Splunk Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM


Splunk Inc., the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that it has been named a leader in Gartner's 2013 Magic Quadrant* for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Gartner evaluated Splunk® Enterprise and the Splunk App for Enterprise Security. Splunk Enterprise is used as a big data security intelligence platform by more than 2,000 organizations around the world.

Splunk's move into the leaders quadrant coincides with a disruption happening at many traditional SIEM deployments. "During the past year, demand for SIEM technology has remained strong.... We continue to see large companies that are re-evaluating SIEM vendors to replace SIEM technology associated with partial, marginal or failed deployments," according to the report authors Mark Nicolett managing vice president and Kelly Kavanagh principal analyst, security, risk and compliance, Gartner. "The greatest area of unmet need is effective targeted attack and breach detection.... The situation can be improved with better threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics.... Several SIEM vendors are beginning to position their technologies as platforms that can provide security, operations and application analytics." Gartner added, "Scalability is a major consideration with SIEM deployments."
