advanced #SecurityIntelligence to #ProtectWhatMatters — data in all

"Vormetric's mission is to protect what matters – the data. By working
together, Vormetric and Splunk deliver advanced security intelligence that
spans the needs of any organization," said C.J. Radford, Vormetric VP of
Cloud. "By combining Vormetric Data Security (VDS) and Splunk's advanced
analysis and intelligence capabilities, organizations can now extend their
data protection capabilities; better controlling privileged user access and
preventing data breaches from occurring."

"We are pleased to add Vormetric to the growing ecosystem of Splunk partners
all utilizing Splunk Enterprise as a big data security intelligence platform,"
said Bill Gaylord, Splunk SVP of Business Development. "Many organizations
understand that data and system access is the first step to understanding and
isolating potential data breaches due to malicious insiders or advanced
threats. Splunk and Vormetric together can quickly and efficiently help
businesses protect intellectual property and other data the business wishes to
be kept private."

By combining Vormetric's detailed security intelligence information about
access to sensitive data with Splunk's data analysis capabilities,
organizations can recognize unusual patterns that may indicate a compromised
account and, in so doing, deliver true data security. VDS for Splunk provides
a number of security intelligence reports and enables search operations that
can be used to extract information from the log streams produced by Vormetric
encryption agents and the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM).

This solution also delivers the capability to "watch the watcher", detecting
attacks against not only the data, but also against data security management
infrastructure and accounts. Organizations can identify unusual and anomalous
accesses patterns by security administrators that may indicate a malicious
insider within the security organization, or a security administrative account
that has been compromised.

VDS for Splunk gives current customers access to all of the security
intelligence data supplied by Vormetric's market leading Data Firewall™
technology. This technology allows enterprises to protect both structured and
unstructured data on servers with integrated encryption and key management,
access control to encrypted data, and then to report on who is accessing that
information. The solution supports all of the major platforms – Linux, Unix,
Windows – and can be used in physical, virtual and cloud environments – making
it perfect for the flexible locations and work styles of most Splunk users.
