Ceryx Achieves Over 200% Return on Investment With Splunk Software

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that Ceryx Inc. achieved a return on investment (ROI) of more than 200 percent after implementing Splunk Enterprise to analyze machine data from Ceryx’s business IT services.

Ceryx, the leading outsourcer of reliable, secure Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC) solutions, uses Splunk software to trace messages through its popular Email Firewall service, which monitors email flow to identify and protect Ceryx customers from spam and illicit email. With Splunk Enterprise, Ceryx reports that it has reduced the effort for message-tracking workflows eightfold while dramatically improving response times, simplifying compliance reporting and enabling junior staff to accomplish tasks that previously required senior expertise. Ceryx also says that it significantly reduced training time and slashed critical security tasks down to minutes with the automation enabled by Splunk Enterprise.

“Splunk software has been instrumental in helping us control operating costs while still keeping up with growth,” said Derek Mock, director of software development, Ceryx. “Splunk makes compliance and operational reporting not only practical, but almost trivial through new automation.”

“SaaS service providers like Ceryx generate an enormous amount of machine data every second of every day,” said Steve Sommer, chief marketing officer, Splunk. “Inside that data are answers to critical questions Ceryx and its customers need to answer fast. Splunk software provides them a way to zero in on relevant information, automate manual workflows and spot security threats faster than using traditional approaches. As a result, Ceryx, like many other Splunk customers, started experiencing the benefits and achieving ROI almost immediately.”
