Effective Compliance Reporting must be able to analyse raw data and yield real-time incident alerts.
Blue Turtle’s Compliance Reporting solution can help your IT team retain insight into compliance status and respond to incidents as required
The Splunk solution is an efficient alternative to manual Compliance Reporting. Splunk can help SOC personal respond to incidents faster and more cost effectively by indexing all data sources across the security and IT stack to quickly find the needle in the haystack.
Lower risk, improve security posture and reduce operational complexity
Meeting compliance mandates has caused vendors to build log management solutions that focus on storage and canned reporting but don’t make the data useful for day-to-day operations, security, and the deluge of one-off requests from auditors. Log data is the definitive record of what’s happening in a business or agency and is an underutilised important source of truth for troubleshooting issues and supporting broader business objectives. Your business needs application logs and other machine data that are highly variable, and in some cases unstructured, contain important data that traditional log management solutions don’t support or simply miss.
Understand Your Real Time Business Story Using Log Data
Customers use Splunk software to improve analysis of log data, to better manage their business. Splunk software automatically indexes all of the data, including structured, unstructured and complex multi-line application log data, enabling you to search on all of the data without need for custom connectors and without the scalability limitations inherent in traditional solutions. Once the data is in Splunk, you can quickly search, report and diagnose operations and security issues in a faster, repeatable and affordable way
With Splunk, your log management becomes the key to insight—not a chore to be avoided.
Meeting compliance regulations means monitoring people, processes and technology to ensure that users are accessing only the data they need, when they need it. Because all of the human-to-machine and machine-to-machine interactions are logged, the requirements for securing and storing log data are at the heart of most compliance regulations.
Compliance audits can be challenging since they typically cross the disparate data, systems and activities of IT operations and security. It is not unusual to have separate audit teams using different tools audit the same data for different compliance mandates.
Splunk allows you to conduct compliance audits and meet all compliance requirements – from audit trail collection and reporting, to file integrity monitoring – with a single solution
Compliance mandates such as PCI, HIPAA and FISMA require businesses to protect, track and control access to sensitive information. Each requirement has its own set of complicated, costly and time-consuming demands. Each auditor may use different methods and measures for compliance. The one constant is your log data—the definitive record of human-to-machine and machine-to-machine interactions.
Compliance requirements to monitor logs and changes often drive costly investments in SIEM, change monitoring and other technologies to implement specific monitoring and controls. Compliance also impacts day-to-day operations with segregation of duties keeping developers and operational teams off production systems, which in turn affects troubleshooting and system availability.
The hundreds of customers using Splunk for compliance routinely comment on their ability to quickly close compliance gaps, enable greater levels of automation to meet compliance mandates and demonstrate compliance across all requirements from a single system. Splunk can help you perform analysis and determine regulatory compliance of people, processes and technologies.
