Gartner recently published two new reports--the 2016 Magic Quadrant (MQ) and the 2016 Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). In both reports, Gartner evaluated Splunk Enterprise and the Splunk Enterprise Security solution, which are used by organizations around the world.


Splunk Enterprise Security meets the Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to improve the detection and response to advanced threats by providing broad security intelligence.


The advanced security analytics capabilities of Splunk are available from both native machine learning functionality of Enterprise Security and via integration with Splunk User Behavior Analytics (UBA) for more advanced methods, providing customers with the necessary features to implement advanced threat detection monitoring and insider threat use cases.


Based on the need to protect against advanced threats, we have seen a growing number of organizations are using Splunk to augment or replace their existing SIEM deployment.


We believe this industry-leading position is a reflection of the market fully embracing an analytics-driven approach to security and a testament to the strength of our security platform and the success our customers have achieved. As we continue to introduce new capabilities such as Adaptive Response, we will further strengthen the security posture of Splunk ES as the nerve center for security operations.
