Splunk Inc., a provider of software platforms for real-time operational intelligence, announced on Feb. 28 that Symantec has selected Splunk Enterprise 6 to help bolster its security intelligence operations.

Through this partnership, Symantec will centralize, monitor and analyze security-related data in Splunk Enterprise to help investigate incidents and detect advanced threats. Symantec will also use Splunk software to ensure comprehensive compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

“With today’s threat landscape, it’s critical that we react quickly to identify and respond to any type of threat, especially advanced threats that continue to increase in complexity,” said Julie Talbot-Hubbard, chief security officer at Symantec. “Our efforts, in combination with Splunk software, demonstrate that we are implementing best practices to not only protect our customers and partners, but also help with addressing critical customer problems.”

“Symantec is more than a valued Splunk customer, they also are a strong partner as together we help businesses and organizations tackle the toughest cybersecurity threats in the world,” said Haiyan Song, vice president of security markets at Splunk. “We look forward to seeing the Symantec security team’s accomplishments with Splunk software.”
