Additionally, they launched a thorough investigation to understand the origin and scope of the incident, bolstering security measures to prevent future breaches through enhanced monitoring and vulnerability mitigation.
Furthermore, Sumo Logic has also advised its customers to take immediate action to enhance their security by rotating API access keys and resetting various credentials used for accessing Sumo Logic’s services. This includes Sumo Logic installed collector credentials, third-party credentials used for data collection, and user passwords for Sumo Logic accounts.
The company remains dedicated to ensuring a safe and secure digital experience for its customers and has promised to directly notify them if any evidence of malicious access to their accounts is discovered. Customers can access updates and information related to the incident at Sumo Logic’s Security Response Center.
