Splunk and FINRA to Present How Organizations Gain End-to-End Visibility in Large-Scale AWS Environments

AWS re:Invent 2015 and SAN FRANCISCO – October 6, 2015 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced the new release of the Splunk App for AWS at AWS re:Invent 2015. The new version of the app transforms AWS CloudTrail, AWS Config, Amazon CloudWatch, and now Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Flow Logs into easy-to-use dashboards that provide comprehensive security, compliance and operational insights into Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments.

“The new Splunk® App for AWS provides leading enterprises with additional visibility and security as they move mission critical workloads to the cloud with confidence,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president of cloud solutions, Splunk. “As they efficiently and productively deploy and manage AWS environments, enterprises benefit from end-to-end visibility and the ability to monitor user activity, resource changes, topology and network traffic flows. We are excited to show organizations how this can be done with Splunk cloud solutions at AWS re:Invent 2015.”

“Splunk is an excellent example of a company that leverages rapid, continuous innovation to the benefit of AWS customers,” said Terry Wise, vice president of channels and alliances, Amazon Web Services. “With the Splunk App for AWS, customers can further simplify their operational and security intelligence by centralizing their machine data into easy-to-use dashboards.”

“The Splunk App for AWS succeeded in providing us an effortless click through experience in configuring and monitoring all our AWS logs. Using the Splunk App for AWS we are able to visualize and represent our data in a way that makes sense to developers, system administrators and security professionals in one easy to manage interface. The new VPC Flow logging is an exciting and new added bonus that finally gives us insight into intra-VPC and inter-VPC traffic patterns,” said Nathan J Gibson, product privacy and security lead, ADT.

Gary Mikula, senior director of information security engineering, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Praveen Rangnath, senior director of product marketing, Splunk, will present at AWS re:Invent 2015 about how FINRA uses the Splunk App for AWS to gain additional visibility across its cloud data and infrastructure.
