Qosmos DeepFlow: Splunk Use Case

By combining DeepFlow and Splunk technologies, cyber threats are discovered more quickly, enabling more effective cyber security. DeepFlow converts network streams into syslog messages that Splunk filters and aggregates. Splunk Enterprise Security App then uses the filtered events to build alerting rules. The addition of DeepFlow records to Splunk’s powerful correlation engine therefore speeds time to discovery of incidents, allowing faster response by security systems.
