Traditional approaches to managing, securing, and auditing IT operations are typically complex, expensive, time-consuming to deploy, and limited to a small set of IT data sources. With Splunk IT Search, companies can now view all the data from every component of their IT infrastructures. Users can search the data quickly, identify the source of application failures or problems, investigate security incidents, easily generate the reports needed for compliance purposes, and more. With Splunk, finding and fixing problems, stopping an attacker or tracing transaction issues is made faster and easier.
