Real-time threat analytics from Kaspersky now live on Splunk

Big data leader Splunk just got a bit better thanks to a partnership with Kaspersky Labs that’s seen the security firm’s real-time threat feeds custom-built for its platform.

Kaspersky’s Threat Data Feeds monitor unusual activity happening with your business data, as well as providing wider insights into things like global botnet activity.

Kaspersky says this move has been prompted by the need for greater intelligence sharing in the security industry.

“Availability in the corporate world means being compatible with third-party intelligence, analytics and security information and event management solutions widely embraced around the globe,” said Mikhail Nagorny, head of security services at Kaspersky Lab.

“Splunk software is one of those solutions and is why we make sure our data feeds fully leverage Splunk. We plan to further expand the availability of our Threat Data Feeds which help businesses respond to the latest threats from around the world as quickly as possible.”

Splunk is an IDC favourite for operational analytics because of its wide range of data sources and use cases.
