“Stringent data security and data integrity are fundamental design principles of Splunk Cloud,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager of cloud solutions, Splunk. “Achievement of ISO 27001 certification is a result of our focus on information security management, compliance with international standards and delivery of an easy-to-use cloud service that helps customers worldwide quickly gain value with full confidence.”
