Splunk Inc. is an American technology company based in San Francisco, California, that produces software for searching, monitoring, and analyzing machine-generated data via a Web-style interface. The company makes machine data accessible across an organization by identifying data patterns, providing metrics, diagnosing problems and providing intelligence for business operations. Splunk is a horizontal technology used for application management, security and compliance, as well as business and web analytics.
SecOps, formed from a combination of security and IT operations staff, is a highly skilled team focused on monitoring and assessing risk and protecting corporate assets, often operating from a security operations center, or SOC. Security and IT operations teams often work apart from one another, making the task of identifying cybersecurity threats and defending against them -or, if they turn into attacks, mitigating them — incredibly difficult. Combining security and IT operations into a dedicated SecOps team enables organizations to rapidly and intelligently predict and address security concerns.
On June 22, 2021, Splunk announced the Splunk Security Cloud, the only data-centric modern security operations platform that delivers enterprise-grade advanced security analytics, automated security operations, and threat intelligence with an open, unparalleled ecosystem.
Splunk Security Cloud was designed with a data-centric approach to security in mind — helping teams drive better decisions. This first-of-its-kind, modern, robust security operations platform includes the following capabilities:
- Advanced Security Analytics includes machine learning-powered analytics to detect and deliver key insights into multi-cloud environments.
- Automated Security Operations drives faster time to detection, investigation and response; alerts that used to take 30 minutes, now can take as little as 30 seconds.
- Threat Intelligence that automatically collects, prioritizes and integrates all sources of intelligence driving faster detections.
- Open Ecosystem helps correlate data across all security tools, regardless of the vendor, for increased visibility and apply prescriptive detections and guidance to detect threats faster.
