In this episode of the Mega Series, VMblog is joined by industry expert, Bruno Kurtic, the Founding Chief Strategy Officer at Sumo Logic.  Sumo Logic empowers the people who power modern, digital business. Through its SaaS analytics platform, Sumo Logic enables customers to deliver reliable and secure cloud-native applications. The Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform helps practitioners and developers ensure application reliability, secure and protect against modern security threats, and gain insights into their cloud infrastructures. They provide customers with powerful real-time analytics and insights across observability and security solutions for their cloud-native applications.

Watch and learn as Kurtic provides a quick overview on Sumo Logic and explores the company's journey over the last decade.  He also discusses the concept of reliability, and how it is reflected in the enterprise IT environment.

We also discuss how digital transformation and new cyberattacks are changing the way enterprises protect against threats, and, he explains the climate of continuous risk and what that means for security leaders.  We also talk about data privacy and data security, are they two separate missions with two separate objectives?  And how about COVID, how did it impact IT and security?

We also get into the idea behind cloud vs. on-premises.  Is on-prem still a reality?  Are things staying on the cloud?  Is it growing and expanding?  Or are things coming back locally?
