Splunk Named a Leader in Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for SIEM

Splunk Security Intelligence Platform Powers the Analytics-enabled Security Operations Center

Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that it has been named a leader in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant* for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Gartner evaluated Splunk® Enterprise and the Splunk App for Enterprise Security, award-winning products used for security by thousands of organizations around the world.

As the report outlines, “We continue to see large companies that are re-evaluating SIEM vendors to replace SIEM technology associated with partial, marginal or failed deployments,” according to Gartner report authors Kelly Kavanagh, principal research analyst, Mark Nicolett, managing vice president, and Oliver Rochford, research director. “The greatest area of unmet need is effective targeted attack and breach detection. Organizations are failing at early breach detection, with more than 92% of breaches undetected by the breached organization. The situation can be improved with stronger threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics. Most companies expand their initial SIEM deployments over a three-year period to include more event sources and greater use of real-time monitoring.”

“We believe Splunk’s position as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM reinforces the trend we are seeing that an analytics-enabled Security Operations Center (SOC) is essential and more effective at detecting and responding to today’s cyberthreats. Analytics provide the SOC and security team a holistic view by collecting, monitoring and analyzing all the data in an organization with rich enterprise and global threat context,” said Haiyan Song, vice president of security markets, Splunk. “Splunk customers are continuously transforming their operations by giving their SOC and security teams situational awareness and, more importantly, the ability to investigate and make determinations fast, which means more decisive and timely actions against attacks, advanced persistent threats, insider threats and other operational issues.”

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.”

New Report Identifies Untapped Opportunity in Operational Intelligence for 4 in 5 Businesses

Quocirca Outlines Potential of Machine Data; Launches First Operational Intelligence Maturity Index

Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced the publication of Masters of Machines, a new report from analyst firm Quocirca. The report reveals that 82% of European businesses believe they could benefit from the use of operational intelligence by collecting, storing and analyzing real-time and historical machine data to gain insights that would not otherwise be available.

The report also launches the first Operational Intelligence Maturity Index, which gives businesses a rating from 0 to 3 based on their ability to: search and investigate; proactively monitor; provide operational visibility; and deliver real-time business insights from big data. Overall, European companies scored an average of 1.92 – between poor and some capability – indicating that although they recognise the potential of machine data, in practice they have not yet fully harnessed operational intelligence.

“True operational intelligence uses the data generated by machines to access, tune and improve IT and business processes, identify security threats, highlight performance issues and spot emerging customer trends,” said Bob Tarzey, analyst, Quocirca. “Those companies who will gain the most value are those that start using machine data – everything from customer clickstreams and transaction records to logs and feeds from applications, servers, network activity and sensors – to enable practical business decision making. Making sure the right technologies are in place for better data capture and improved analysis of large volumes of machine data is essential to achieve this.”

In addition, the report finds 83% of organizations admit that they would like to improve, or aren’t currently getting, real-time business insight from their machine data.

Within European businesses, it is IT managers that have the best view of operational intelligence with over half (56%) having a comprehensive view.

This compares to just 35% of board level executives, 28% of marketing managers and 27% of product managers who respondents believed have a comprehensive view of operational intelligence.

“Advanced IT departments are accustomed to using insights from machine data to streamline processes and resolve issues, and successful security teams also regularly analyse IT data to identify potential threats,” said James Murray, vice president and general manager of EMEA, Splunk, “The real breakthrough comes when organisations use the operational data already being viewed by IT and security to provide wider business insights in real-time, ultimately aiding better decisions.”

When it comes to operational intelligence maturity, industries are ranked in the following order:

Telecoms – 2.23
Finance – 1.98
Retail, transport and distribution – 1.92
Gaming 1.91
Other commercial – 1.90
Manufacturing – 1.82

Telecoms and finance stand out because they are more ‘transactive’ than other industries, with 111,000 and 66,000 IT-driven transactions per day respectively generating considerable machine data, compared to an average volume of 40,445.
