The new funding has brought the total funding to date to $325 million. The investments will continue to fuel the business of Sumo Logic – spanning sales, global operations and engineering – with focus on developing the platform analytics capabilities of its service to further address the security, business and operational requirements of modern businesses as they rapidly adopt architecture, processes, tools, and new hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud infrastructure.
