Splunk Expands Adaptive Response Initiative to Strengthen Enterprise Security
Organizations to Demonstrate New Capabilities at .conf2016
SAN FRANCISCO & ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
.conf2016 - Splunk
Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced the expansion of the Adaptive
Response Initiative. The initiative, announced
earlier this year, brings together leading vendors, leveraging
end-to-end context and automated response to help organizations better
combat advanced attacks through a unified defense. Acalvio, Anomali,
Cisco, CrowdStrike, DomainTools, ForeScout, Okta, Proofpoint, Qualys,
Recorded Future and Symantec have now joined the Splunk initiative,
bringing together many new capabilities to enterprise security.
"More and more organizations are embracing Splunk® Enterprise Security
(ES) as the nerve center of their Security Operations Center (SOC). It
is important that we enable collaborative architectures so our customers
can extend analytics-driven decisions across a multi-vendor security
technology stack," said Haiyan Song, senior vice president of security
markets, Splunk. "Splunk welcomes the new participants of the Adaptive
Response Initiative and is excited to deliver the new framework in
Splunk ES. This helps the security industry to work closer together
while helping organizations to leverage intelligence and automation to
better defend against attacks."
Advanced cyber adversaries are continuously leveraging new attack
methods that span multiple domains, launching devastating attacks that
often leave enterprises vulnerable. Despite advancements in security
technologies, most solutions are not designed to work together
out-of-the-box, making it challenging to coordinate a response. By
leveraging adaptive security architecture, the Adaptive Response
framework in Splunk ES provides end-to-end context and automated
response across twenty of the world's leading security technologies -
enabling customers to quickly detect threats and execute response.
"The pace and variety of today's cyberattacks combined with a wide range
of security tools in the typical enterprise make for a daunting
challenge for security professionals. For real visibility and a truly
actionable approach, enterprises demand a level of multi-vendor
integration across silos and tools that goes beyond the efforts of the
past," said Scott Crawford, research director of Information Security,
451 Research. "The Adaptive Response capabilities in Splunk Enterprise
Security provide the centerpiece of a flexible, ecosystem-driven
approach to combat advanced attacks through a more coordinated,
