Splunk’s Kevin Davis: Modern Threat Landscape Calls for Analytics-Based Adaptive Response Strategy

Kevin Davis

Kevin Davis, vice president for public sector at Splunk (Nasdaq: SPLK), has said government agencies should implement an adaptive response strategy to immediately address evolving cyber threats, automate their security processes and equip multi-layered security platforms with a defensive strategy.

Davis wrote that the key to the implementation of such a strategy is data analytics combined with machine learning algorithms and automation.

“Data analytics improves fidelity so analysts need to focus only on the critical alerts and reduces analyst fatigue because the manual tedium is eliminated,” he noted.

He called on agencies to mandate the use of adaptive response platforms during the acquisition process to ensure that contractors comply with best practices as well as select industry partners that adopt agile methods to security platforms development.

“An agile approach to the development of security tools ensures that new applications will run efficiently, resources are optimally consumed and the tools keep up with the dynamic landscape,” Davis added.
