Splunk + TruSTAR Acquisition
Existing Splunk + TruSTAR Customer Questions:
Q: How will TruSTAR customers benefit from Splunk acquiring TruSTAR?
A: Data from the TruSTAR intelligence management platform can be seamlessly integrated into SIEM and SOAR workflows to provide a single, consolidated view. The TruSTAR platform will be integrated into Splunk’s security portfolio, allowing Splunk customers to autonomously enrich their SOC workflows with threat intelligence data feeds from heterogeneous sources. Ultimately, this will reduce the time it takes for customers to detect and remediate issues before they impact the business.
Q: Does TruSTAR overlap or replace existing Splunk products?
A: TruSTAR’s products are complementary to Splunk’s security portfolio and Splunk is excited about collaborating closely to help our customers enhance the effectiveness of their SOC workflows to create a more secure enterprise.
Q: For existing Splunk+TruSTAR customers, does it matter if I have a Splunk on-prem or cloud deployment?
A: No, it does not matter but TruSTAR’s premier integration is with Splunk Enterprise Security.
Q: Are there any other threat intelligence sources I can integrate through TruSTAR if I’m an existing Splunk customer?
A: Yes, Splunk currently has partnerships with additional intelligence sources, such as Intel471, etc.
