Targeted, advanced attacks and insider threats can be detected and resolved using analytics of diverse data sets, but this data is challenging to bring into traditional SIEM deployments. Organizations use Splunk Enterprise and the Splunk App for Enterprise Security to create a security intelligence platform that leverages analytics to help find known and unknown, advanced threats. The Splunk App for Enterprise Security includes visualizations to identify anomalous behavior, a threat intelligence framework to organize and de-duplicate threat feed data and data models and a pivot interface to enable the fast creation of analytics. More than 175 security and compliance-specific apps are also available to help security teams quickly gain insights from industry-leading products from vendors including Cisco Systems, FireEye, Palo Alto Networks and more.Gartner defines the SIEM Leaders quadrant as being, “composed of vendors that provide products that are a good functional match to general market requirements, have been the most successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the SIEM market, and have a relatively high viability rating (due to SIEM revenue or SIEM revenue in combination with revenue from other sources). In addition to providing technology that is a good match to current customer requirements, Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements. They typically have relatively high market share and/or strong revenue growth, and have demonstrated positive customer feedback for effective SIEM capabilities and related service and support.” To view the report, go to: www.splunk.com/goto/SIEM_MQ_2014.
