Security incidents occur without warning and can go undetected long enough to pose a serious threat to your business. Investigations can prove challenging and time consuming—by the time your security team is aware of an issue, there is a good chance that your organization has already been negatively impacted.
By providing analytics-driven insights from any machine data, regardless of source or format, Splunk enables security analysts to quickly identify root cause and make informed decisions on how to remediate an issue.
- Monitor, detect, analyze, and confirm higher-priority threats
- Shorten investigation cycles with visual analysis, graphical representation of thresholds, alarms, indicators and trends
- Respond quickly and appropriately in the event of a security breach
- Share critical security intelligence across teams from a single platform
- Be proactive in dealing with threats and maintaining security posture
An Investigation Workflow that Follows How You Think
Splunk enables security analysts to take a proactive stance to investigation and response – from monitoring and triage, verifying and escalating, to responding to a breach or infection. See how the Splunk Platform can help you address your specific security challenges.
Easily Change Search CriteriaAdjust your search without having to backtrack, quickly adding or removing criteria to “connect the dots” or pinpoint root cause.
Find Meaningful InformationFocus on relevant fields and tasks by adding or removing fields from an investigation, or enriching with other data sources to find meaningful patterns.
Understand Cause and EffectMap out the sequence of activities and events, and identify potential relationships; confirm cause and effect; customize timeline parameters.
Find and Share Trends and PatternsObserve and cross-reference against historical data with alerts and monitoring. Apply different visualization techniques to the search results.
Determine AnomaliesLocate and analyze anomalies using correlation and the application of statistical operations on search results to aggregate, count and order the results.
Why Splunk for Security Investigation?
Establish baselines and profile trends and behaviors to better target anomalies. Splunk Enterprise helps you address your immediate security needs and grows with your team as new security issues arise over time.
Analytics-Driven SecurityThe Splunk Platform streamlines the security analytics cycle and provides a range of analytical capabilities to deliver the right information at the right time to the right teams with the context they need to detect and respond to an incident quickly.
Security Analytics CycleThe security analytics cycle is the continual process of planning, implementing, managing, testing and reporting. Analysts work from a common data set and platform to share investigation notes, IOCs and automate where possible.
Data ExplorationSplunk enables you to capture, index and navigate any machine data without prior knowledge of the data or incident. This improves human insights and speeds up data exploration by keeping track of searches and actions without the need to open multiple tabs or track in separate tools.
Real-Time CorrelationsReal-time correlations and analytics help determine if multiple events are related to the same incident. Looking at all the data and performing analytics allows security teams to get a better view of their entire infrastructure and take steps to reduce risk.
Alerts and ReportsAlerts and reports of an incident can ensure full visibility and knowledge transfer to different teams throughout an organization to make more informed decisions, giving your security team a better chance to stop an attack and mitigate risk.
Information SharingInformation sharing builds end-to-end visibility across infrastructures and teams and enables better decision making based on real-time knowledge about what is happening in your environment. Once a foundation is set, it is easier to focus on performance, scale and management.
