Splunk is a security and observability tool used to provide visibility on large amounts of data for multi-cloud and on-premise deployments. The solution delivers insights on critical metrics such as uptime, anomalies, outages, suspicious activity, and more. With these cloud observability insights, Splunk can detect malicious activity and notify IT, DevOps, and SRE teams when a data security event occurs.
Bitwarden and Splunk integrate together to provide security information and event management (SIEM) for defense against malicious attacks and network breaches. SIEM technology identifies potential threats to online applications, while also providing compliance and security management for cloud infrastructure data in near real-time. This is achieved by logging a collection of detailed events that occur across various data sources.
With Bitwarden and Splunk, detailed information on activity across password management activity can be gathered and displayed in visual dashboards for easy monitoring. Together, the two integrate to provide valuable insights into a given Bitwarden organization, including information such as user activity, password changes, shared passwords, and more. Combined with monitoring of other infrastructure, apps, and networking, Splunk Enterprise provides a holistic view of company security.

Did you know?
Bitwarden records more than 50 types of events that are logged in perpetuity and can be passed to Splunk for analysis and integration into existing security systems.
Bitwarden integrates easily into Splunk Enterprise on-premises installations through the official Bitwarden Event Logs Splunkbase app. Follow the steps in the Splunk SIEM integration documentation from the Bitwarden Help Center. Once your Bitwarden organization is connected to Splunk, three pre-built dashboards will populate: Authentication Events, Vault Item Events, and Organization Events. Other custom dashboards can be built to make use of this data.
Alternatively, use Bitwarden API integration to set up SIEM functionality by exporting event data from your organization. The Public API can provide information about your organization and users. The Vault Management API provides access to information about encrypted data and is hosted within the Bitwarden CLI client using the
serve command on an owned endpoint. Combined, these two APIs will provide a full view of your organization and vault.
