CloudGuard Dome9

Dome9 can be used to have visibility into cloud assets and security policies across all the virtual networks, regions, and accounts on AWS, Azure and GCP. It also provides continuous enforcement of regulatory compliance standards and security best practices, with the ability to auto-remediate misconfigurations. So Dome9 is well suited for companies using cloud providers that want to take control of their resources.

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

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Minimal false positives if configured properly.

  • Multi platform monitoring.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

  • Allow for separation of control where we don't let some employees have access to production but still can diagnose issues.
  • Common location to go for all logs even if the logs themselves aren't in the same place.
  • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change the code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).

Cons

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Needs to add features for an on-premise cloud.
  • Cost is a little high.

Splunk Enterprise

  • Even though there is a search tool as a help function, you still have to read through many documentation to find the answers you're looking for and sometimes you don't find it. The help function in Splunk could be improved to be more intuitive or have a built-in help per report, panel or dashboard.
  • Creating a Splunk dashboard is rather straightforward however, customization is not. Splunk could be improved to provide more tools or features for customization such as adding colors and font options for text and graphs or graphics.
  • My dashboard has a lot of useful information and I want the important panels and reports at the top but there is no easy way to do this. Perhaps Splunk could be improved to allow features such as adding URL links to other dashboards or some other clever way to emphasize the important data in my dashboard without compromising space.

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.

CloudGuard Dome9

Most products have their pros and cons but Dome9 does everything Evident.io and Redlock can do and more. Evident was a good tool but merging the two products into one complicated things.

Splunk Enterprise

Splunk is proving to be a formidable replacement for Qradar, which we had as our previous SIEM. Qradar was powerful, but not easy to customize and quite limited. Splunk is not per se a "SIEM" but it can be in the way you used it. Also there is an Enterprise Security App that is available to buy and sit on top of Splunk, and that will take care of any concerns with needing a full-fledged SIEM. Splunk wins.

Return on Investment

CloudGuard Dome9

  • For production environments it is worth the investment.
  • Getting to know how many assets you have helps with cost savings.
Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Enterprise

  • I'm not a data analyst so I can not provide concrete examples on how the business has benefited from implementing Splunk. However, the analysts I have worked with have provided a wealth of support in reducing workstation issues across the enterprise. This alone reduces the time it takes to determine where the exact problem lies between a workstation and the servers it tries to communicate with.
