Optensity’s >rapid response for Splunk Now Available on Carahsoft GSA Schedule

Splunk App Provides Government Users with Agile Response and Recovery Measures to
Resolve Infrastructure and System Issues

MCLEAN, Va. and RESTON, Va., April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Optensity, developer of AppSymphony, an award-winning app composition platform, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solution provider, today announced that Optensity’s new product, >rapid response for Splunk® Enterprise, is now available on Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule 70.

Government agencies need to be able to respond to infrastructure and cyber operations incidents immediately, determine the full scope of the situation, and take the best possible actions to restore mission operations. Optensity’s >rapid response for Splunk app allows users to turn the Operational Intelligence platform from Splunk into real-time actions to ‘close the loop’ around their strategic incident response.

>rapid response extends the Splunk alert action capabilities, allowing users to easily compose and automate powerful custom alert actions that orchestrate system-wide incident response strategies. No coding or scripting needed! >rapid response goes even further to support dynamic strategies that leverage powerful search and analysis capabilities from Splunk to drill down on issues, determine root causes and orchestrate the most effective response actions for the situation.

“The Operational Intelligence platform from Splunk already provides users with actionable, operational intelligence. We developed >rapid response to enable Splunk users to quickly automate critical incident responses, ranging from simple automatic recovery actions to complex multi-phased person-in-the-loop remediation strategies across the enterprise,” said Frank White, CTO, Optensity. “Carahsoft serves as a public sector distributor for both Splunk and Optensity, and knows the Splunk install base well, so we are pleased to team with Carahsoft to bring this add-on functionality to the market.”

This strategic incident response application enhances a customer’s investment in Splunk by providing real-time, agile incident response to ensure our government customers’ operations and IT systems are always running efficiently.”
