Moving to Splunk Cloud Platform has a lot of benefits, including flexibility, agility, and scalability. However, we understand that migrating to cloud is not a trivial task and can also bring up security concerns especially when it comes to having your data traverse the internet.
By default, Splunk Cloud Platform addresses this concern by enabling encryption of data in flight using TLS 1.2+ for ingest and HTTPS for search data. While our industry-leading standards meet the security requirements of the majority of Splunk Cloud Platform customers, organizations in highly regulated environments require additional capabilities to help ensure their compliance and security needs are met. For a subset of customers in the financial, healthcare, and public sector — sending their mission-critical data over the public internet (or publicly accessible IPs) had been a soaring pain point, thwarting their transition to cloud.
We wanted to eliminate this barrier!
I am excited to announce support for private connectivity on the Splunk Cloud Platform through AWS PrivateLink. Private Connectivity enables our customers in regulated environments with an AWS presence to send data (Forwarder and HEC traffic) as well as access search tier of their Splunk Cloud stack over private endpoints, without ever exposing it over the public internet.
