uberAgent 6.2 Preview: Splunk Enterprise Security Integration
While we’re finalizing version 6.2 of our user experience monitoring & endpoint security analytics products uberAgent UXM and uberAgent ESA, let’s take a look at a cool new feature: Splunk Enterprise Security integration.
Enterprise Security (ES) is Splunk’s analytics-driven SIEM solution that gives you the ability to quickly detect and respond to internal and external attacks. It improves security operations, offers risk-based alerting, and gives you investigative tools for fast response.
ES works with data sources from many different vendors. This diverse data set needs to be normalized to allow users to search and interact with it in a standardized way. Splunk uses the CIM data model to achieve that.
While uberAgent had CIM support for a long time, we have extended the integration greatly with uberAgent 6.2. If you are used to working with Sysmon data in ES, you will notice no difference when switching to uberAgent. uberAgent supports all CIM fields populated by popular Sysmon add-ons found in Splunkbase, and more!
The following data models and datasets are available with uberAgent 6.2:
- Network Resolution (DNS)
When building an ES integration, the hard part is to map the fields in the data source to the corresponding fields in the CIM data model. The good news: we already did this for you!
To connect uberAgent with Splunk ES, follow these steps:
- Install Splunk ES
- Install uberAgent
- Make sure uberAgent’s UXM and ESA Splunk dashboard apps are installed on the same search heads as ES
That’s it! Everything else works out of the box, including the population of dashboards such as the one in the screenshot at the top of this article.
