Splunk Apps to maximise your Splunk investment

4Data Solutions offers a series of apps designed to help you get more from your Splunk investment.

Splunk Enterprise has basic alerting capabilities out-of-the-box. The more granular and advanced alerting features only come with premium apps like Enterprise Security. This leaves a gap around the control of alerting for most Splunk users. Alert Manager provides this much-needed but missing functionality.

Alert Manager Enterprise App

Manage your Splunk Security Events

The Alert Manager Enterprise (AME) App helps IT Ops and Security teams manage their alerts within Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud.

AME addresses the lack of native alert and incident management features in Splunk Enterprise. Currently, third-party tools are required to meet this need, but the AME App offers powerful incident management capabilities from within Splunk Enterprise, leveraging strong security and multi-tenancy features.

Investigating and analysing alerts without switching tools speeds up root cause analysis and security investigations tremendously. AME is the solution to go from alerts to actionable insights.

With AME, you can move beyond simple fire-and-forget email alerting. The integrated notification schemes allow sending the right information to the right person through the right channel.

AME provides role-based access control to your managed events. For service providers, multi-tenancy can handle all tenants from one front end without compromising security.

The in-built Security Knowledge Pack containing the Cyber Kill Chain and Mitre Att&ck Framework helps security specialists to classify events quickly.

Businesses using Alert Manager Enterprise see results quickly due to easy deployment/configuration and operations.

  • EIntuitive User Interface
  • ENotification Schemes (Mail, Slack, and Webhooks)
  • ERule Manager for Alert Suppression
  • EWorkflow Action to trigger GET/POST – Requests and Searches

Many Splunk customers also have data in Elastic (or are considering using Elastic, mostly to reduce costs). The problem is that Elastic can require lots of infrastructure, which gets expensive, and the capabilities are not as advanced as Splunk. The ElasticSPL App allows you to leverage gains in using cheaper Elastic software, whilst being able to use Splunk’s feature-rich SPL language and retain the in-house Splunk skills.

ElasticSPL App

Query data stored in Elasticsearch without switching tools

ElasticSPL is an add-on for Splunk that provides a seamless way to query data stored in Elasticsearch without switching between tools.

Customers often run multivendor environments for their log management use-cases. Performing aggregations and correlations between these environments is challenging and frequently requires external tools. For customers using Splunk and Elasticsearch, the ElasticSPL App offers a way to natively query Elasticsearch data from the Splunk UI thereby breaching the inherent silos that exist between these platforms.

By bridging the gap between Splunk and Elasticsearch, ElasticSPL enables Splunk users to tap into the power of Elasticsearch for data exploration and analysis without compromising their familiar SPL expertise.

It streamlines the data analysis process, enhances efficiency and provides a unified experience for managing and analysing data across Splunk and Elasticsearch environments.

Ease of use

ElasticSPL allows Splunk users to utilise familiar SPL commands to query Elasticsearch data. No need to learn a new language or syntax.

Flexible querying

Supports both time-series and aggregated DSL queries, enabling users to extract insights from various types of data.

Powerful interface

Provides a user-friendly interface for exploring and visualising Elasticsearch data directly within the Splunk environment.

Granular access control

Employs Splunk’s capabilities and roles to enforce fine-grained access control to Elasticsearch data, ensuring data security.

Data analytics requires fast-storage to get real-time results, but this is expensive. To meet various regulatory requirements, data needs to be kept for long periods of time, but it is clearly not financially viable to put years of data on expensive storage. Object-storage, like Amazon’s S3, is vastly cheaper, but you cannot easily search it. The S3SPL App allows a Splunk user to search data in S3 object-storage.

S3SPL App

Immediate insight into your data stored in S3 using custom Splunk commands

S3SPL App is a Splunk add-on that provides a seamless way to query data stored in Amazon S3 without switching between tools. It enables Splunk users to leverage their existing SPL knowledge to explore and analyse data in Amazon S3 environments.

Splunk customers who offload ingest data via Cribl or Native Ingest actions to Amazon Storage can often find it a challenge to search or perform analytics on these data sets as they are no longer native to Splunk. S3SPL resolves this problem by providing search time access to these storage locations, providing the best combination of cost management and data availability.

Ease of use

S3SPL App allows Splunk users to utilise familiar SPL commands to query Amazon S3 data. No need to learn a new language or syntax.

Flexible querying

Supports complex SQL-like queries to extract insights from various types of data stored in Amazon S3.

Secure access

Enables secure access to Amazon S3 data using IAM roles and Splunk’s access control capabilities.

Powerful visualisation

Provides a user-friendly interface for exploring and visualising Amazon S3 data directly within the Splunk environment.
