"The security tools and advanced machine learning algorithms included
with Splunk Enterprise automate the analysis of our cloud security logs,
instantly alerting security administrators of potential risks," said
Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems'
Intelligence Solutions business. "This is a core part of our federated
secure cloud strategy – leveraging the best security technologies on the
market to give network administrators an unparalleled level of awareness
and security control."

The federated
secure cloud
arrives embedded with multiple network-monitoring
capabilities to provide administrators a greater understanding of their
users, data, infrastructure, and tools.

"Cybersecurity threats are one of the biggest risks to federal agencies
today, and analysts need to make decisions faster than ever before to
safeguard the country and citizens," said Gary DePreta, area vice
president, Defense, Intelligence and Aerospace, Splunk. "By embedding
Splunk Enterprise within the federated secure cloud, analysts are able
to utilize machine learning to detect and respond to threats faster,
make more informed decisions, and focus on proactive security
strategies."

The federated secure cloud has the flexibility to operate seamlessly on
any Microsoft Azure, AWS or on-premise cloud system, yet can be
customized to support any government organization transitioning to a
secure hybrid cloud environment – to include smaller forward-operating
units.

BAE Systems delivers a broad range of solutions and services enabling
militaries and governments to successfully carryout their missions. The
company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and
sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains.
