“Lindora is a powerful brand, in the right space, at the right time and I’m excited to join the team at this transformational growth stage,” Righeimer said.

Powered by a growing list of leading cybersecurity technology vendors, Adaptive Response is a best-of-breed security initiative that leverages end-to-end context and continuous response to improve security operations with an adaptive security architecture. The announcement was made at the 2017 RSA Security Conference. " data-reactid="5" style="color:#26282a;font-family:'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:15px;" type="text">IRVINE, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Resolve Systems, Inc., a global, enterprise Security & IT incident response automation platform, and Splunk Inc., provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that Resolve Systems has joined the Splunk® Adaptive Response Initiative. Powered by a growing list of leading cybersecurity technology vendors, Adaptive Response is a best-of-breed security initiative that leverages end-to-end context and continuous response to improve security operations with an adaptive security architecture. The announcement was made at the 2017 RSA Security Conference.
Following its unveiling at the 2016 RSA Security Conference, the Adaptive Response Initiative now includes over 20 participating vendors as members. With this extensive network, organizations can use Splunk Adaptive Response to further interact with data, extract and share new insights, gain more context and invoke actions across key security and IT domains. Ultimately, this allows customers to detect threats faster, make analytics-driven decisions and improve operational efficiencies within their Security Operations Center (SOC).
"Resolve's Security Incident Response platform is a powerful solution that directly complements Splunk to greatly increase agent productivity and accelerate the resolution of security related incidents," said Larry Lien, Vice-President of Product Management at Resolve. "By combining Splunk's centrally positioned analytics-driven security platform with Resolve's Incident Response Automation platform, we are thrilled to help security professionals around the world gather more context to detect threats quicker, execute guided processes more efficiently and deliver a more automated and continuous response against advanced attackers."
While many organizations employ a layered, multi-vendor approach to security, most individual solutions are not designed to work together outside of the box. Splunk Enterprise Security (Splunk ES), working in conjunction with technologies like Resolve's incident response automation platform, extends analytics-driven decision-making and improves detection, investigation and remediation times by centrally automating retrieval, sharing and response.
"We created the Adaptive Response Initiative so organizations could efficiently combat advanced attacks while utilizing their existing security architectures. Members like Resolve Systems are key to the success of Adaptive Response," said Haiyan Song, senior vice president of security markets, Splunk. "Together we will solve this very challenging problem facing every enterprise."
