How Splunk can help: Implementing automation and orchestration

 

Analysts today are expected to respond to threats known and unknown, working twenty-four hours a day across teams, tools, and time zones. Adding more screens often means a higher chance of missing something. What analysts need is incident response, both centralized and customizable. They also need better instant search capability and point-and-click response in the same place as detection.

Using Splunk Mission Control, available to Splunk Enterprise Security customers, you can unify your security operations to shift your operational focus from minutia to mission. Among the valuable features in Splunk Mission Control are:

  • An incident review dashboard
  • Embedded investigative searches and automation workflows for enrichment and remediation
  • An integration with Splunk Enterprise Security for identity enrichment and threat intelligence frameworks
  • An integration with Splunk Threat Intelligence Management to provide additional context and enrichment to investigations
  • Response plans that provide guided actions to ensure that incidents are handled with consistency and follow best practices
  • Audit trails of your actions
  • Embedded SPL into searches to speed up investigation times
