Top Executive: CEO Gary Steele
Calling its core product “the data platform for the hybrid world,” Splunk develops its system for collecting, indexing and searching machine data, putting it at the center of a wide range of big data operations and initiatives that span such areas as IT observability, unified security and a broad range of custom applications.
Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud Platform incorporate such capabilities as data streaming, machine learning, search and visualization, and data collaboration and orchestration. On top of those platforms Splunk provides offerings for specific functions including Splunk Enterprise Security, Splunk SOAR, Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring and Splunk Application Performance Monitoring.
In March Splunk, based in San Francisco, hired Proofpoint founder and CEO Gary Steele as its new CEO.
