SAN FRANCISCO, CA: An individual can seldom create wondrous inventions or techniques when compared to think tanks and intellectuals working collectively, putting forth their ideas and setting right all the errors in tandem. In accordance with that, in order to tackle the global security crises, Splunk has announced the Adaptive Response Initiative. Through this program Splunk, an operational intelligence specialist, has connected with its peers and major-league security vendors to improve cyber defense strategies and security operations of multi-layered, heterogeneous security architectures.

“Modern cyber threats are dynamic, and attackers are constantly finding new ways to get in and exploit networks and systems. This new challenge goes well beyond preventing individual stages of an attack,” says Haiyan Song, Senior VP, Security Markets, Splunk “The mission of the Adaptive Response Initiative is to bring together the best technologies across the security industry to help organizations combat advanced attacks.” 

Apart from Splunk, the foremost members of the Adaptive Response Initiative include Carbon Black, CyberArk, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, Phantom, Tanium, ThreatConnect and Ziften. The adaptive response model combines alert and threat information from multiple security domains and technologies. This collective insight enables security teams to make better-informed decisions while validating threats and applying analytics-driven response directives to their security environment. The analytics-driven security service can help organizations to adapt and respond faster to the established threats.

“Carbon Black is pleased to align with Splunk and join the Adaptive Response Initiative,” says Tom Barsi, Senior VP of business development, Carbon Black. “Enabling organizations to accelerate and automate their incident response processes is more important than ever. Integrating Carbon Black Enterprise Response with Splunk solutions within the Adaptive Response framework will help joint customers reduce dwell time and speed up incident response by providing them with better visibility and more context so they can respond to attacks faster and more efficiently.”
