Vormetric Teams With Splunk To Deliver Security Intelligence On Access To Data

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vormetric, the leader in enterprise data security for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced that it is now a technology partner with Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence. In addition, Vormetric announced the general availability of Vormetric Data Security (VDS) for Splunk® Enterprise. VDS for Splunk provides customers with a high level of security intelligence for sensitive data using its Vormetric Data Firewall™ technology, enabling users to monitor applications and accounts that access data protected with encryption, control privileged user data access, and then monitor and alert based on access patterns.  This combination of Vormetric Data Firewall™ technology, Splunk Enterprise and VDS for Splunk Enterprise helps organizations to quickly and efficiently stop Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), malicious insiders or successful phishing attacks in their tracks.

"Vormetric's mission is to protect what matters – the data. By working together, Vormetric and Splunk deliver advanced security intelligence that spans the needs of any organization," said C.J. Radford, Vormetric VP of Cloud. "By combining Vormetric Data Security (VDS) and Splunk's advanced analysis and intelligence capabilities, organizations can now extend their data protection capabilities; better controlling privileged user access and preventing data breaches from occurring."

"We are pleased to add Vormetric to the growing ecosystem of Splunk partners all utilizing Splunk Enterprise as a big data security intelligence platform," said Bill Gaylord, Splunk SVP of Business Development. "Many organizations understand that data and system access is the first step to understanding and isolating potential data breaches due to malicious insiders or advanced threats. Splunk and Vormetric together can quickly and efficiently help businesses protect intellectual property and other data the business wishes to be kept private."

By combining Vormetric's detailed security intelligence information about access to sensitive data with Splunk's data analysis capabilities, organizations can recognize unusual patterns that may indicate a compromised account and, in so doing, deliver true data security. VDS for Splunk provides a number of security intelligence reports and enables search operations that can be used to extract information from the log streams produced by Vormetric encryption agents and the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM).

This solution also delivers the capability to "watch the watcher", detecting attacks against not only the data, but also against data security management infrastructure and accounts. Organizations can identify unusual and anomalous accesses patterns by security administrators that may indicate a malicious insider within the security organization, or a security administrative account that has been compromised.
