DFLabs S.p.A. has been sold to Sumo Logic, Inc.

Headquartered in Milan, Italy, DFLabs is a leading provider of cybersecurity threat response automation and orchestration solutions via its advanced platform serving leading enterprises and managed security services providers. DFLabs enables customers to manage, measure and devise complex security operations tasks and incident response processes. This facilitates more effective threat hunting and investigation, threat containment and mitigation.

The acquisition of DFLabs, in which Evolution Equity is a minority investor, will extend Sumo Logic’s cloud-native security information and event management solution to help reduce or eliminate tedious and error-prone manual tasks and empower security operations center teams to accelerate threat detection, analysis, incident response and forensic investigations. The addition of DFLabs to the Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform™ will provide customers of varying sizes and maturities with comprehensive cloud-native security intelligence solutions built for today’s digital businesses that leverage modern applications, architectures and multi-cloud infrastructures.

Lincoln served as financial advisor to the company, working closely with management and investors to secure this positive outcome.
