Splunk Announces New Partnership with Microsoft to Boost Digital Resilience

Cloud Computing and Security

Splunk Inc. announced this week a new strategic partnership with Microsoft. The new deal will enable both companies to build Splunk’s enterprise security and observability solutions on Microsoft Azure.

Splunk is a popular platform that enables customers to search, analyze, and visualize machine-generated data in real-time. It collects and processes data coming from a wide variety of data sources like server logs, network devices, security systems, applications, and more. Splunk also provides various visualization tools to create dashboards and reports to enhance data interpretation.

With this partnership, Microsoft will collaborate with Splunk to help customers migrate, modernize, and grow their enterprise environments. It should make it easier for organizations to identify potential security risks to protect customers against cyberattacks.

“Splunk’s strategic partnership with Microsoft to build Splunk natively on Azure demonstrates our commitment to advancing digital resilience and meeting our customers where they are, and how they want to buy. We are excited by the benefits of adding greater flexibility to how our customers deploy Splunk and bring to bear our AI-powered unified security and observability solutions to keep their mission-critical systems secure and reliable,” Splunk explained.

Splunk solutions now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Splunk also announced that the new deal will let customers purchase its solutions through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. These include Splunk Enterprise, Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) as well as Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI).

Splunk says that the aforementioned solutions are currently available in the US, with a global release to follow next month. If you’re interested, you can learn more about the new strategic partnership on Splunk’s official blog post.
