The Splunk App for Enterprise Security doubled its customer base in fiscal year 2015 and Splunk announced that a new release of the award-winning product will be generally available (GA) on April 30. The latest version of the app introduces new capabilities for rapid threat detection and response speeding the time it takes to detect advanced threats and malicious insiders.

User activity-centric dashboards and visualizations provide out-of-the-box analytics and investigation capabilities to identify suspicious, high-risk user activities and authentication behavior of a malicious insider or an advanced threat that is using legitimate credentials.
