Use Case

Advanced threat detection

Uncover sophisticated threats and malicious insiders that bypass traditional detection methods.



You can’t stop what you can’t see

Advanced threats are elusive. Without comprehensive security monitoring and data-centric analysis, these threats may otherwise go unnoticed — damaging your business reputation and finances.

Combat threats with actionable analytics

Protect your business and mitigate risk at scale with data-driven insights from Splunk Enterprise Security.

Since implementing Splunk ES as the brain in our security nerve center, we have found Splunk to be the right solution to quickly and effectively create and implement security analytics across a wide array of data sources and security use cases ... Splunk has made it very easy to ingest data from different sources and then present them in a way that is meaningful to stakeholders, such as our board or other leadership.

Senior Vice President, Chief Global Security Officer, Aflac

Risk-based alerting

Conquer alert fatigue, attribute risk to users and systems, map alerts to cybersecurity frameworks and trigger alerts when risk exceeds thresholds.

Learn more about advanced threat detection

Advanced threat detection is a method of monitoring infrastructure to identify attacks that bypass traditional security prevention techniques. It often relies on techniques including endpoint monitoring, signature- and behavior-based detection, malware sandboxing and user and entity behavior analytics.

The purpose of advanced threat detection is to detect and mitigate an advanced attack proactively before it escalates to a breach. Doing so reduces the number and severity of compromises and improves the security of the environment. Advanced threat detection is critical to protecting data and should be integrated into an organization’s security program.

Some common strategies for advanced threat detection include creating a broad test repository, understanding the behavior of benign software and collecting data continuously to detect anomalies. Malware sandboxing is a way to isolate an application from other programs and networks so that it can execute without impacting other resources. Predictive analytics is another strategy for advanced threat detection that can help to identify malicious behavior. Signature and behavior-based threat detection is also widely used to uncover potentially malicious payloads.
