(NASDAQ:SPLK), the leading provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), the global leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities, has selected Splunk for security monitoring and compliance efforts related to its online hosting business. Monster Worldwide chose Splunk software for its time to value and ability to deploy rapidly. This enables Monster to avoid building its own solution that could have taken months to implement.
“Successful companies today need to protect, track, and control access to sensitive information,” said Mark Conway, senior vice president and CIO, Monster Worldwide. “Splunk software helps ensure that Monster continues to provide top quality service to our customers. We selected Splunk because it applies across use cases – including security and compliance, applications, web analytics, operations, web intelligence and overall business insight. Splunk is the enterprise data platform that we will run our business on and is a critical component of our security and compliance and big data strategies.”
Government compliance mandates often have complicated, costly and time-consuming demands. Splunk helps solve many of these challenges in one place. Splunk indexes machine-generated big data in real-time, allowing organizations to search, alert and report on this data. Reports are generated quickly, while at the same time meeting requirements to collect and retain specific audit trails. In addition, Splunk software enables end-to-end situational security awareness, real-time monitoring of security incidents and attacks and gives customer new levels of visibility and intelligence in combating cyber threats.
“Splunk enables organizations to easily gain operational intelligence from their machine data,” said Steve Sommer, chief marketing officer, Splunk. “The more data we index, the more value we deliver. New customers like Monster Worldwide often purchase Splunk Enterprise to solve one use case, learn more about the value of their machine data, then expand to additional use cases over time. Our customers always amaze us with the innovative and groundbreaking ways they use Splunk software. We welcome Monster Worldwide as a new customer to Splunk and look forward to learning what they will do next.”
