Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced it has achieved the International Organization for Standardization’s information security standard 27001 (ISO 27001) certification for Splunk® Cloud.

The certification is in addition to Splunk Cloud’s SOC2 Type II attestation and provides additional third-party validation of the security practices and procedures of Splunk Cloud. Splunk Cloud’s certifications for SOC2 Type II and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 currently apply to Splunk Cloud environments provisioned for data ingested over 20GB/day.
