Why Analytics-Driven Security is the Way to Go

LockSince advanced security threats are hard to detect, simple monitoring of traditional security events is no longer enough. Organizations need to be armed with a complete security posture that taps their data, providing valuable context to help you make faster and smarter security decisions.

According to a recent Gartner study, by 2020, 60% of enterprise information security budgets will be allocated for rapid detection and response approaches, up from less than 30% in 2016. The shift is coming. Gartner states that security officers will work more like intelligence officers.

It’s important to quickly adapt to this shift. Using analytics-driven security helps you stay ahead of attacks – external or internal – and protects your organization from costly compromises.

Here are seven ways you can protect your organization from advanced threats using Splunk Enterprise Security:

  1. Insider Threat Detection – Automatically detect insider threats using machine learning, behavior baselines, peer group analytics and behavior analytics.
  2. Advanced Threat Detection – You can use kill chain analysis to trace different stages of an advanced threat, link the sequence of events and enable targeted remediation.
  3. Fraud Detection and Investigation – Detect, investigate and report on a range of fraud, theft and abuse activities in real time.
  4. SIEM – Use for enterprise SIEM use cases such as incident review, incident management support, analytics and behavior profiling, threat intelligence and ad hoc search.
  5. Rapid Incident Investigations – Collaboration enables SOC analysts and hunters across an organization to rapidly investigate incidents using ad hoc searches with existing correlation based on all security-relevant data.
  6. Compliance Reporting – Create correlation rules and reports to identify threats to sensitive data or key employees and to automatically demonstrate compliance or identify areas of non-compliance in regard to technical controls.
  7. Log Management – Consolidate, collect, store, index, search, correlate, visualize, analyze and report on any security relevant machine-generated data to identify and quickly resolve security issues.
