Splunk Deepens Security Leadership With Appointment Of Haiyan Song As Vice President Of Security Markets

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced the appointment of Haiyan Song as vice president of security markets. With more than 20 years of experience, Song will serve as the leader of a cross-functional security team that includes security experts in product development, product management, marketing, business development, sales and field technical services. Song will be responsible for driving Splunk’s strategy and execution in the fast-growing security market. Song will report to Steve Sommer, chief marketing officer, Splunk.

“Haiyan’s deep expertise in developing enterprise security products will further enable Splunk to develop and bring to market innovative security intelligence solutions,” said Sommer. “Organizations are now transitioning away from traditional, legacy systems that are often challenged to handle the scale and analytics required for effective security. Our ability to attract a security executive of Haiyan’s stature is a tribute to our customer success and the potential of our big data security intelligence platform.”

“I am excited to join a company known for its innovation and disruption of the security market,” said Song. “Splunk is uniquely positioned to provide a big data security intelligence platform to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the security market. Splunk’s solutions are excellent at detecting both known and unknown threats with a powerful data platform and advanced analytics. Together with a very innovative customer base, Splunk has demonstrated the power and extensibility of the big data platform to address other high-value use cases such as fraud and insider threat monitoring. I look forward to helping our customers manage the rapidly evolving cyberthreat landscape.”

Previously, Song spent nine years at ArcSight-HP Enterprise Security Products as vice president and general manager, where she was responsible for driving product strategies and business execution. During her time at ArcSight, she led and grew the product team through the company’s IPO and subsequent acquisition by HP. Before joining ArcSight, Song was the vice president of engineering at SenSage, a leading data warehouse software provider. In addition, Song has held previous leadership positions at enterprise software companies and service providers including Escalate, Ketera Technology and Omniva Policy Systems. She started her career at IBM Informix, where she led the development of Informix-Online/Secure, its trusted relational database management system product.
