Splunk Mission Control Takes Off, Supercharging the Security Operations Center
New Splunk Security Solutions Help the SOC Turn Data into Business Outcomes
Security analysts around the world are under greater pressure than ever before to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on security threats with data. Splunk Mission Control is a new, cloud solution that connects Splunk SIEM (Splunk Enterprise Security), SOAR (Splunk Phantom) and UEBA (Splunk UBA) products into a single unified analyst experience. Combined, these powerful innovations form the Splunk Security Operations Suite, which allows customers to act on threats and other high-priority security issues through the entire event lifecycle.
With Splunk Mission Control, customers gain a new, unified SOC experience that supports investigation and search across multiple on-premises and cloud-based Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security instances, ChatOps collaboration, case management and automated response, all from a common work surface. This industry-first combination helps to boost productivity and increase efficiency, particularly for customers using hybrid on-premise and cloud-based infrastructures.
