Thank you for reaching out; this is a common concern (at least the one about Incident Review page). The good news is that Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) can provide any number of fields within the notable event, but many folks don’t know that it can easily be extended. Let’s walk through how this can be done.

In this step, we’ll focus on taking action on the notable events that have been created thus far. In "A Blueprint for Splunk ITSI Alerting - Overview," I confessed that I believe this design could continue to change over time, and I feel like the concepts addressed in this blog and the next are the most subject to change. I guess what I’m saying is, if you believe you have a better way to achieve the alerting design, I’d love to talk to you about it.

Splunk Stream is great way to monitor network traffic from a host or via a network tap or span port. The software acts as a network traffic "sniffer." The web GUI interface allows you to choose individual metadata fields that are specific to a network protocol and write that metadata to your Splunk indexers for searching.

According to a Gartner report, a Security Operations Center (SOC) provides centralized and consolidated cybersecurity incident prevention, security event monitoring, detection and response capabilities, and supports other business unit requirements.1 Many organizations want to formalize their approach to security with a SOC model, but let’s face it, building and operating a SOC can be expensive and difficult. Yet, there are many strategic reasons organizations do it.

Gaining insights from your data requires more than collecting and analyzing metrics and logs. With the acceleration of customer and business demands, site reliability engineers and IT Ops analysts now require operational visibility into their entire architecture, something that traditional APM tools, dev logging tools, and SRE tools aren’t equipped to provide. Observability enables you to inspect and understand your IT stack; but what is it, and how does it differ from IT monitoring?

Imagine a world where incident alerts arrive 30 minutes before problems even begin — you’d actually have the power to prevent outages and deliver a truly seamless experience to your customers. Sound impossible? Think again — the right AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) solution can help you maintain uptime, reduce manual incident-management tasks and increase productivity.

Most IT organizations have adopted event management as a central practice to help find and fix what’s broken, but today's tools focus on managing the volume of events—they do not deliver service context. Without context, you are ill-equipped to focus on the right problem at the right time. What you need is something different—something that makes IT events less eventful and more insightful—and now, you can finally do it!
