Agency Meets Audit/Information Security Needs
Ironstream and Splunk Help Federal Law Enforcement
In order to fulfill the frequently changing information-security obligations set by its auditors, a federal law-enforcement agency faced the looming task of collecting and analyzing operational log data from many of its IT systems, including the entirety of its history and current enterprise security information. Although the company had already utilized Splunk Enterprise® as its log management analytics platform, it was still missing the extremely sensitive log data of its mainframe systems.
After a close analysis of the agency’s needs, Ironstream proved to offer the best overall solution. Created specifically for the purpose of collecting, transforming and forwarding log data of this magnitude to the Splunk® platform, Ironstream granted this law-enforcement agency the ability to obtain full visibility—in real time—into the most sensitive authentication procedures and data across its IT environment, ultimately enabling it to fulfill its audit obligations with ease.
