ForeScout Joins Splunk’s Adaptive Response Initiative
September 2016 by Marc Jacob
ForeScout Technologies, Inc. and Splunk Inc. announced that ForeScout has joined Splunk’s Adaptive Response Initiative. Powered by a growing list of leading cybersecurity technology vendors, Adaptive Response is a best-of-breed security initiative that leverages end-to-end context and continuous response to help organisations improve security operations with an adaptive security architecture.
Following its unveiling at RSA Conference 2016, the Adaptive Response Initiative now includes more than 20 participating vendors as members. With this extensive network, organisations can use the Adaptive Response framework in Splunk® ES to further interact with data, extract and share new insights, gather more context and invoke actions across key security and IT domains. Ultimately, this enables customers to detect threats faster, make analytics-driven decisions and improve operational efficiencies within their Security Operations Centre (SOC).
While many organisations employ a layered, multi-vendor approach to security, most individual solutions are not designed to work together outside of the box. Splunk Enterprise Security, working in conjunction with technologies like CounterACT, works as the nerve centre for security and extends analytics-driven decision-making – improving detection, investigation and remediation times, information sharing and response.
