SOC analysts are overwhelmed with alerts and manual repetitive tasks that negatively impact their ability to conduct and prioritize investigations of critical events. They don’t have the time, or bandwidth, to sift through data feeds or sources to identify and synthesize intelligence related to an incident. It’s critical that analysts have seamless access to associated intelligence in order to have an objective view into critical events, and a comprehensive understanding into the potential risk to the enterprise.
Today, we are excited to announce the release of Threat Intelligence Management!* As a feature of both Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) and Splunk Mission Control, Threat Intelligence Management enables analysts to fully investigate security events or suspicious activity by providing the relevant and normalized intelligence to better understand threat context and accelerate time to triage.
This feature supports the SOC by reducing the number of alerts to investigate by filtering out the intelligence that is not relevant to the organization, allowing you to monitor only for intelligence related to specific use cases. By synthesizing intelligence into a single, normalized view, we're making it even easier for analysts to understand threat context and take action.
Monitor Against Curated IOC Lists to Reduce Alert Volume and Detect Faster
Threat Intelligence Management enables analysts to create indicator of compromise (IOC) threat lists for Enterprise Security in order to receive relevant alerts that align to specific detection use cases. Analysts reduce alert-fatigue by detecting IOCs relevant to their environment and access pertinent intelligence.
Access Integrated Intelligence within Incidents to Reduce Time to Investigate
Threat Intelligence Management integrates directly with Splunk Mission Control’s incident framework which enables analysts to detect sophisticated threats and reduce alert fatigue. Having Threat Intelligence Management integrated into Mission Control incidents provides analysts with an integrated intelligence solution to support investigation of critical events.
