(NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the Data-to-Everything Platform, today announced it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management* for the seventh time in a row.

According to Gartner’s 2020 report, “The security information and event management (SIEM) market is defined by customers’ need to analyze security event data in real time, which supports the early detection of attacks and breaches. SIEM systems collect, store, investigate, support mitigation and report on security data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.” Splunk continued to build on its security offerings this year, introducing enhanced, real-time monitoring via ES Event Sequencing and the ability to implement security automation with threat intelligence.
“A perfect storm of challenges including never-ending alerts, a security skills shortage, and a barrage of on-premise and cloud vulnerabilities are forcing the Security Operations Center to evolve quicker than ever before. While security analysts continue to look for ways to modernize the SOC, many are embracing Splunk to help them manage security across the entire threat lifecycle,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice president and general manager, security markets, Splunk. “We are honored by Gartner’s continued recognition of Splunk’s ability to lead and execute, which we believe is a testament to our relentless focus on helping 18,500+ customers solve their toughest cyber challenges and modernize security operations with data.”
Organizations around the world are going through a time of unprecedented change, driven by an explosion of new technologies and innovations. This change creates more data than ever imagined, which in turn creates wider attack surfaces and increasing security risk for organizations of all sizes.
