Use behavioral analytics service with Splunk Enterprise Security 7.1.0 or higher
This topic applies only to customers on the Splunk Cloud platform.
If you have enabled Splunk Enterprise Security version 7.1 or higher, you can also provision behavioral analytics service on a tenant in Splunk Cloud Solutions.
Behavioral analytics service is a cloud-native analytics solution that streams data from your platform to a shared service for processing and helps investigative analysts uncover hidden threats. This service uses a near real-time analytics engine that integrates with Splunk Enterprise Security's risk-based alerting framework (RBA) to improve insider threat detection without adding to alert fatigue in your security operations center (SOC). It brings streaming analytics capabilities to the Splunk Cloud Platform environment and provides security visibility to uncover hidden and unknown threats that cannot be easily detected through searches.
