Splunk: Software developers committed to digital resilience

After being acquired by Cisco, Cyber Magazine considers the successful software company, Splunk, on its quest to equip businesses in digital resilience

Splunk has a rich history of helping organisations enhance their digital resilience. Having been acquired by Cisco in September 2023, the company is clearly keen to continue its long-standing legacy of keeping businesses secure and resilient in a digitally-powered world.

Based in California, US, the company uses machine data for identifying data patterns, providing metrics, diagnosing problems and providing intelligence for business operations.

Aiming to be even better positioned from a cybersecurity perspective in an age of AI, Splunk works to equip customers with unified security and observability platforms to keep their organisation securely up and running, regardless of cyber incidents.

Keeping digital systems secure by developing security and observability capabilities

In the wake of a huge increase in cyber and malware attacks, it has been reported that 85% of global businesses have suffered at least one cyberattack within the last twelve months. It points to the knowledge that business leaders are anxious about the rise in attacks more than any other digital hardship a business may face.

Key facts
  • 2,200+ partners across industries
  • 13,000+ active members available to field questions, share ideas and solve problems
  • 1,800+ experts to help architect, deploy and scale depending on individual need

Splunk is known for its strengths in data observability, which ultimately helps companies monitor their systems for cybersecurity risks and other digital threats. In addition, it operates a subscription-based pricing model for customers.

The company also already has a data-security partnership with Cisco, with its more than 15,000 customers including prominent companies such as Coca-Cola, Intel and Porsche.

Splunk offers a wide range of services in digital resilience, including being able to prevent major issues and identify key risks and detect threats before they expand to major incidents. In addition, the company works with an organisation to restore critical services quickly in the wake of a cyber incident in order to minimise the impact of digital outages or breaches.

With these systems and strategies in place, Splunk is keen to help businesses accelerate transformation quickly and safely with the best possible visibility to stay secure and reliable.

Once better visibility is achieved, teams can be more proactive and automate processes and be able to focus on optimising digital experiences. 

Other ways that Splunk seeks to make a positive digital impact is by using cyber data to help bridge data gaps. The company provides technology and expertise to help ‘impact organisations’ to succeed, working across civil society, business and government. Ultimately, the goal is to offer solutions to meet the most urgent needs.

Splunk is also working to unlock the power of protective data and has a data divide hub which aims to provide insights into the company’s research and efforts on bridging the data divide. Last year, the company published a report on how the UK government uses data to tackle societal challenges, including how it handles digital security measures.
