What do you get when you combine the full power of the network with market-leading security and observability solutions? More customer value and an amazing partner ecosystem.

It’s official! Today, with the closing of the acquisition, Splunk became part of Cisco. We’re looking forward to this exciting new chapter of our journey together – and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Delivering Greater Customer Value Together

In today’s digital world, organizations need to connect the people, places, apps, data, and devices that power their business, while protecting their entire digital footprint from cybersecurity threats, downtime, and other business risks. Together, we’re revolutionizing the way our customers leverage data to connect and protect every aspect of their organizations – and we’ll be doing it with our incredible partners.

How? Through:

  • Better Security. A highly comprehensive security solution for threat prevention, detection, investigation, and response for organizations of any size, utilizing cloud, network, and endpoint traffic for unparalleled visibility.
  • Better Observability. A highly comprehensive full-stack observability solution for delivering amazing digital experiences across a multi-cloud hybrid environment.
  • Better Networking. A leading secure networking solution delivered on intelligent, resilient, and continually optimized network infrastructure.
  • Better AI. Cisco’s networking portfolio – combined with enhanced security, full-stack observability, and a comprehensive data platform – empowers customers to securely harness the power of AI throughout their organizations and applications.
  • Better Economics. Cisco and Splunk’s platform approach will help our customers consolidate numerous point products—delivering better business outcomes and reducing costs.

Delivering Greater Partner Value

Whether you’re a Splunk partner or Cisco partner or both, you may be wondering what this means for you and your organization.

  • Splunk partners now form an essential part of Cisco’s global partner ecosystem.
  • We believe partners across this unified ecosystem can benefit from the innovation, differentiation, and opportunity for profitable growth resulting from our companies – and partner communities – coming together.
  • Collectively, we have an opportunity to deliver unique experiences and high-value services for our customers by working together in new ways.

For now, it’s business as usual. As our partners’ success is our top priority, we’re balancing the need to quickly bring the benefits of our combined capabilities to our partners while ensuring a great experience. We’ll be sharing more information in the coming months as we bring our organizations together.

Meanwhile, we invite you to join us April 4 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time for an Executive Roundtable on the Future of Cisco and Splunk livestreamed on Cisco.com. Learn more about our joint vision, and register for the Roundtable.

Thank you for your continued partnership, and we look forward to this exciting new chapter in our journey together.
