Accelerate your return on your Splunk investment

Prioritize the data to be ingested and increase visibility across your security environment.

Reduce the noise

Get fewer false positives while adding new Splunk log source feeds.

Improve your security posture

Strategically add new data sources while continuously validating MITRE ATT&CK® Framework coverage.

Increase your SOC’s efficiency and productivity

We do all the heavy lifting for you with the combination of our Zero Trust Analytics Platform™ (ZTAP®) and seasoned security operations center (SOC) and Threat Detection Engineering teams.

How Our MDR Service for Splunk Works

Most SIEM platforms let you ingest any data, but the value of all log sources isn’t equal. Our experts help you sort out the highest fidelity, actionable telemetry such as firewall threats, host systems, VPN and cloud security. We also use data such as DNS, firewall traffic, vulnerability and physical security, for specific detections or enrichment.

We ingest all source data into ZTAP, which is tightly integrated with Splunk, to automate the investigation and triage of alerts while eliminating false positives. True positives are then escalated to our SOC experts for further investigation.

And it doesn’t stop there. We continuously make recommendations on other data sources to add and update detection content to uncover more attacks so you get the most out of your Splunk investment.

Partnering for Your Success

Enhance the effectiveness of your MDR while simplifying breach prevention.

Onboard quickly:

We use a proven process that shortens the time it takes to get your operations live. The total onboarding process normally takes 4-6 weeks, but you will begin to realize value in a matter of days.

Personalize based on your unique requirements:

To improve threat detection and enrich the content needed for investigations, we’ll help you prioritize your Splunk data sources and create playbooks to reduce false positives.

Investigate and resolve alerts:

You get 24x7x365 security monitoring, investigation and response from our U.S.-based SOC with complete transparency and guaranteed one-hour SLAs for Time to Detection and Median Time to Resolution on every alert.

You can expect an approximately 90% reduction in false positives on the first day of production monitoring. We also boost your team’s efficiency by escalating only 1-2 alerts a day, and we never send you the same alert twice.

Mature your Splunk investment:

Our relationship continues after onboarding is complete. Your named Customer Success Manager will check in with you regularly to make sure that our services are still meeting your needs — even as your requirements change.

As we work together, we continue to help you achieve full operating potential for threat detection. As a result, your team will have more time to focus on strategic initiatives, and you’ll get the most out of your Splunk security investment.
