Forescout Leverages Splunk to Deliver Automated and Continuous Response, Optimize Analytics-Driven Security and Improve Operational Efficiency

SAN JOSE, CA & .conf2016, ORLANDO – September 28, 2016 Forescout Technologies, Inc., the pioneer in agentless cybersecurity, and Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that Forescout has joined Splunk’s Adaptive Response Initiative. Powered by a growing list of leading cybersecurity technology vendors, Adaptive Response is a best-of-breed security initiative that leverages end-to-end context and continuous response to help organizations improve security operations with an adaptive security architecture. The announcement was made at .conf2016: Splunk’s 7th annual conference.

Following its unveiling at RSA Conference 2016, the Adaptive Response Initiative now includes more than 20 participating vendors as members. With this extensive network, organizations can use the Adaptive Response framework in Splunk® ES to further interact with data, extract and share new insights, gather more context and invoke actions across key security and IT domains. Ultimately, this enables customers to detect threats faster, make analytics-driven decisions and improve operational efficiencies within their Security Operations Center (SOC).

“Forescout is collaborating with Splunk to further implement best practices around network intelligence and automated endpoint detection and response in order to help limit breaches,” said Rob Greer, Chief Marketing Officer and SVP of Products, Forescout. “Through the Adaptive Response Initiative, together Forescout CounterACT® and Splunk ES will equip customers with the in-depth endpoint and network intelligence necessary to help prioritize incidents and mitigate threats with orchestrated response capabilities. This partnership will help to limit data breaches by providing an opportunity for customers to make more precise and automated responses to threats such as anomalous access, compliance gaps and compromised devices.”

While many organizations employ a layered, multi-vendor approach to security, most individual solutions are not designed to work together outside of the box. Splunk Enterprise Security, working in conjunction with technologies like CounterACT, works as the nerve center for security and extends analytics-driven decision-making – improving detection, investigation and remediation times, information sharing and response.

“We created the Adaptive Response Initiative to enable organizations to efficiently combat advanced attacks while utilizing their existing security architectures. Members like Forescout are key to the success of Adaptive Response,” said Haiyan Song, Senior Vice President of Security Markets, Splunk. “Together we will help solve this very challenging problem facing every enterprise.”
