The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow at an unbelievable rate, and creates tremendous benefits and opportunities for society. With it grows the demand for products and services that control, manage, and protect the massive amounts of data streaming from all those network-connected devices.
Update Q3’2019: Subsequent to the development of the IRI Voracity Add-On for Splunk described below, there is now also a Splunkbase-registered IRI Voracity App for Splunk available for Seamless Data Preparation, Indexing, and Visualization…
After our first examples of external unstructured data preparation and PII data masking for Splunk generated interest in these capabilities, IRI wanted to develop a direct integration from the Splunk user interface (UI).
Introduction: This example demonstrates an older method of using IRI FieldShield to protect sensitive data prior to indexing the data in Splunk. As you will read, FieldShield would process the data outside of Splunk and create a CSV file for Splunk’s ingestion.
According to Trent Henry of the Burton Group,
Data protection needs to take into account both internal and external threats, including those against critical database and application resources.
