SAN FRANCISCO -- December 11, 2013

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time operational intelligence, today announced that IDT Corporation
(NYSE: IDT), a leading telecommunications and payment services provider, is
expanding its use of Splunk® Enterprise 6 to become IDT’s core operational
intelligence platform across its entire organization. IDT originally selected
Splunk Enterprise in 2009 to manage security-related searches and later
introduced Splunk software to IT and engineering teams where Splunk is now
used around the clock for securing and troubleshooting the company’s global
telecom network. IDT now plans to replace its legacy database technology and
custom applications with Splunk Enterprise in order to centralize and gain
complete visibility across its ever-growing volumes of machine data. The new
features in Splunk Enterprise 6 support the telecom leader’s plan to visualize
and share business analytical insights with marketing and business teams.

“Splunk is a strategic part of our IT and business infrastructure because
Splunk Enterprise is a key driver of the continuous innovation happening at
IDT,” said Golan Ben-Oni, chief security officer and senior vice president of
network architecture, IDT. “Using Splunk Enterprise, we have vastly improved
our security posture and responsiveness while also increasing our network’s
effectiveness. Our business and marketing teams now eagerly anticipate the
ability to visualize and report on business-related machine data, which we
think will help us discover new market opportunities and revenue. The new
features of Splunk Enterprise 6 that make it easier for business users to be
hands on with Splunk software are a huge help in this endeavor.”

IDT plans to expand its use of Splunk Enterprise to gain visibility across the
company’s networks, servers, applications and call detail records (CDRs),
which will give the telecom company’s business executives and marketers
real-time insights into the usage patterns and trends connected to their
telecommunications products and services. These insights will enable IDT to
identify customer needs and interests more accurately as well as expand into
new, previously unidentified markets where demand can be more accurately
spotted using Splunk software.

Splunk software is already being used to help IDT in IT operations, where IDT
reports the mean time to resolve IT incidents improved by more than 20 minutes
per incident as overall network uptime dramatically increased. IDT also uses
Splunk Enterprise to continuously monitor their security systems in order to
automatically mitigate risks, detect fraud and assist with security
investigations. IDT is utilizing several Splunk apps including the Splunk App
for Enterprise Security, Splunk App for PCI Compliance, Splunk App for Palo
Alto Networks, Splunk App for Unix, and Splunk App for Microsoft Windows.

“Eight of the world’s top ten telecommunications companies use Splunk software
because of the value it delivers to the business, and IDT’s broad adoption of
the platform is a prime example of how to gain visibility into machine data
generated inside a complex telecom infrastructure,” said Vishal Rao, vice
president of Americas, Splunk. “IDT proves how effective Splunk software is at
helping improve operations, accelerate innovation and mitigate risk.”
