How to Triage Splunk Alerts Faster
November 10, 2020 • Ellen Wilson
As IT environments continue to grow in size and complexity, security operations (SecOps) and incident response teams are inundated with alerts on anomalous behavior, potentially malicious network activity, data breaches, and more.
Valuable security tools like Splunk make it possible to manage these threats to your organization. However, for these teams, a significant portion of each day is dedicated to responding to alerts generated by an internal SIEM system — and the average organization can only investigate 48% of the security alerts they receive, according to Cisco.
Security analysts need a way to dramatically reduce alert triage and investigation time, quickly prioritize which IOCs to focus on, and resolve more incidents faster to disrupt adversaries.
