Sumo Logic: continuous digital ecommerce needs continuous intelligence

Self-styled ‘continuous intelligence’ company Sumo Logic has detailed news of digital omnichannel ecommerce’ agency Vaimo now has adopting its technology to provide security analytics for its services.  

Vaimo (rhymes with Flymo) is a provider of Magento and Adobe Commerce Cloud ecommerce services across operations in 15 countries — the company uses its own hybrid cloud and so oversees more than 1,000 servers distributed worldwide alongside an integration with content delivery network provider Cloudflare.

This type of IT stack and framework clearly needs security analytics to gather machine data and lock down channels that need to be firmed up — especially given the looming spectre that is the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the standards set out by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.

The company uses Sumo Logic to gather metrics and logs across its cloud operations, carry out analytics and detect potential attacks on its infrastructure.

“With Sumo Logic, we can automatically evaluate and track good customer behaviour on our clients’ websites for security – however this also means we can eliminate tools like CAPTCHAs that irritate or get in the way of human customers carrying out their shopping,” commented Wilko Nienhaus, chief technology officer at Vaimo.

For security, the Vaimo team uses Sumo Logic to automate its analytics processes to reduce the amount of work that was previously manual. It can apply machine learning-based pattern recognition, flag any deviations from normal activity for investigation and make it harder for bad actors to disrupt clients.

“Retailers are going through digital transformation projects and moving more of their businesses over to online channels to be competitive. This makes them able to serve their customers faster, but it opens them up to risk around security issues or vulnerabilities. Being able to see these issues developing ahead of any attack taking place is essential. Sumo Logic’s unified approach and cloud-native platform make it simpler for companies to automate processes around data collation, understanding and security, keeping businesses secure at scale. Companies need data and security to work hand in hand,” said James Campanini, general manager and vice president EMEA at Sumo Logic.

Sumo Logic works with Vaimo’s security operations teams at present, but the role for Sumo Logic is expanding within Vaimo over time as more teams see the potential around analytics for their use cases. 

NOTE: CWDN does not typically focus on customer case studies, but our team recently reported on Sumo Logic platform developments here and this story serves as some additional contextual follow up.

Do you use Windows devices to view DVDs or Blu-ray discs?

I use my home PC for all of my entertainment options. I do not have a TV.

There are time when my wife is using the TV and I want to watch a DVD. There are times when I need to watch a DVD quietly, which I can do on a computer with headphones. I find it very annoying that Microsoft has decided for me what I need and what I don't.

More control over a wide range of settings, and often for archive media no longer available from the original source - and I'm so glad I still have Win XP systems running, instead of the latest garbage to come out of Redmond.

All my DVDs and Blu-Rays are stored on Windows Home Server, this coupled with Win 7 Media Centre and My Movies, is awesome. Every visitor who has seen it has got me to setup the same for them, can't understand Microsoft dropping this. What other box can do this and also record all 4 HD channels at the same time?

When my wife is watching the TV and I don't like the programme I watch a DVD on my computer if I can that is. That's the reason for reading your article. Just got windows 8.1 and cyberlink stuff has expired now they want a shed load of money to get me back.

I have videos, etc. on DVD that are not available on-line. Family videos, etc.
Cancel
got to have blu -ray cause sometimes red box wont have the regular dvd version of a new movie, only blu ray. Like the new lego movie my kids want to see right now only available in blu ray
Cancel
I play Blu-Ray dvd on my laptop all the time...
I always take a few discs when I'm away from home.
Cancel
My laptop is pretty much the only place I watch DVDs anymore...and that'll probably change with my next laptop which likely won't have an optical drive. No Blu-Ray support, but that doesn't bother me at all. 
Cancel
I can't believe I paid extra to have DVD/CD players in both of my computers (laptop and desktop Windows 8.1 & desktop updated to Windows 10) only to have someone decide I didn't need it. I use the DVD players to play DVD's for work and studies. I have tried downloading free sites but they don't work either. I had working DVD's and now they have been eliminated. Not happy with whoever decided we don't need it or now need to pay a lot extra to have it reinstalled. Really??  Why bother with these upgrades if important capabilities are taken out of our computers?
Cancel
I used to watch a lot but the Blu-ray player software expired and I cannot justify the cost to renew it. Now I use another player but the features are a lot more limited.
Cancel
I love Windows8
Cancel
I bought a system with a blu-ray player so I could see movies on a larger screen while RV traveling on vacation.
Cancel
Why would I watch Blu-ray on a small computer screen when I have a large TV screen. I want to get away from computers at the end of work.
Cancel
well, gee, why do you want to know that Microsoft will generally find a way to put the customer last? Or a way to annoy as many people as possible? How is that news after 13 years of Ballmerism?
Cancel
I am so ready to dump Windows and attempt to stick with Linux for my main computer as well as my htpc
Cancel
so much for full backwards compatability. In Win7 I get DVD playback, but not in win8, just another reason to avoid win8, I prefer not to be told how to consume my entertainment, sure I use and love Netflix, but I'm not always online, and I don't want to be told "I have" to use such services for something I have been doing for year son a laptop
Cancel
One more reason to start dating some other platform. Oh well, it's been a pretty good 30 years. Now, where'd I put my iPad?
Cancel
Poor choice on MS part to not include a player.
Cancel
Another Windows 8 failure where they have a lousy survey making their decisions. Just because I watch 1000 YouTube videos does not mean I don't want to play all the DVDs I own.
Cancel
I have stand-alone DVD players, but all Blu-rays get played on PCs that have Blu-ray drives. More importantly, all my TV viewing and recording is done across my network with Windows 7 Media Center, supported by a pair of Silicon Dust network tuners that provide 4 independent OTA channels. Media Center is an entirely satisfactory DVR for me. I started with Windows XP Media Center Edition which was barely functional, but Media Center was just fine in Vista and improved in Win 7. I have installed Windows 8 with the Media Center option on one box, but that system is so irritating I can't advise on its MC functionality.

Where do they get their data from? Obviously their market research is producing the wrong results.
Cancel
I am using also the Start button, but MS will never ask those like myself if we are using it.
Cancel
It's convenient and my PC is on most of the time
Cancel
Even though I use Windows Media player occasionally for DVDs, I do get some level of satisfaction with my Windows 7 Professional OS.
Cancel
Well I do not know what telemetry was used as we are at 81%
Cancel
Never use Windows Media player ... always use VLC and it works perfectly! -- Jean.
Cancel
What a scam! If they had offered WMC as a freebie? I'd have bought it, charging to have what once was free? Scam. And we saw how good their "research" is when it came to the start button, didn't we?
Cancel
I think the DVD producers should start including a PC playback program with the disc, and let them pay the "small" codec charge. They are already including digital copies and adding all those additional features that want to autorun when I insert the disc.
Cancel
Ability to play CD, MP3, DVD and Blu Ray should all be built in.

I think the EU also have a lot to answer for the unbundling of core useful features.
Cancel
Very frustrating to be missing this simple feature, even if only rarely used. Particularly because it is relatively rare, spending another $100 on Media Center seems excessive. Question: does the Media Center-add on apply with standard Windows 8?
Cancel
It should be there.
Cancel
I use PowerDVD 13
Cancel
I infrequently use Windows to view DVDs, but Windows 8/8.1 cannot play back the .mpg files that my Sony video camera creates. I have downloaded various free applications to convert them to .avi, .mov, and .wmv, but it's inconvenient and uses up precious hard disk space.
Cancel
Microsoft seems to be trying real hard to drive everybody to switch to a MAC????
Cancel
I use VLC
Cancel
I connect my laptop to a mini-projector from Brookstone & project onto a large screen in the backyard.
Cancel
Not very often but I will miss the feature.
Cancel
I used this and now use VLC.
Cancel
I still think this is an essential function I cant stream on a Plane.
Cancel
