Check Point Quantum Smart-1

Check Point Security Management provides solutions for Small businesses to an enterprise to service providers and these are all basically the same user interface.

I find that Splunk Cloud is well suited for tracking user logins, Server Reboots, failed login attempts, account lockouts, and sorting these items by host or user. We often trace failed user logins to someone having cached credentials on an endpoint which can result in locked accounts that drive the Help Desk ticket volume up unnecessarily.

Cons

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Not many
  • Expensive though comparatively lately these devices have stayed fairly consistent while other vendors have increased greatly and are catching up.
  • Support is limited, though this can be an advantage because of the security.

Splunk Cloud

  • The query language is well-documented but has a bit of a learning curve.
  • I wish copy/pasting JSON from the logs were easier without going to the completely raw (condensed) form.

Overall, it is very usable. I would like if recent searches were saved for longer because I always have to refer to my notes when I'm looking for something specific and it's been a few weeks. But that's a small issue, and the actual search and browsing interface is easy to use and powerful.

There is plenty of community-driven support, which is always a very good thing to have. Getting support from your peers worldwide means answers can be very quick, even quicker than official support channels.

Far exceeds any testing we were able to think of when testing.

All the products in this category do log aggregation very well, however the winning factor was that we have experience with Splunk already and this has proved invaluable as Splunk has a steep learning curve. Especially the Splunk administration part of the tool as that is a very complex area if you wish to get into it.

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Hardware is very solid so time for maintenance is extremely limited.
  • Patching is limited due to the strength of the code releases also time for maintenance is extremely limited
  • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive

Splunk Cloud

  • Reduced the amount of time needed from internal security resources (freed up at least 3 FTEs).
  • Reduced the cost per daily GB ingests of our SIEM by 33%.
  • Allowed us to migrate to a lower cost SOC model.
