Sumo Logic has agreed to the acquisition of Security Orchestration, Automation and Response provider DFLabs, based in Milan, Italy, under undisclosed terms, according to CRN. The deal, which is expected to close in the fiscal quarter ending July 31, would give Sumo Logic enhanced capabilities in incident response, threat detection and analysis and forensic investigations. Sumo Logic expects to provide up to 10 times better security operations productivity after implementation of the DFLabs SOAR offering, including accelerated visibility and automatically created insights, which would ease manual triage efforts and automatically begin investigation and resolution workflow through triggered playbooks. DFLabs, which had previously raised $9 million in two funding rounds, will have its entire team of 55 employees join Sumo Logic under its security business unit, according to CEO Dario Forte. Sumo Logic said its own SOAR tool is scheduled to launch some time after the company closes the DFLabs acquisition and would connect upstream emerging DevSecOps models with downstream SOC workflows.
