Government defense and intelligence agencies are tasked with collecting, analyzing and storing massive amounts of data to detect and correlate patterns of activity related to security threats. They also need systems that can handle extremely granular role-based access controls (RBAC) so that only those that ‘need-to-know’ have access to the right data at the right time.Splunk® Enterprise, the industry standard product for big data analysis is widely deployed across hundreds of government agencies to help pass their FISMA assessments and:
- Detect patterns and anomalies across terabytes of raw data in real time without specialized skills, up front data normalizations or fixed schemas
- Can use Hunk®: Splunk Analytics for Hadoop and NoSQL data stores to provide a unified view or your data
- Automatically monitor for NIST 800-53 controls supporting the 800-37 risk management framework
- Support continuous monitoring and the acquisition of context data from any event from any layer of the IT structure
"Almost every agency faces a cybersecurity challenge. Some are farther along than others in driving awareness of it. It often depends on whether they’ve been in the crosshairs of a major cyber incident."
-Michael Daniel, U.S. Cybersecurity Coordinator
"The likelihood of a destructive attack that deletes information or renders systems inoperable will increase as attack tradecraft proliferate."
-James Clapper, U.S. Director of National Intelligence
"I've grown to fear a nation state that would never go toe-to-toe with us in conventional combat that now suddenly finds they can arrest our attention with cyber attacks."
-Michael Hayden, former CIA Director
