Evolven monitors and gathers configuration and change information using agent-based technology. ExtraHop provides real-time wire data analytics for monitoring and operations analytics. Sumo Logic offers a cloud-native log management and analytics platform with machine learning capabilities that can index and analyze data from a wide variety of sources.
