Cloud-based data observability just got easier with Cribl

That Transform Technology Summits launch on October 13 with Low-Code / No Code: Enabling Enterprise Agility. Register now!

For business tech makers, the cloud often poses a problem: How do you balance convenience with security? This tension exists across a range of IT and engineering disciplines, and data observability is no exception. How do you use a cloud-based tool to monitor the health of an organization’s data — a massive flock that inevitably contains sensitive business data — without risking that data?

Cribl has a new answer to this riddle. Today, data analytics pipeline provider LogStream Cloud unveils, bringing the observable edge architecture that has long been available to its local customers to its cloud-based offering. The new feature enables users of Cribl’s cloud-based data observability services to process, secure and manage an almost unlimited amount of event data in real time without compromising on this data.

“Historically, a lot of this data is very sensitive,” said Clint Sharp, co-founder and CEO of Cribl. “Organizations want to be able to process this data very close to where it was originally broadcast.”

LogStream Cloud, which will be available on October 18, effectively moves data processing to the cloud, but does so in a way that protects the security of more sensitive local data using cryptographically secured, zero-confidence tunnels. In doing so, Sharp hopes, Cribl will make the cloud more friendly to the fast-growing and mission-critical area of ​​enterprise data observability.

As trends such as the growth of remote work and the frequency and complexity of security threats unfold, data observability only becomes more vital for companies. As space warms, Cribl literally places itself at the center of data observability and offers a centralized observability infrastructure that can be connected to a wide range of data sources and observation tools.
