Cyber-security company, Fortinet, has partnered with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) company, Splunk.
Through the alliance, Fortinet aims to give better response times and mitigation capabilities as part of its Splunk software deployments designed to thwart fast-acting cyber threats.
Fortinet said, in a statement, that its FortiGate App for Splunk Enterprise aims to deliver real-time multivariate threat querying, visualisation and anomalous behavior detection within the context of an organisation’s security data.
The company also said the interoperability with Splunk’s collaborative security model enables IT teams to accelerate and automate defence against threats.
Fortinet A/NZ and South Pacific Islands senior director, Jon McGettigan, claimed the strategic alliance with Splunk is a proof point of Fortinet’s enterprise capabilities.
“Traditional, siloed security solutions are inadequate. A collaborative security model that extends the aggregate awareness and capability of the siloed solutions is required to strengthen the enterprise defence posture,” he said.
Splunk senior vice-president of security markets, Haiyan Song, said by harnessing the threat data captured by the FortiGate devices and translating it into actionable intelligence and remediation steps, enterprise can leverage Splunk as the nerve center in their command centers to fight hackers and other threats.
“The ability to more seamlessly bring security logs and threat intelligence from Fortinet into Splunk Enterprise and Enterprise Security represents a leap forward for our joint customers,” Song added.
