Splunk Cloud Drives Security Monitoring and Threat Detection at Orrstown Bank
Community Bank Leader Uses Splunk Cloud to Help Secure Customer Data Across Hybrid Environment
SAN FRANCISCO – June 9, 2015 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that Orrstown Bank, an East Coast community bank with $1.2 billion in assets, is using Splunk® Cloud as its security intelligence platform to help detect threats and ensure regulatory compliance. In addition to helping Orrstown Bank secure its hybrid cloud and on-premises environment, Splunk Cloud enables the bank to continuously improve reliability and cut costs in IT operations. The bank’s Technology and Enterprise Risk Management organization will also use Splunk Cloud for an upcoming project involving the bank’s ATMs.
“The team here has decades of experience using technology in some of the world’s largest financial institutions, and we all knew that Splunk solutions would be traveling with us when we came to Orrstown Bank,” said Andrew Linn, chief information security officer, Orrstown Bank. “Splunk Cloud was deployed into production as our platform for security intelligence less than two weeks after starting a POC. Splunk helps us deliver an exceptional and secure financial services experience for our community banking customers.”
Splunk Cloud gives Orrstown Bank centralized visibility into machine data coming from more than 60 unique data sources across its entire hybrid IT environment that includes on-premises servers, Amazon Web Services servers and Microsoft Azure. With the ability to now analyze this hybrid data together in Splunk Cloud, Orrstown Bank has improved IT operations reliability and can quickly detect anomalous behavior across its performance, application and network data logs.
The bank also uses Splunk Cloud to conform with strict financial services compliance mandates and to answer even the most complex and unanticipated auditor questions. Orrstown Bank also plans to use Splunk Cloud for a critical new project as it deploys new ATMs. Splunk Cloud will collect metrics from the ATMs in real time to help diagnose issues and anticipate possible service outages before they impact customers.
“Enterprises across all industries, including financial services organizations like Orrstown Bank, trust Splunk Cloud to help secure and manage their IT environment and business,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager, cloud solutions, Splunk. “These organizations turn to Splunk Cloud, in part, because of our 100 percent Uptime SLA, SOC 2 Type 2 Attestation and support for hybrid deployments.”
