SAN FRANCISCO and LAS VEGAS – July 17, 2023 – Splunk Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are partnering to build Splunk’s enterprise security and observability offerings on Microsoft Azure. Additionally, for the first time, Splunk solutions will be available for purchase on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
“Splunk and Microsoft’s strategic partnership will provide our joint customers and partners with advanced digital resilience to help them remain secure and up and running at every step of their cloud journey,” said Gary Steele, President and CEO of Splunk. “Splunk delivers mission-critical solutions to meet customers where they are, and we are dedicated to bringing together the best-in-class security, observability and platform solutions, all powered by Splunk AI. We are pleased to offer organizations flexible deployment options as part of our truly hybrid approach.”
Within this agreement, Microsoft will collaborate with Splunk to develop a differentiated product offering by leveraging Microsoft Azure for Splunk’s cloud products.
