DevSecOps and log analysis: improving application security

More and more organizations are abandoning the outdated waterfall development methodology for more practical and efficient Agile development practices. As this movement has occurred, development teams are moving faster than ever by employing Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) practices that are serving to shorten development cycles and get new features into production faster. This does, however, come with greater security risk in some respects.


Your Roadmap to Success with Risk-Based Alerting

In our last RBA blog post, we introduced the Splunk RBA journey and how to plan for a successful implementation. In this post, we dive deeper into the four levels of this journey. One of the things I've discovered in working with Splunk customers is that there is a big difference between an initial trial of RBA and using it effectively in a production environment.
