Demisto Announces a Splunk App and Mega-level Sponsorship of Splunk .conf2016 — Demisto will Highlight Intelligent Bot-powered Security ChatOps Platform for Automating Playbooks, Response Tasks and Collaboration on .conf2016 Expo Floor.
Demisto, Inc., an innovator in Security Operations technology, today announced its new Splunk app and a Mega-level sponsorship of .conf2016: The 7th Annual Splunk Conference. Demisto will demonstrate its ChatOps-based Demisto Enterprise Security Operations Platform for greatly improving security operations center (SOC) collaboration and efficiency in addressing security incidents in its booth number M1 at the event this week.
The newly announced Demisto Splunk App enables customers to send Splunk incident data directly to the Demisto Enterprise platform. With this new app, customers can accelerate the incident management and response process by automating the entire flow, starting from the Splunk alert through to an incident playbook automation in Demisto, helping increase SOC efficiencies. The app can be downloaded from the Splunkbase website.
Demisto Enterprise’s intelligent automation is provided by DBot, a security chatbot. DBot automates actions across security products and correlates artifacts across incidents by using sophisticated patterns and powerful search capabilities. DBot searches through past and ongoing forensic investigations, and proactively alerts the users when duplicate or related incidents are identified. The playbooks were developed by security and incident response experts, following National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other regulatory documents. To create new best practices, additional playbooks can be created by users to satisfy compliance and audit requirements, or for interactive modeling and training of analysts.
“We are thrilled to bring the automation and collaboration capabilities of Demisto Enterprise to Splunk customers,” said Slavik Markovich, Demisto CEO & co-founder. “With Demisto leveraging Splunk software, our customers can automate investigation and response for alerts triggered by Splunk® Enterprise or Splunk Enterprise Security (ES). Demisto’s use of Splunk solutions also allows for interactive investigation via an intuitive chat interface, enabled by security data queried from Splunk ES.”
