Sumo Logic has entered into an agreement to acquire DFLabs, a provider of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) software. The acquisition will extend Sumo Logic’s cloud-native SIEM solution to help reduce or eliminate tedious and error-prone manual tasks and empower SOC teams to accelerate threat detection, analysis, incident response and forensic investigations.
Dario Forte and the entire DFLabs team will join Sumo Logic’s Security Business Unit. The addition of DFLabs employees will bolster Sumo Logic’s global engineering and cyber security domain expertise, as well as adding Milan, Italy, to the growing roster of offices around the world.
As part of Sumo Logic’s Continuous Intelligence Platform, the company will expand its security intelligence portfolio with the launch of the Sumo Logic SOAR solution, which is expected to be available shortly after the closing of the transaction.
Delivered as a service, at cloud-scale, these solutions will enable the linkage of upstream emerging DevSecOps models with the downstream SOC workflows, closing the loop for adaptive cloud scale defense.
Sumo Logic SOAR will join the company’s Cloud SIEM offering as part of the Sumo Logic security intelligence suite of offerings including security analytics and security compliance.
The acquisition will broaden Sumo Logic’s portfolio as well as a rich joint ecosystem of customers and partners including MSPs, MDRs and VARs, while accelerating the companies’ mutual strategy to deliver the automation needed to modernize the SOC.
The acquisition is likely to close in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.
