With an ever-expanding cyber attack surface, organizations today are struggling to keep a finger on the pulse of their threat landscapes. Combine this with the economic pressures facing every business, and security and IT leaders are struggling to allocate their teams’ precious time and resources to adequately address the multitude of incidents battering their inboxes daily.
Traditional security tools help keep threats at bay — but these tools are acting in silos, speaking different languages, and are unable to provide a holistic view of an organization's risk. This presents an onslaught of challenges when trying to secure the attack surface. A short-list of these challenges includes prioritizing incidents, adhering to security policies, and identifying current threat actors and security coverage gaps.
To address the above challenges, an organization must have a clear view of their network environments, and, with the help of Axonius, they can do just that.
Axonius connects via simple API connections to the tools organizations already use, collecting source data about assets and asset-related information. Axonius then correlates that data to gain a comprehensive analysis of the environment, and presents a unified view of the entire attack surface. Devices, users, SaaS applications, and cloud workloads are uniformly presented with deeper context, and, when combined with the power of Splunk, gives organizations a clear and actionable picture of every asset within their network.
With the Axonius TA for Splunk, Splunk customers can leverage the power of Axonius to correlate data across their existing security tools within their Splunk console. Axonius enriches the existing data known to Splunk with greater context, in addition to discovering assets that were previously unaccounted for.
To enable the Axonius TA for Splunk, download the add-on and simply call the Axonius REST API to begin. Organizations can then utilize saved queries to:
- Drill deeper into specific asset data
- Build new queries to draw asset information from Axonius and other connected sources
- Automate and customize how often that data is refreshed
- Define dynamic field mapping
Once installed, you can reference the Axonius Community for configuration and best practices using the Axonius Splunk Add-On.
The best part: IT and security teams will save both time and resources and improve their ability to manage the cyber attack surface.
Together, Axonius and Splunk provide deeper intelligence into an organization's attack surface by limiting data noise distracting teams from managing the larger threats compromising their environments.
