Splunk launches Adaptive Response Initiative
The company is collaborating with vendors to help combat cyber threats
Splunk has teamed up with vendors to help organisations better prepare themselves to fight cyber attacks using insights from its real-time operational intelligence.
The Adaptive Resonse Initiative comprises Acalvio, Anomali, Cisco, CrowdStrike, DomainTools, ForeScout, Okta, Proofpoint, Qualys, Recorded Future and Symantec, all working together to help companies protect themselves against new and rapidly developing threats.
"It is important that we enable collaborative architectures so our customers can extend analytics-driven decisions across a multi-vendor security technology stack," said Haiyan Song, senior vice president of security markets at Splunk.
"Splunk welcomes the new participants of the Adaptive Response Initiative and is excited to deliver the new framework in Splunk ES. This helps the security industry to work closer together while helping organisations to leverage intelligence and automation to better defend against attacks."
Splunk explained that despite hundreds of companies offering security technologies, many solutions aren't designed to work hand-in-hand with other technologies out of the box. Coupled with the changing landscape of cyber threats, it's a risky time for companies.
The Adaptive Response Inititive aims to quash these challenges by leveraging adaptive security architecture that offers end-to-end context and automated response across 20 security technologies, offering an instant way of detecting and eradicating threats.
"The pace and variety of today's cyberattacks combined with a wide range of security tools in the typical enterprise make for a daunting challenge for security professionals," said Scott Crawford, research director of information security at 451 Research. "For real visibility and a truly actionable approach, enterprises demand a level of multi-vendor integration across silos and tools that goes beyond the efforts of the past.
"The Adaptive Response capabilities in Splunk Enterprise Security provide the centerpiece of a flexible, ecosystem-driven approach to combat advanced attacks through a more coordinated, automated response."
