Splunk Cloud Platform helps us with our security incident response. The cloud security logs are integrated with all the cloud providers. The federated search feature enables us to search between Europe and the US, from one Splunk instance to another, all from a single location. This federated search simplifies how we handle data, making it easy to swiftly search for and manage information. We monitor several cloud environments and find it easy to utilize the Splunk Cloud Platform for this purpose. Each cloud provider offers its own prebuilt dashboard, or customers can create their own. The Splunk Cloud Platform offers excellent visibility into multiple environments. In the past, we utilized hybrid integrations, and they seamlessly worked right out of the box. The reporting functionality provided by the Splunk Cloud Platform resembles that of the on-premise platform. It is readily available without requiring integration or the installation of reporting visualizations. From a security standpoint, the Splunk Cloud Platform provides us with comprehensive visibility into all security logs. This enables us to implement security incident responses with great efficiency. Additionally, we have discovered that internal employees, such as product teams, are utilizing the platform as intended for various other use cases. For instance, it has proven valuable in troubleshooting performance issues and monitoring within Kubernetes. As such, we are leveraging a wide array of use cases within the company. Splunk is a highly mature software that has been in the market for many years, which greatly influenced our decision-making process. Another factor was the user-friendly nature of the latest version, making it easy to initiate. We don't require a large workforce for installing components; it's as simple as out-of-the-box. Consequently, minimal time investment is needed for training. The Splunk Cloud Platform assists us in accessing data to meet critical compliance and privacy regulations. For instance, this is particularly important for regulations such as GDPR and HIPAA. We are utilizing Splunk Cloud with a specific focus on HIPAA compliance, allocating extra attention to this aspect. In the case of GDPR, Splunk offers a range of built-in capabilities. For instance, it allows for log masking. Moreover, there are novel features available in Splunk Cloud, such as ingest actions. This feature is exceptionally useful as it enables us to mask the data before it's ingested into Splunk. Consequently, this approach ensures our adherence to compliance regulations, exemplified by GDPR. The Splunk Cloud Platform has had a significant impact on our organization's security posture. It serves as our primary visibility tool and is the main source of trust for all login activities. Without Splunk, we would lose essential visibility and access to security updates. Currently, Splunk stands as one of the primary tools we utilize due to its utmost importance.
