Leveraging critical vulnerability insights for effective incident response


Organizations depend on Splunk to harness operational IT, OT, and Active Directory (AD) data to detect and respond quickly to threats. Without the ability to integrate critical vulnerability intelligence into the Splunk platform, security leaders are at risk of weakening incident investigations by not having full security context to take the right actions.

How to use Splunk software for this use case

The Tenable integrations with Splunk combine Tenable’s Exposure insights with Splunk’s correlation capabilities for complete visibility into all assets across the modern attack surface and their potential vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and unpatched components. With the combined solutions, organizations gain oversight in a unified threat detection, investigation and response analytics platform. Using Tenable and Splunk together enables joint customers to sync IT, Cloud, OT and AD vulnerability information, prioritize vulnerability remediation based on actual risk, request a remediation scan, and view the latest vulnerability summary for a machine during an investigation.

The integration works in the following way:

  1. All vulnerabilities are gathered from Tenable.
  2. Tenable data is indexed into the Splunk platform.
  3. Tenable data is searchable and reportable in default Splunk reports and the Tenable App for Splunk.
  4. Invoke Adaptive Response actions to enrich notable events.


When you have the Tenable integration for Splunk configured, you have the ability to:

  • Discover additional hosts that were previously unknown to Splunk
  • Enrich existing events with vulnerability context and state information
  • Centralize vulnerability alerting and reporting
  • Respond faster to the most critical vulnerabilities with Predictive Prioritization
  • Utilize Adaptive Response Actions with Splunk Enterprise Security (optional)
  • Sync vulnerability information, including state from Tenable platforms
  • Prioritize remediation based on the likelihood of a vulnerability being exploited
  • Scan a host during an investigation
  • Request a remediation scan during an investigation (
  • Get the latest vulnerability summary for a host during an investigation
  • View a single dashboard with configured vulnerability feeds
