Staying Agile for Continued Success
As part of the university sector, Flinders University has to juggle a lot of requirements, including a detailed privacy plan, insurance coverage, certain industry standards and external audits by state and commonwealth governments. But the institution also requires a flexible security architecture without imposing a one-size-fits-all approach. Along with keeping its staff and students secure after an unprecedented year, the university must be able to respond to security threats quickly and confidently.
“Safely monitoring what people are doing on systems and integrating that with identity access management is important,” says Valois. “Splunk is friendly for users of varying skill sets from across campus. Now we can determine what good security and monitoring looks like and implement it faster.”
Flinders University initially implemented Splunk to expand visibility and unify systems. But as the university’s technology decisions have evolved, the Splunk platform has met its changing needs, providing security monitoring, identity management, endpoint control and more. Moving forward, Flinders University plans to continue expanding use of the Splunk platform, making it available to more stakeholders and further cementing Splunk as a valuable member of this forward-thinking team.
