BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

Retina Network Security Scanner is well suited for any environment and infrastructure that would like to expose security deficiencies across their network as well as visualize vulnerabilities as they pertain to assets in their environment. I cannot think of any scenario that would not be appropriate for this product. Since the product carries over to pretty much all assets in your environment, I don't know off the top of y head what it wouldn't be appropriate for.

Splunk Enterprise

Pros: Splunk is very well suited if you have multiple log sources of related data. All of them can be correlated and tasks can be automated based on the requirement. Other than alerts, Splunk can also run a specific script of your choice, based on some defined conditions. Cons: If you have a few logs but a large number of log sources, Splunk can be very expensive.

Pros

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • Scanning, network discovery.
  • Does a good job at scanning without taking up network resources.
  • Does not consume a lot of bandwidth.
Peter Paccione | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

  • Real-time + Scheduled alerts - i-e you can set up alerts which are actively monitoring your logs
  • Pretty good response time for search results. With our key/value logging, Splunk makes it blazing fast to query the data.
  • Dashboards provide insights into historical data
  • Love how Splunk indexes all of the data and provides keys to search on

Cons

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • I do not have any obvious cons to report at this time.
Joe Spradlin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

  • At times some queries can run slowly if indices are not on a portion of the query you use.
  • Setup time initially can be difficult if your logs aren't stored in common locations or in a common way to write the log.
  • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).
  • Searches can be a bit more difficult to look through if your log isn't pulled in a manner that is easy to read through splunk.

We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

Splunk maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.

Alternatives Considered

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

I've evaluated Nessus and multiple other products. I'd say Retina is right there with Nessus. At a certain point, it's not about if the product "finds" more vulnerabilities, it's about how easy it is for the end user. All scanners right now find about the same amount of vulnerabilities, but some are harder for users to use. Retina has a pretty well-designed user interface.
Peter Paccione | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

I wanted to learn a new language that I can quickly master and implement. Splunk is easy, fun to use and best of all, it can be developed in hours not days or weeks. Splunk is fundamentally a programming language that is minimal but yet powerful enough to collect, analyze and visualize data.

Return on Investment

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • The product is extremely easy to deploy, extremely positive.
  • If you take full advantage of this product as I did, you will maximize your ROI quickly as we did.
  • We were able to visualize our vulnerabilities efficiently and effectively and maintain scheduled scans that allowed us to maintain a continuous improvement atmosphere while securing our investments.
  • The ability provide reporting allows our IT department to prioritize issues and remediate as required without chasing down low risk issues over high risk issues that need immediate attention.
Joe Spradlin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

  • Overall very positive. It has provided visibility to what is going on within our network.
  • One drawback is the time it takes to get up to speed with the application, but this is up to the user, and Splunk education is excellent.
  • In my field, IT Security, there are few other friends to have in your back pocket better than Splunk. They are just that good.
