A recent press release out of the company reports, “ Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced five new members of the Splunk Adaptive Response Initiative. The growing program, initially announced last year, is a best-of-breed security initiative helping organizations better analyze, assess and respond to advanced attacks within their Security Operations Center (SOC). New members integrate security policy management, incident response and endpoint security capabilities and include AlgoSec, Demisto, RedSeal, Resolve Systems and Symantec (Advanced Threat Protection).”
The release continues, “Increasingly sophisticated cyber threats like ransomware and attacks on the Internet of Things (IoT) security are disrupting and negatively impacting businesses across the globe. To detect and respond to these threats, businesses often rely upon point security solutions when a communicative multi-vendor environment is required to gain end-to-end threat visibility. The Adaptive Response framework provided by Splunk Enterprise Security (Splunk ES) orchestrates a wide range of security capabilities, enabling point solutions to work better together. One example of this is through ForeScout, a Splunk partner and Adaptive Response member that gives joint customers such as Brown-Forman visibility and control of devices connecting to its network in order to detect threats and execute a response faster than ever before.”
It goes on, “Since its launch in 2016, the Adaptive Response Initiative has brought together over 20 industry leading security domains covering a wide range of security technologies, including next generation firewall (NGFW), endpoint security, threat intelligence, identity management, incident response and more. By working together through Splunk ES, the initiative enables customers to analyze and correlate a wide range of data across their multi-vendor environments.”
