Splunk Named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Security Information Event Management (SIEM)

Security teams have had it tough. They’ve been on the front lines, identifying, analyzing and mitigating incursions against their organization. Over the years, the barrage of cloud and on-premises vulnerabilities has proliferated, increasing the volume of alerts teams manage every single day, while the gap in the skills shortage has not improved.  Before, teams could only rely on legacy SIEM solutions. They experienced slow investigations, scalability issues and closed ecosystems. Making an already challenging job even more difficult. 

Splunk recognized the immense challenges that security teams faced and in response,  pioneered the modern, analytics-driven SIEM in the Cloud and on-premises. We have continuously focused on innovation, helping our customers modernize their security operations; empowering customers to turn data into detections, and insights into actions, across all security use cases, teams, and functions.

That’s why we’re honored that our customers chose us as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Information Event Management (SIEM). From the beginning our customers' needs have been at the core of what we do, their recognition is the basis for this award and that’s what makes it so meaningful. Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice in SIEM is a recognition of vendors chosen by verified end users, determined by the number of reviews and overall user ratings. Here are some statements our customers shared about us:
