Automated endpoint security company SentinelOne has acquired Scalyr, a log management and data analytics platform, for $155 million in equity and cash.  

Scalyr, founded by former Google executives Steve Newman and Steven Czerwinski, offers a software-as-a-service solution that incorporates log aggregation, search and analysis, server metrics, dashboards and alerts and external monitoring. Its core event database feature, according to the company’s website, is designed to pull data from a wide variety of sources, including an agent installed directly onto customer servers to collect logs and server metrics, Scalyr’s own monitors that can probe servers or import Amazon cloud metrics and an SSL-based Application Programming Interface.

SentinelOne claims the technology will allow it to eliminate most data schema requirements and offer an XDR platform that can ingest logs and other unstructured data in real time from virtually any source or database, something the company is keen to incorporate into its extended detection and response platform.
