SAN FRANCISCO -- March 31, 2014

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for
real-time operational intelligence, today announced version 3.0 of the Splunk®
App for Microsoft Exchange. The latest version, combined with Splunk
Enterprise, provides real-time visibility into the health of the Microsoft
Exchange environment, including message delivery components and the supporting
IT infrastructure. New out-of-the-box dashboards and reports in the app
correlate Exchange, Active Directory® and Windows® operating systems data to
enable proactive monitoring of the email service and provide deep visibility
into usage and behavior to better inform capacity planning and maximize
uptime. Splunk will demo the new app at booth #805 at the Microsoft Exchange
Conference in Austin, TX, from March 31 – April 2, 2014. Version 3.0 of the
Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange will be generally available on April 15,
2014.

“The messaging infrastructure is critical to organizations of all sizes. A
disruption in email can damage the reputation of an IT department or the
entire organization through lost orders, broken customer communications and
chaotic internal communications,” said Leena Joshi, senior director of
infrastructure operations marketing, Splunk. “The new version of the Splunk
App for Microsoft Exchange includes pre-built correlations between Microsoft
Exchange data and data from supporting infrastructure, specifically Windows OS
and Microsoft Active Directory. This delivers the most accurate picture of
email service health, performance, security and user experience across the
messaging infrastructure.”

“The Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange is bar none the best app we've seen on
the market for maintaining optimal Exchange network health. Easy to deploy, it
provides extraordinary value to dozens of our customers across industries,”
said Sean Wilkerson, senior security consultant and co-founder, Aplura,LLC,
an IT Security consulting firm. “Our Exchange administrators and cybersecurity
customers appreciate the instant visibility the app provides into their entire
enterprise messaging infrastructure, and the ability to correlate information
about service health with infrastructure performance. These insights enable
customers to proactively resolve issues, avoid service degradation and
downtime, and save big on storage costs.”

“It's easy to dismiss email as a ‘keeping the lights on’ concern managedin
the backwaters of IT but the fact is it's a mission-critical servicefor
almost every business,” said Michael Coté, research director,infrastructure
software, 451 Research. “Companies need tools to monitorand diagnose problems
in their email systems, often down to the smallestminutia. Splunk typically
excels at deep dive analysis and broad-rangingreporting so their move to
provide visibility into the Microsoft Infrastructure, and more specifically,
Microsoft Exchange will likely behelpful for teams beset with keeping email
services up and planning futureinfrastructure investments.”

    relationships among performance, health and security events using prebuilt
