Machine data solutions firm Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK) announced Tuesday that it has agreed to acquire TruSTAR, a San Francisco-based company that provides a threat intelligence platform designed to integrate various threat data sources and improve detection and response times.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2014, TruSTAR’s platform collects and enriches internal and external data sources to automate the dissemination of intelligence to various tools and teams.

Splunk says the acquisition will help extend its security analytics capabilities and give customers the ability to drive highly effective detection and respond to threats faster.

“In today’s data age, integrated and automated intelligence is critical to accelerate detection, streamline response and increase cyber resilience. TruSTAR’s cloud-native solution centralizes threat data from a wide array of sources so it can be seamlessly integrated into Security Analytics and SOAR workflows to provide more autonomous, higher efficacy security operations,” said Sendur Sellakumar, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Chief Product Officer, Splunk. 

Splunk says that TruSTAR customers will be able to utilize community and freemium feeds from several of Splunk's commercial threat intelligence integration partners including Intel471, Recorded Future and Mandiant.
