Splunk was named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant for SIEM™ for the ninth consecutive year. We believe it's important recognition because BlueVoyant is a long-term Splunk Premier MSP Partner. To show our growing investment in Splunk's vision as it continues to dominate beyond SIEM, we have hundreds of Splunk MDR clients and thousands of Splunk professional services engagements.

There were three important key strengths for Splunk: Packaged security features, IT observability coupled with security, and security operation user experience. The report also highlighted unique customer challenges for each of the 16 SIEMs reviewed.

Packaged security features, like Enterprise Security, are key to BlueVoyant’s suite of Expeditionary Workshops, where we focus on bringing value out of its core features. While these packaged features help prioritize and investigate, often more is needed to effectively manage core security technologies and scale security operations.

BlueVoyant simplifies that complexity and bridges the expertise gap. By combining a team of world-class cybersecurity experts, industry-best data, and process automation, BlueVoyant Core: MDR™ for Splunk Cloud serves as an extension of a company’s security team. Core MDRdelivers a level of protection to help businesses sustainably protect themselves in a changing landscape, identifies and mitigates threats as they emerge, and ensures businesses and wider ecosystems are always prepared for rapid, effective response and threat neutralization.

BlueVoyant’s acquisition of Concanon brings the required expertise in mapping out an effective and efficient strategy across Splunk to include observability. Concanon provides Splunk Professional Services around ITSI, Application Monitoring, and Synthetic Monitoring. These services help customers realize how data can answer tough questions in their IT and business environments. The general approach within the Splunk ecosystem saves costs and drives better decision-making across both IT and security.

We believe the security operations user experience, as highlighted in the report, is where BlueVoyant MDR for Splunk Cloud assists your team with the monitoring and protection of your assets and resources in your Splunk environment. We offer a co-managed SIEM, maximizing your investment in Splunk technology. Part of our offering includes a complete portfolio of quick time-to-value security services, weekly security detection content updates, and event flow health monitoring alongside your team.

Our consulting, 24x7 monitoring, and content engineering teams quickly mitigate business risk, enable security at scale, and support you wherever you are in your Splunk journey.
