EclecticIQ
ElecticIQ has an architecture where it usually needs decent computing power within the organisation. The central console along with the ELK servers and PostgreSQL sever needs their own space in a distributed setup. This could be a little too expensive for small-scale organisations. But for the organizations having mid to large-scale networks. EIQ is a decent solution to serve the purpose.

EclecticIQ
The most important feature of EclecticIQ which gives it an edge compared to other TIPs is that it performs segregation of IOCs based on the relevance of it and the links that IOCs might have which other adversaries. The graphical format mapping where the user can easily figure out how the IOCs have connections to different binaries is another advantage. One can set the half-life time for an IOC which will reduce the confidence score as per one's need.
