What wasn’t as surprising was government and military employees still using weak passwords on social media, Nachreiner said.

“Though one should expect those in government and military organizations to have higher operational security practices than the common civilian, we’ve become cynical over the years about the general password practices of just about anyone,” he said. “Despite many password leaks and breaches over the past decade, most people still seem to use still use weak passwords and don’t implement proven password security practices.

eSentire, Sumo Logic Launch Integrated MDR and SIEM Platform

eSentire and Sumo Logic have partnered to deliver an integrated managed detection and response (MDR) and security information and event management (SIEM) platform that protects organizations from current and future blind spots and evolving cyber threats across network, endpoint, cloud and mobile devices.

The integration of Sumo Logic’s cloud-native solution with eSentire’s pure-play MDR platform eliminates common blind spots exploited by adversaries. eSentire security analysts leverage Sumo Logic’s ability to bring together log and metric data from on-premises and cloud assets.

“It is highly important to us that our customers are never disadvantaged in any way when they buy from one of our partners,” he said. “This platform creates the same new opportunities that it creates for our sales team; an ability to further complement our MDR offerings with a managed SIEM solution and enhanced logging capability. Our partnership with Sumo Logic also extends our reach into cloud-based applications and environments, while providing a rich and robust user experience for reporting.”

Now was the right time for eSentire, a MDR company, to partner with a “leading SIEM technology provider to further enhance our platform with enriched logging capabilities,” Braden said.

“We needed a platform where we could make use of leading analytics and data strengths that complement ours, and we found Sumo Logic to be by far the most compelling offering,” he said. “Fundamental was their ease of deployment and integration into our MDR service via a rich set of APIs. We did an extensive evaluation of 10 separate technologies, and in the end, Sumo Logic was our clear choice technically and commercially for this strategic partnership.”
