT intelligence and business operations, the ability to integrate, analyze, correlate, and view different data sets, especially at scale, is becoming increasingly critical," said Erik Giesa, senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing and Business Development at ExtraHop. "The partnership between ExtraHop and Sumo Logic is an important example of the insight value, lower costs, and simplicity that can be derived from this type of integration. Analytics performed on both wire and machine data sources offers not only crucial insight into the performance, availability, and security of IT environments, but into important business performance metrics."
