IT Operations Management
Collect and index all the data generated by your IT infrastructure – your networks, server and guest OS, hypervisors, database audit trails, message queues. It works with any machine-generated data, including logs, file configurations, performance metrics, SNMP traps and custom application logs. And without the need for custom parsers or adapters. With Splunk you can turn silos of data into integrated, actionable information and operational insights.
IT Security and Compliance
Splunk can be set to monitor for thresholds and outliers in this data that can reveal stealthy malware activities. Splunk’s analytics language supports threat scenario based thinking that allows the security professional to ask any question of the data — ultimately searching for ‘unknown threats’.
Splunk indexes your machine data in real-time, allowing you to search, alert and report on all of it. You can generate reports in seconds while at the same time meeting requirements to collect and retain specific audit trails. Splunk’s ability to also do both security and change monitoring satisfies requirements to meet these controls.
Developing, maintaining and supporting large, complex, highly distributed, mission-critical applications is extremely challenging. Traditional Application Management approaches are ill-equipped to handle the complexity of today’s application architectures and deployment environments. Splunk provides a better approach, enabling you to find and fix application problems faster to reduce downtime, gain end-to-end operational visibility of your key performance indicators and deliver new insights from your machine data to help the business make better decisions.
From customer behaviors and usage statistics to security postures and operational analytics, Splunk has the flexibility to do any type of real-time and historical analysis, and the power to deliver custom views, reports, and dashboards to anyone in your organization.
Splunk has the unique ability to make sense of all types of machine data, structured or unstructured, and mash it up with other traditional business data for complete real-time visibility and operational intelligence.
