Splunk announced investments in two companies - Acalvio and Insight Engines - to further drive innovation and extend the power and reach of the Splunk Platform.
Acalvio is an innovator in advanced threat defense whose technology leverages and integrates with Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) to combat cyberthreats.
Insight Engines empowers Splunk users to search and analyze data within Splunk solutions using natural language search to quickly draw actionable insights from machine data.
“The Splunk Platform is open and extensible. As our business evolves, it is increasingly important for us to support the developers and partners who are building their businesses around our open ecosystem,” said Doug Merritt, President and CEO, Splunk. “Splunk invested in Acalvio and Insight Engines because they are innovative companies helping to drive tremendous value to our mutual customers, and we are excited to see their impact to our ecosystem.”
“We built our solution to leverage the Splunk Platform and are thrilled to have Splunk as an early investor and advisor,” said Ram Varadarajan, co-founder and CEO, Acalvio. “Splunk’s analytics-driven security is leading the evolution of SIEM and beyond. Our Deception 2.0 solution, when combined with the Adaptive Response framework in Splunk ES, will help organizations detect, engage and respond to advanced attacks in a precise and timely manner.”
“Splunk’s ability to ingest, process and analyze machine data at scale allows us to extend its power by utilizing human language to produce actionable intelligence from data,” said Grant Wernick, CEO and co-founder, Insight Engines. “Cyber Security Investigator, launching at .conf2016, is the first product resulting from our work on the Splunk Platform. It is exciting to demonstrate the product to the Splunk ecosystem and to have the backing of Splunk so we can more closely align our technology with Splunk customers and partners.”
