Security Information and Event Management
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 6, 2018--
Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), delivering actions and outcomes from the world
of data, today announced it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018
Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management1
for the sixth straight year. Splunk was also positioned highest overall
on the ability to execute axis, which we feel is a testament to Splunk’s
position at the heart of the Security Operations Center (SOC). For the
report, Gartner evaluated Splunk’s security offerings, including Splunk®
Enterprise Security (ES), Splunk
User Behavior Analytics (UBA) and Splunk
Phantom®. For a complimentary copy of the Gartner 2018

According to Gartner’s 2018 report, the security information and event
management (SIEM) market is defined by the “customer’s need to analyze
event data in real time for early detection of targeted attacks and data
breaches, and to collect, store, investigate and report on log data for
incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.” Splunk
significantly expanded its security portfolio offerings this year,
adding machine learning capabilities and security automation,
orchestration and response (SOAR) technology via its acquisition of
“The effective use of threat intelligence, behavior profiling and
analytics can improve detection success. SIEM vendors continue to
increase their native support for behavior analysis capabilities as well
as integrations with third-party technologies, and Gartner customers are
increasingly expressing interest in developing use cases based on
behavior,” wrote Gartner report authors Kelly Kavanagh, Senior Principal
Analyst, Toby Bussa, VP Analyst and Gorka Sadowski, Senior Director
“Splunk introduced the concept of analytics-driven security to the
market, which has helped thousands of organizations get insights and
take action on their data. Today, customers around the world are using a
powerful combination of Splunk security solutions to help them detect,
investigate and act on security threats faster than ever before,” said
Haiyan Song, senior vice president and general manager, security
markets, Splunk. “We believe Gartner’s continued recognition
demonstrates Splunk’s vision of building a security nerve center that
empowers our customers to act on threats rapidly with data analytics,
and then remediate at machine speed while leveraging security
orchestration, automation and response.”
The security skills gap is growing - recent estimates2 state
that the industry will be short two million security professionals by
next year. With that, security teams are struggling to keep up with an
accelerated volume of threats and alerts that are constantly barraging
their networks. As more and more customers turn to Security Operations
as the center of gravity within the SOC, organizations are demanding
solutions that can leverage data to automate and orchestrate threat
response. Splunk unveiled its latest suite of security
solutions at .conf18, the annual Splunk users conference last month,
Enterprise Security 5.2, Splunk’s flagship security platform,
which acts as the ‘security nerve center’ within the SOC so customers
can use their data to continuously monitor, detect and respond to risk
User Behavior Analytics 4.2, powered by machine learning, which
helps customers detect anomalous behavior and known and unknown
threats from inside or outside of their networks
Phantom 4.1, the newest addition to Splunk’s security portfolio,
which allows customers to automate and orchestrate a response on their
security data to dramatically scale their security operations.
