Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced the general
availability of version 3.1 of the Splunk® App for Enterprise Security.
Recently named a Leader
in the 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event
Management, Splunk introduces a new risk scoring framework in the
Splunk App for Enterprise Security to enable easier, faster threat
detection and containment by empowering users to assign risk scores to
any data. The app also includes new features to help users connect and
visualize data on the fly and introduces guided search to make security
analytics more accessible to a broad range of users without requiring
knowledge of programming languages or command syntax. Splunk customers
who have purchased the app can download
version 3.1 of the Splunk App for Enterprise Security on Splunk
Apps. New users are encouraged to contact Splunk sales.
Haiyan Song, vice president of security markets, Splunk, will highlight
the important role the Splunk App for Enterprise Security plays within
analytics-driven security teams in her keynote at RSA
Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2014. Song’s keynote, “The
Analytics-enabled Security Operations Center – Best Practices for
Improving Incident Response and Breach Investigation,” begins at 9:50
a.m. SGT, Wednesday, July 23 in the Grand Ballroom of the Marina Bay
Sands in Singapore. Splunk experts will also be at booth #P2 throughout
RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2014 with hands-on demonstrations of
the Splunk App for Enterprise Security, Splunk Enterprise and some of
the 150+ security-relevant apps available on Splunk
“Adapting quickly to new attack techniques is the key for modern
cybersecurity warriors, and the new version of the Splunk App for
Enterprise Security was built specifically to help organizations remain
agile in this dynamic landscape of zero-day and previously unknown
attacks,” said Song. “Risk scoring provides prioritization beyond just
event data to help security teams transform security analytics by
identifying the most critical threats from the massive streams of data
surrounding them. We believe the app will have a profound impact on the
threat detection capabilities of organizations around the world.”
“Splunk's Enterprise Security App Version 3.1 represents a great step
forward in providing security analytics to more roles across the
security team. The addition of risk-based analytics and more in-depth
threat intelligence, combined with the ability to connect and visualize
disparate data, are extremely valuable and well aligned with the
requirements we are hearing from end users,” said David Monahan,
security research director, Enterprise Management Associates. “The new
Guided UI allows any user to build sophisticated queries without
foreknowledge of the Splunk analytics language, advancing the
capabilities of every level of user, improving effectiveness and
accelerating the ROI gained from Splunk.”
New features in the Splunk App for Enterprise Security focus on
delivering risk-based analytics, connecting and visualizing disparate
data, and enriching security analysis with threat intelligence. Key
Risk-based Analytics: Enhance decision-making by applying a
risk score to any data through a new Risk Scoring Framework. Helps
security and IT teams prioritize, triage and be alerted to threats
based on risk score, while also exposing contributing factors of the
risk score to all relevant teams.
Visual Investigation: Gain faster, deeper insights across all
machine data by giving users the ability to visually discover
relationships by creating event swim lanes that organize and correlate
Guided Search Creation: Simplify complex correlation across
disparate data sources by building advanced searches in a guided user
interface with little or no knowledge of any programming language or
Domain Name-based Threat Intelligence: Adding onto the
integrated Threat Intelligence Framework, which deduplicates and
assigns weights to threat intelligence feeds, security teams can now
integrate high-fidelity and complex URLs and domain names.
