BT Group Plc (BT) is an incumbent phone company providing fixed-line and data services to the United Kingdom. It owns or has stakes in operations in North America, the Asia/Pacific region, and Western Europe. For strategic purposes, BT differentiates its business into two distinct markets: Traditional business lines and New Wave business lines, such as Broadband, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Mobility, and Managed Services. BT Group's strategy is to move customers away from Traditional businesses, where margins are small, and into New Wave businesses, where BT Group can add value and charge higher prices. For reporting purposes, BT Group currently operates through four business segments: BT Retail, BT Wholesale, BT Global Services and OpenReach, which accounted for 28.3%, 24.0%, 30.3%, and 17.3% of its second quarter of 2008 revenues, respectively. BT Retail, BT Wholesale and Openreach operate primarily in the United Kingdom, while BT Global Services operates worldwide. BT serves 170 countries and territories around the globe.

BT Retail is the largest communications service provider by market share to consumers and businesses in the United Kingdom. It supplies a wide range of communication products, including voice, data, Internet, and multimedia services. The BT Wholesale segment provides network services and solutions within the United Kingdom, including its Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) to BT Retail and BT Global Services, as well as to other communication companies, fixed and mobile network operators, and service providers. Openreach was established in January of 2006 in response to OFCOM (UK Office of Communications) strategic review of the communications industry in the UK, and operates the physical assets of the local access and backhaul networks and provides the services which use those networks to communications providers, both internally and externally, and was spun out of BT Wholesale to become a completely independent entity from BT, although it remains wholly-owned by the BT Group. BT Global Services is BT Group's managed services and solutions arm, serving multi-site organizations.


Products

Communications provider BT (BT) licensed a platform to preserve logs for clients. This will augment London-based BT's existing security monitoring and response services for BT Counterpane, allowing customers to collect, index, and maintain all security data from any application, server, or device.

Traditional log management approaches provide limited support for analyzing new and changing data. BT officials say they chose Splunk because it provides flexibility in dynamic environments and for ongoing compliance with IT data retention requirements.

The BT Counterpane log management solution will complement managed security monitoring by enabling a fully-indexed, searchable repository of all log activity from any device on the network; provide customers better visibility and control through rich reports and dashboards; and enable thorough security response with real-time search.

The licensed technology provides large-scale, high-speed indexing and search technology geared toward IT infrastructures. The software, which comes in both free and enterprise versions, allows a company to search and navigate data from any application, server, or network device in real time.

BT operates in 170 countries. Its principal activities include providing local, national and international telecommunications services, higher-value broadband and internet products and services, and converged fixed/mobile products and services. British Telecommunications is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BT.
