Defense and Intelligence Agencies
Supporting organizations and communities during times of uncertainty
Traditional perimeter-based defense approaches are ill-equipped to handle today's security threats from nation states, sophisticated cyber criminals and insiders. Siloed products and a skills and resource shortage are compounding the challenge. Agencies require Splunk's analytics-driven security approach to quickly determine malicious activity and enable fast incident response through an intuitive, integrated interface.
The need to detect insider threats has forced agencies to look for new ways to understand complex user behavior. Knowing the difference between willful acts and innocent mistakes requires understanding when user activity is abnormal in the broader context of employee behavior.
Identifying activities that are unauthorized or suspicious is done through the use of Splunk's statistical analysis commands on very large data volumes. Using statistical analysis, personal-activity comparative analysis, and user-activity context analysis, Splunk technology can correlate these key data types with user activities to provide a more complete story around suspected malicious behavior.
Internet of Things and the Data-Driven Battlefield
The Army has started testing TALOS (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) in the field for deployment in 2018. Sensor data from the suit can provide information on the operating status of suit hydraulics and batteries. Next steps often discussed include monitoring soldier vital signs and hydration. Learn how Splunk enables concepts such as smart soldiers and connected vehicles that can provide real-time situational awareness and accelerate mission operational efficiencies.
