    I think if you manage a large number of mailboxes, you need a reliable solution to protect corporate email from any threat. This solution uses AI to analyze emails to check if they're safe or if it's a risk for the organization. It has a good UI (all in English), and the more you're using it, the more you get. There are a lot of metrics and indicators to help the email security admin.

    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

    Darktrace

    • Monitors your network for unusual behaviour; as it learns what is normal for your network, you don't need to worry too much about things that are normal for your organisation, but might be considered odd in other places, triggering as alarms. It can also detect more subtle changes such as a device accessing a server but at an unusual time.
    • There are a large number of models that are used to create the alerts, which can all be customised, and you can also create your own from scratch, to allow you to tailor it perfectly to your situation.

    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

    Darktrace

    • Really had a poor time of identifying devices and what the device's purpose was - a simple nmap scan did a better job. The problem is they expect you to fine-tune the results - which is exactly what you would expect - but day one it found over 2,000 servers (and I only have 112).
    • Really had a hard time separating network traffic into locations - I use distinct subnets for my buildings, but there was no good way to create a logical map of my traffic internally. Did not garner a sense of trust that it was seeing everything.
    • Sat through a few "analyst" reports - which showed me possible threats in my environment. I am already using a few open source tools, and they actually found more than the analyst reports. Also, there was no way to get the reports on your own - you had to work through their analysts to get the information.

    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.

    Darktrace support is excellent in my experience. They send a competent engineer on-site to provide on-boarding training. They were also very responsive in responding to questions and concerns. Having an individual point of contact who is a competent network and security engineer is not a common experience, at least for me.

    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.

    The Darktrace user interface was improved. Darktrace provides more metrics and more info to decide if an email is malicious or not in doubt case. Darktrace provides a lot of info about the email being analyzed, if there was a previous communication between both parts before for example, it's so easy to deploy.

    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

    Darktrace

    • Darktrace is covering some lack of security issues.
    • Darktrace helps the company to follow some compliance obligations.
    • Darktrace can't solve all issues. It needs to work with other Security tools (e.g Splunk).
    Fabio Silva | 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.
