Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time
operational intelligence, today announced Splunk® Enterprise has been selected
as the Reader Trust Award winner in the Best Security Information Event
Management (SIEM) Appliance category of the 2013 SC Awards. Splunk Enterprise
was selected by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine
readership, comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major
vertical markets, including financial services, healthcare, government,
retail, education and other sectors.

“We are pleased to have been honored by SC Magazine readers and security
practitioners. This is the first time a software-based big data platform has
won this award and is a clear indication that security intelligence is
undergoing a radical and needed shift,” said Tim Mather, chief information
security officer and vice president of security and compliance, Splunk.
“Detecting advanced persistent attacks requires a new kind of thinking that
only big data solutions such as Splunk Enterprise can support. Expanding the
scope and breadth of data types available to security professionals enables
them to more quickly react to data patterns across the entire organization.
This creates a security posture that is only limited by your ability to think
like an adversary.”

“Our readers are the most knowledgeable security professionals in the
industry, so it is quite a statement to be selected by SC Magazine readers as
the best,” said Illena Armstrong, vice president of editorial, SC Magazine.
“Congratulations to Splunk for representing industry leadership, not only to
