The SC Awards Europe recognised Splunk as a company providing excellence and innovation in every aspect of IT security. Paul Fisher, editor for SC Magazine commented, “The SC Awards Europe are without peer - simply the most coveted and prestigious awards for the information security industry. Our awards honor professionals working to secure enterprises of all sizes and the vendors that deliver innovative security technologies.”
“Security professionals have been frustrated at the limitations of traditional security tools used for collecting, monitoring and analysing machine data, regardless of source, type or scale. Splunk has proven key in identifying unknown security threats and advanced persistent threats, as well as for forensic investigations and monitoring for known threats,” said Splunk Chief Marketing Officer Steve Sommer. “Splunk's selection by SC Awards Europe as the Best Enterprise Security Solution is recognition of the value Splunk brings to cyber-security, including big data analytics. Splunk’s ability to manage machine data beyond traditional security silos provides users with the ability to lower their risk through monitoring and detecting sophisticated attacks, helping uncover complex fraud scenarios and faster forensic investigations.”
