“Security and risk management leaders (SIEM) are implementing and
expanding SIEM to improve early targeted attack detection and response.
Advanced users seek SIEM with advanced profiling, analytics and response
features,” wrote Gartner report authors Kelly M. Kavanagh, Principal
Research Analyst, and Toby Bussa, Research Director.

According to Gartner’s 2017 report, “The security information and event
management (SIEM) market is defined by the customer's need to analyze
event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and
data breaches, and to collect, store, analyze, investigate and report on
event data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.”
Splunk expanded its security portfolio offerings across machine
learning, advanced behavior analytics and incident response this year.

“Splunk’s vision of analytics-driven security forms the foundation of
our security solutions, including SIEM and UBA. This approach has become
widely adopted in the industry as the scope and impact of emerging
cyberthreats continue to rise,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice president
and general manager of Security Markets, Splunk. “Splunk is honored to
be recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Security
Information and Event Management for the fifth year in a row as we
strive to help our customers turn security data into insights and
actionable intelligence. We believe this recognition identifies our
success and we look forward to building on it as we bring innovative
solutions for advanced threat detection, investigation and incident
response to Splunk’s security portfolio.”

With the rise of cyberthreats and the shortage of industry skills to
combat such threats, Splunk’s security solutions are bridging the gap
with data science. Splunk’s security analytics platform and integrated
solutions are proving to add true value for organizations of all sizes:

  • Aflac
    is using Splunk ES
    at the center of its Threat Intelligence
    System, giving the insurance giant the ability to make sense of the
    data it receives from over 20 different threat intelligence platforms.
    Since implementing Splunk ES, Aflac reports that it has blocked over
    two million threats and automated threat hunting, giving the company
    valuable time back to focus on proactive security strategy.

  • Heartland
    Jiffy Lube is using Splunk ES and Splunk UBA
    to help identify
    security threats across the auto maintenance and servicing
    organization. The machine learning capabilities in Splunk solutions
    enabled Heartland Jiffy Lube security operations center (SOC) analysts
    to reduce threat response time from hours to realtime, with 25 percent
    less total cost of ownership.

  • TransAlta
    used Splunk Enterprise and Splunk ES
    to evolve its managed SOC,
    ingesting thousands of logs to better understand and enhance its
    security posture. Today, TransAlta can now detect and respond to
    modern threats, while achieving Level 5 SOC maturity with excellent
    endpoint visibility. This allows the Canada-based power generation
    company to accelerate its incident investigation process from days to

As the SIEM market continues to evolve, more Splunk customers are using Splunk’s
Adaptive Response
ecosystem, giving them the ability to detect and
respond to cyberattacks faster than ever within their security nerve
center. Splunk customers are also complementing Splunk ES and Splunk UBA
with Splunk
ES Content Update
and Splunk
Security Essentials for Fraud Detection
