“Security and risk management leaders (SIEM) are implementing and
expanding SIEM to improve early targeted attack detection and response.
Advanced users seek SIEM with advanced profiling, analytics and response
features,” wrote Gartner report authors Kelly M. Kavanagh, Principal
Research Analyst, and Toby Bussa, Research Director.
According to Gartner’s 2017 report, “The security information and event
management (SIEM) market is defined by the customer's need to analyze
event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and
data breaches, and to collect, store, analyze, investigate and report on
event data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.”
Splunk expanded its security portfolio offerings across machine
learning, advanced behavior analytics and incident response this year.
“Splunk’s vision of analytics-driven security forms the foundation of
our security solutions, including SIEM and UBA. This approach has become
widely adopted in the industry as the scope and impact of emerging
cyberthreats continue to rise,” said Haiyan Song, senior vice president
and general manager of Security Markets, Splunk. “Splunk is honored to
be recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Security
Information and Event Management for the fifth year in a row as we
strive to help our customers turn security data into insights and
actionable intelligence. We believe this recognition identifies our
success and we look forward to building on it as we bring innovative
solutions for advanced threat detection, investigation and incident
response to Splunk’s security portfolio.”
