Splunk has made innovations to its unified security and observability platform to help organizations become safer and more resilient, according to a prepared statement.

Security operations centers (SOCs) can now utilize the Splunk Mission Control unified security solution to detect, investigate and respond to threats from a single interface, the company said. Mission Control also provides SOCs with security analytics, automation and orchestration capabilities and threat intelligence.

In addition, Splunk has updated its Observability Platform to help IT and DevOps teams troubleshoot incidents, the company indicated. IT and DevOps teams can use the Splunk Incident Intelligence tool (which is integrated into Splunk's Observability Platform) to diagnose and remediate incidents.

Introducing Splunk Edge Processor

Along with updating its unified security and observability platform, Splunk has released its Edge Processor solution to provide its Cloud Platform customers with visibility into and control over streaming data before it leaves their networks, the company said.

Organizations can use Edge Processor to filter, mask and route data, the company noted. It also helps organizations get the most value out of the Splunk Search Processing Language (SPL2,) which is designed to simplify data search and preparation.

Splunk Acquires Cybersecurity Startup, Bolsters Leadership

Splunk in November 2022 purchased TwinWave Security, a company that specializes in security automation, threat analysis and incident response. Splunk customers can utilize TwinWave's products and services to detect, analyze and respond to security threats.

Furthermore, Splunk named TwinWave CEO and co-founder Mike Horn as its senior vice president and general manager of security. TwinWave co-founders Bryan Burns and Will Metcalf and other senior technology and product leaders also have joined Splunk’s security product and engineering teams.

Splunk provides enterprise security, security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) and other security solutions to global organizations. It offers the Partnerverse partner program. To date, more than 2,400 partners have joined this program.
