Splunk was founded in 2003 to solve problems in complex digital infrastructures. From the beginning, we’ve helped organizations explore the vast depths of their data like spelunkers in a cave (hence, “Splunk"). In 2024, Splunk was acquired by Cisco to help customers continue to build resilience across their entire digital footprint.

Splunk has evolved a lot in the last 20 years as digital has taken center stage and the types and number of disruptions have simultaneously escalated. With over 1,100 patents and a culture of innovation, we’ve stayed one step ahead of our customers’ needs. Today, many of the world’s largest and most complex organizations rely on Splunk to keep their mission-critical systems secure and reliable.

Our purpose is to build a safer and more resilient digital world. Every day, we live this purpose by helping security, IT and DevOps teams keep their organizations securely up and running. When organizations have resilient digital systems, they can adapt, innovate and deliver for their customers.

Resilience is a team effort. Let’s build it together.
