Automotive Group Aims to Cut Security Response Times From Hours to
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 16, 2018--
Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), first in delivering “aha” moments from machine
data, announced that Daimler, the German automotive group, will replace
its legacy SIEM with Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security
(ES). The group will use Splunk ES as its nerve center for security
analytics to gain security insights across the entire organization,
including business critical environments such as vehicle systems and
manufacturing lines. The company chose Splunk over open source

committing to a Splunk Enterprise Adoption Agreement (EAA), the company
is able to plan security for the future while benefiting from Splunk’s
predictable pricing. The flexibility of the Splunk platform was also
important; the group expects to realize future value from traditional IT
use cases as well as in newly developed digital applications and
services, like gaining insights into its connected car fleet or in
Industry 4.0 projects.

analytics to ensure they are helping to combat the sophisticated wave of
threats we are currently seeing,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice
president of Security Markets, Splunk. “This is a great example of an
