Next-gen security intelligence solution addresses known and unknown threats.

Splunk, a provider of software for real-time operational intelligence, has announced the general availability of its Enterprise Security Intelligence Solution.

The solution consists of the Splunk App for Enterprise Security 2.0, and Splunk Enterprise 4.3, the company's flagship software for collecting, indexing and harnessing machine data, Slunk said in a statement.

"While more and more organisations are embracing the power of big data, many are ignoring the security threats that lurk within that information," said Christina Noren, senior vice president of solutions for Splunk. "Customers who use Splunk Enterprise to monitor and analyse machine data to gain insights into their operations in real-time can use the Splunk App for Enterprise Security to monitor, identify, investigate and respond to critical known and unknown security threats."

"Big data and security analytics have become joined at the hip as of late," said Andrew Hay, senior analyst for 451 Research's Enterprise Security Practice (ESP). "The 'out-of-the-box' security content of the new Splunk App for Enterprise Security, combined with the big data analytics capabilities of the Splunk platform, delivers users a SIEM-like experience for massive data sets."

The new Splunk App for Enterprise Security 2.0 builds upon the innovation of previous product releases, and leverages the Splunk Enterprise software, adding many benefits for security teams and support for risk management, a Splunk official said.
