Identity management continues to drive digital transformation and innovation across industry verticals. At the forefront of these changes, Auth0 is observing a strong shift towards an integrated approach towards security, operations, and analytical insights. Modern enterprises are designing their systems to leverage data as a core value, and Auth0 makes this possible by providing scalable, resilient, and real-time access to our user's identity and security data. Customers can use their metrics tool of choice without any dependency on development teams.
This is enabled by Auth0's Log Streaming feature, and we are very excited to announce Sumo Logic as our latest strategic partnership geared toward helping customers realize their identity data strategy. Sumo Logic provides its users with log management, monitoring, and SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) tools. This native Auth0 integration alongside the Sumo Logic app allows our users to visualize key insights like logins, accounts creations, and security anomalies at the click of a button.
Auth0 is also a Sumo Logic technology partner and joins its Modern Enterprise Security Architecture (MESA) framework for serving Identity and Access needs to modern cloud enterprises. "There is a tremendous value from integrating identity analytics and security data in a closed-loop model to help better monitor SOC and SIEM production applications. We're excited to deliver that value to our joint customers to give them the continuous intelligence they need to strengthen DevSecOps and application security," said John Coyle, VP of Business Development at Sumo Logic.
Our Sumo Logic partnership allows for countless possibilities for our users to leverage the wide variety of Auth0 events and their contextual richness. Some key use cases here include:
Proactive insights into security threats Users can easily identify suspicious activity and act on it before it turns into a major incident. Auth0 makes it easy to detect anomalies like sudden spikes in login attempts or account activities by providing events for security incidents such as breached passwords or IP/account blocks enforced for attack protection. Paired with the powerful real-time visualization capabilities of Sumo Logic, security professionals can easily stay on top of threats.
Operational monitoring and troubleshooting Often the harder challenge for an operational team is separating the signal from the noise constantly demanding attention. Once they identify a suspicious pattern, there is usually a race to build correlations with disparate data sets to get to the root cause. Auth0's categorization of different types of events from signups, logins, MFAs, or recovery allows operational teams to design dashboards and set alerts in Sumo Logic. This, in turn, enables them to easily identify issues and investigate further as they see increases in failures of successful operations.
Leveraging data for better decision making Sumo Logic and Auth0 events pair seamlessly to help users understand the behavior patterns of their customers or to analyze adoption trends as they relate to markets or geographies. With Auth0's contextual depth, such as device details or location information, it has never been easier to analyze identity metrics and drive better business decisions such as focusing on segments or prioritizing features based on observed trends.
Log Streaming Enables This Integration
Auth0 Log Streaming provides scalable, resilient, and low latency access to Auth0 event logs covering a wide range of event types, including our own security-specific events. It enables our users to bring Auth0 data into their own security, operations, or analytics tool of choice. It also allows our users to use Auth0 as an extensibility or automation trigger, leveraging our event details to start workflows such as automated email campaigns or actions to security threats.
