The Type 2 SOC 2 report is an attestation report that opines on Sumo Logic's controls relevant to the security, availability and confidentiality of the information processed for its customers. Organizations with certification and compliance requirements such as HIPAA and PCI DSS may request and leverage Sumo Logic's Type 2 SOC 2 report as part of their compliance strategy.

  • Security - The machine data intelligence service is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
