“With the ever-changing IT landscape, companies have recognized the tremendous value associated with IT Search, especially to improve their security posture,” said Erik Swan, chief technology officer, Splunk. “Splunk’s selection by the SC Magazine readers as the Best Integrated Security Solution in EMEA is a reflection of the power of IT Search for security and compliance, providing users with the ability to dramatically speed investigations and lower their exposure through monitoring and detecting attacks."
Splunk, also a finalist in the SC Magazine US award program, was recognized with the Best Integrated Security Solution in the EMEA region by readers representing information technology’s most knowledgeable security professionals. Splunk's innovative security and compliance capabilities deliver companies, including prominent EMEA customers such as Telenor, Gala Coral, Crosskey Banking Solutions, Carlson Marketing, and PostFinance, the ability to quickly search and analyze their entire IT infrastructure from a single location in real time. Most customers achieve a reduction in incident investigation times of 50 to 90 percent, not only lowering incident response costs, but also dramatically reducing risk as attack windows are shortened.
"Our judges have recognized the Splunk IT Search Platform for its ability to address pressing IT security challenges facing the industry today," said Paul Fisher, editor in chief, SC Magazine. "It's a well deserved testament to Splunk's success in helping organizations tackle IT security on a day-to-day basis."
