Tanium Launches App for Splunk Enterprise to Extend Reach of Real-Time Cyber Threat Neutralization

October 8, 2014, BERKELEY, Calif. -- Systems and security management company Tanium today announced the Tanium App for Splunk® Enterprise. The Tanium App for Splunk Enterprise leverages Tanium’s endpoint threat detection and response capabilities to collect and analyze that data in Splunk Enterprise, a Big Data security analytics platform, to better understand cyber threats and anomalies detected in Tanium data.

“People have simply never had this level of access and control at enterprise scale. Companies typically spend days, if not weeks, trying to deal with such attacks. We are changing the paradigm completely.”

The Tanium App for Splunk Enterprise asks a fixed set of questions to all Tanium agents. It then brings the data into Splunk Enterprise for analysis, correlation, alerting and visualization. The app offers drill-down details on such critical items as application and process information, suspicious open ports, external connections, network information, as well as detailed asset management data gathered by Tanium agents. Splunk Enterprise’s enrichment capabilities can add context provided by external machine data sources across the enterprise. Splunk Enterprise also enables correlation of Tanium’s endpoint threat detection information with network level data, external threat intelligence feeds, or any application data point that is relevant in solving the security equation.

“I view the combination of the Tanium and Splunk platforms as a positive development in cyber security,” said Jon Oltsik, an analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. “This app offers large enterprises the ability to address risks associated with a previously unmanaged network segment or device. We are not just talking about seeing and preventing attacks, but also improving the time-to-response.”

“Managing security in a distributed environment with 500,000 computers around the world is no small feat, and when a successful spear-phishing attack is unfolding, time is of the essence. Our combined solution helps shorten time to remediation,” said Didi Dayton, VP of WW Strategic Alliances at Tanium. “People have simply never had this level of access and control at enterprise scale. Companies typically spend days, if not weeks, trying to deal with such attacks. We are changing the paradigm completely.”

“Splunk’s mission is to make machine data accessible, usable and valuable for everyone. The Tanium App for Splunk Enterprise adds contextual information about the endpoint, allowing organizations to correlate this information to gain operational and security intelligence,” said Haiyan Song, Senior Vice President of Security Markets, Splunk.

Tanium is also a Sponsor of .conf 2014, The Fifth Annual Worldwide Splunk Users’ Conference and will be showing a demo of the app at the conference.
