The Splunk App for Enterprise Security provides the security practitioner with visibility into security-relevant threats found in today's enterprise infrastructure. Through the use of Splunk's unique and powerful search correlation and reporting capabilities, Enterprise Security provides a top-down and bottom-up view of an organization's security posture. The Splunk App for Enterprise Security is built on the Splunk Operational Intelligence platform and leverages Splunk's native search and correlation capabilities, allowing Enterprise Security customers to capture, monitor, and report on data from enterprise security devices, systems, and applications. As issues are identified, security administrators can quickly investigate and resolve the security threats in the areas of Access Protection, Endpoint Protection, and Network Protection.
