One of the key concerns cited during initial discussions with organisations, regarding their big data strategy, is the secure storage and retrieval of IT and business data. We ensure that significant time and effort is allocated to addressing these reservations, and clarifying any false assumptions that organisations may have regarding Big Data Analytics deployments.


Some typical concerns expressed are:

We don’t want data to leave the organisation or be accessible outside the internal network

Splunk Enterprise is an on-site or cloud based dedicated set up. All the data can be stored within the secure network of the organisation and cannot be accessed from a public network.




We have some data on our private cloud which we want to analyze along with on premise infrastructure, but don’t want to use another cloud service to do this

Data from your hybrid infrastructure can be indexed in Splunk, either on premise or on your private cloud. There is no compulsion to avail of Splunk Cloud for your cloud deployment.




We have customer data that is highly sensitive, across global data centers. We want to centralize our global analytics without this data physically leaving the respective data centers

We can architect this with multi-site clustering, so that each data center retains its data physically, and only provides centralized access to the view of this data. In other words, a correlation / search can be run across data that lies across different physical locations]



We need to use our own security certificate for this deployment instead of the standard security certificate

While Splunk comes with it’s own self signed SSL Certificate, this can be replaced by your organization’s 3rd party SSL certificate.





We need to configure account policies specific to requirements from our LDAP / AD

Splunk enables you to leverage industry best practices such as enforcing unique user names, password length requirements, forced password resets, Role Based Access Control and/or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)/Active Directory (AD) support]




We want to use a cloud service for our Big Data Analytics deployment, but we need to ensure our data is transferred and stored securely

Splunk Cloud uses AWS across 7 global sites, providing a highly secure environment and 100% uptime SLA. All AWS data centers have attached SOC 2 Type 2, PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Level 1, ISO 27001, Cloud Security Alliance, DIACAP, and FISMA certifications / attestations]


Eventually, after taking into consideration such concerns, we ensure that our deployment strategy includes a compliance plan to meet the security checklist defined by the organisation. This is imperative to the success of an Enterprise Big Data Analytics implementation.
