Get the Right Data When You Need It – Fast – with the Lansweeper Add-on for Splunk SIEM

According to IBM, the average total cost of a data breach reached $4.24 million in 2021, the highest in 17 years.  From stolen credentials to phishing attacks, social engineering and more, scammers and cybercriminals are taking advantage of a shortage of cybersecurity professionals, overtaxed security teams, and the increased number of vulnerabilities introduced by hybrid work environments. 

To combat the rise in cybercrime, 82% of organizations are beefing up their cybersecurity budgets, and today, those funds account for up to 15% of total IT spending. Maximizing the value of new cybersecurity investments will be critical to reducing risk and optimizing costs. 

However, despite the ability of Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) solutions to alert teams to potential threats, many of the processes related to investigating and resolving security issues remain largely manual. The time and resources spent on these tasks drive up operational overhead and, worse yet, can impair a security teams' ability to protect their organization. Manual processes are prone to error, and while IT staff is frantically hunting down the information they need to address the threat, an attack could be spreading rapidly, infecting multiple devices.

Security teams need fast access to the right data the moment they receive an alert, so they can jump into action without delay. That's why Lansweeper has partnered with multiple SIEM/SOAR providers to create seamless integrations that provide instant access to Lansweeper data  - like the one developed with Splunk.

Enrich alerts and provide contextual data for incidents and threats.

Effective Incident Response Requires Data and Context

Splunk ES is a market-leading SIEM solution that enables organizations to combat security threats with actionable intelligence and advanced analytics at scale. The solution ingests IT asset data from multi-cloud and on-premises deployments, providing full visibility to quickly detect malicious threats in an IT environment. 

With Splunk ES, the ability to correlate activities across multiple cloud and on-prem infrastructure installations in a single pane of glass streamlines investigations and accelerates response. Teams can identify, prioritize and manage security events with event sequencing, alert management, risk scores, and customizable dashboards and visualizations. Risk-based alerting capabilities enable teams to prioritize their work and spend more time on high-value tasks instead of analyzing events.

But even with access to intuitive dashboards and analytics, contextual data is required for alerts to be useful - information such as what devices are affected by a potential threat, device location data, user information, and more. If teams have to hunt down information to enrich alerts, the response is delayed, putting the organization at risk. 

A better way is to have detailed IT asset data flow seamlessly into your SIEM and eliminate the need to track down that data from disparate, typically siloed sources. One caveat - that information has to be complete, accurate, and granular to move the needle in terms of mean time to repair (MTTR) That's why Splunk has partnered with Lansweeper to create the Lansweeper Add-on for Splunk - an integration that enables Lansweeper data to flow seamlessly into Splunk SIEM, enriching alerts and providing contextual data for incidents and threats.

Alert Enrichment Simplified

Lansweeper's integration with Splunk ES enables IT security teams to benefit from immediate access to all the data they need to pinpoint a security threat, identify devices and users that are impacted, and make data-driven decisions about how to proceed. 

Lansweeper automatically and continuously discovers IT assets across the IT infrastructure - servers, laptops, desktops, virtual machines, operating systems, software, and other assets deployed on your network - to create an always-accurate, up-to-date IT asset inventory with detailed and granular IT asset data. Splunk SIEM users that leverage the Lansweeper Add-on for Splunk can access Lansweeper data instantly, right within Splunk SIEM - without having to chase down the information via phone calls, emails, or IMs. They simply query Lansweeper using the IP or Mac address associated with the device in question, and the alert is quickly and automatically enriched with contextual data, accelerating incident response.

The Splunk/Lansweeper integration helps SoC teams optimize operations and respond to threats much faster, with confidence and efficiency. Less time spent investigating security incidents means less risk, less frustration, and more time to work on solving problems. Watch our on-demand webinar: 'Supercharge Splunk Enterprise with Lansweeper' for a deep dive and to see this solution and action. Lansweeper's integration with Splunk ES is just one of the many ways the Lansweeper platform fits seamlessly into your existing technology stack. Learn more about our available integrations here.
