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, 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 Splunk’s operational intelligence into real-time actions to ‘close the loop’ around their strategic incident response.

>rapid response extends Splunk’s Alert Action capabilities, allowing users to easily compose 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 Splunk’s powerful search and analysis capabilities to drill down on issues, determine root causes and orchestrate the most effective response actions for the situation.

“Splunk’s operational intelligence platform 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 both Splunk’s and Optensity’s public sector distributor and knows the Splunk install base well, so we are pleased to team with them to bring this add-on functionality to the market.”

Rebecca Brockschmidt, Director of Splunk Solutions at Carahsoft, adds:  “We are excited to add Optensity’s >rapid response to our Splunk Partner portfolio. This strategic incident response application enhances the value of Splunk’s operational intelligence platform, providing real-time, agile incident response to ensure our government customers’ operations and IT systems are always running efficiently.”
