Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) is a perfect choice for rapid incident response and for continuous, real-time monitoring of business risk. Splunk ES can be deployed as software, as a cloud service, in a public or private cloud, or in a hybrid software-cloud deployment. 
We have seen a growing number of organisations are using Splunk to augment or replace their existing SIEM deployment. Why?

Splunk ES provides ability to collect data insights generated from security technologies such as network, endpoint, access, malware, vulnerability & identity information and correlate it for investigative analysis by security teams.

With dynamic, visual views and searches it can perform a real time monitoring and alerting to fit your specific business needs, enabling security teams to quickly detect and respond to internal and external attacks, to simplify threat management while minimizing risk and safeguarding your business. 

Splunk Enterprise Security streamlines all aspects of security operations and is suitable for organisations of all sizes and expertise.

Splunk Enterprise Security helps organisations address the following:

      • Real Time Monitoring 
        Get a clear visual picture of the organisation’s security posture, easily customise views and drill down to the raw event
      • Prioritise and Act 
        Gain a security-specific view of your data to increase detection capabilities and optimize incident response
      • Rapid Investigations 
        Use ad hoc search and static, dynamic and visual correlations to determine malicious activities
      • Handle Multi-Step Investigations
        Conduct breach and investigative analyses to trace the dynamic activities associated with advanced threats

Gartner recently published two new reports: the 2016 Magic Quadrant (MQ) and the 2016 Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). In both reports, Gartner evaluated Splunk Enterprise and the Splunk Enterprise Security solution placing Splunk in the Leaders and positioning Splunk furthest overall for its completeness of vision. 

Splunk improves the detection and response to advanced threats by providing broad security intelligence and advanced methods necessary to implement for sophisticated threat detection monitoring and insider threat use cases.
