What is Splunk?

Splunk is a centralized tool which has the ability to collect real time logs from various devices such as network device, security devices, service applications as well as from any device any machine will generate the data. So we can say that Splunk can receive the logs events from all those machines which generate the data, and it enables you searching and reporting.

So this is what we achieve from the Splunk. So Splunk in cybersecurity is a broadly you're classified, and we can use Splunk for main three purposes.
