SAN FRANCISCO and .conf19, LAS VEGAS – October 22, 2019 – Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the Data-to-Everything Platform, today announced new innovations across its Security Operations Suite to modernize and unify the Security Operations Center (SOC). Anchored by the newly launched Splunk® Mission Control, the Splunk Security Operations Suite makes it easier than ever for security analysts to turn data into doing by managing security across the entire threat lifecycle.
Security analysts around the world are under greater pressure than ever before to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on security threats with data. Splunk Mission Control is a new, cloud solution that connects Splunk SIEM (Splunk Enterprise Security), SOAR (Splunk Phantom) and UEBA (Splunk UBA) products into a single unified analyst experience. Combined, these powerful innovations form the Splunk Security Operations Suite, which allows customers to act on threats and other high-priority security issues through the entire event lifecycle.
With Splunk Mission Control, customers gain a new, unified SOC experience that supports investigation and search across multiple on-premises and cloud-based Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security instances, ChatOps collaboration, case management and automated response, all from a common work surface. This industry-first combination helps to boost productivity and increase efficiency, particularly for customers using hybrid on-premise and cloud-based infrastructures.
“For decades, security analysts have been struggling to keep up with the rising volume of data to help them fight back against emerging cyber threats that can cripple businesses, disrupt governments and impact customer privacy. Today, the industry has grown to recognize that the answers are often sitting right in front of them, within their data,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice president and general manager of security markets, Splunk. “Splunk is proud to launch Mission Control to help our customers bring data to every question, decision and action within the SOC, allowing them to dramatically improve the analyst experience and modernize security operations.”
“Starbucks’ security operations team is responsible to defend its customers, partners and the Starbucks brand. Our success is directly dependent on the ability for our team to respond and remediate threats at machine speed,” said Atom Coffman, manager of cyber security operations, Starbucks. “Leveraging Splunk as a part of Starbucks’ SOC, we are able to automate action and pre-built orchestration workflows, all from one central platform.”
Splunk’s Security Operations Suite Redefines The Analyst Experience
As the volume of security-relevant data continues to grow, so will the importance of technologies that can automate and respond to that data in real-time. In front of a capacity crowd of 11,000 customers and partners at its annual user conference, Splunk also introduced several significant updates across its security portfolio, designed to create the strongest analyst experience and enable detection, defense and action on threats at machine speed:
“Deploying and scaling a cyber analytics platform is a journey,” said Brent Conran, Chief Information Security Officer, Intel. “We built a new platform based on Splunk and Kafka, and modernized our tools. With the data in the right place and reskilling of our people, we reduced our technical debt and created a force multiplier. Now, we are using machine learning to significantly increase the depth and speed of our cyber intelligence.”
Splunk Mission Control is in beta for early access customers, with general availability coming in the near future. New versions of Splunk ES, Splunk UBA and Splunk Phantom are available today.
