Splunk Gets the Hat Trick!

In late 2022, the entire world was enthralled in the FIFA World Cup. Two of the biggest moments of the World Cup came when Kylian Mbappe of France and Gonçalo Ramos of Portugal scored hat tricks — three goals scored in a single game.

Splunk Security recently got a hat trick of its own. Splunk was named a Leader in SIEM and security analytics by three analyst firms — Forrester, IDC, and a third analyst firm. 

  • Forrester: The Forrester Wave™: Security Analytics Platforms, Q4 2022 report named Splunk Enterprise Security a “Leader” in  security analytics platforms based on a detailed evaluation of the top 14 providers
  • IDC: Splunk was named a Leader in the 2022 IDC MarketScape for SIEM report
  • A third independent analyst report

We believe these recognitions demonstrate Splunk’s commitment to delivering cutting edge security solutions to help customers stay ahead of emerging cyber threats. Here is a detailed look at each report’s findings.
