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.

Read full review Pros Effective correlation of IOCs Averaging out the Confidence Score based on different intel sources. Serves as an excellent liaison points between the Intels and SIEM/SOAR stack. Read full review Writes Powerful Queries: The queries that can be written using the Splunk Query Language are very powerful and highly customizable to meet every need. Ex: Writing queries to search the intersection of two different sources like Network and Endpoint Logs. Offers Dashboard Abilities: Helps build complex panels for Dashboards in addition to providing several out-of-the-box panels. Ex: creating panels to calculate the performance of analysts in a given timezone. Helpful Search Aids: It helps to set up complex custom alerts very easily. The interesting fields section is very helpful while threat hunting. Ex: It shows all the users and the frequency of each in a failed login event. The user list on the interesting fields is useful to look for suspicious logins. Read full review Cons Misses on a global search bar which can directly gives out the result like VirusTotal. The GUI could be more friendlier. Too many filters and graphs may overwhlem the user sometimes. The ElasticSearch(searching for IOC in the in-house EIQ database) is a little slow compared to its counterparts. Read full review Improved User Interface Customization: While the interface is generally intuitive, providing more options for users to customize their dashboards and views would enhance the overall user experience. Tailoring the interface to specific roles or use cases could be a valuable addition. Simplified Alert Management: Streamlining the process of managing alerts, such as grouping or categorizing them based on severity or type, would make it easier for security teams to prioritize and respond to incidents effectively. Expanded Threat Intelligence Feeds: Increasing the variety and sources of threat intelligence feeds available within ES would provide a broader context for identifying and mitigating emerging threats, ensuring a more comprehensive defense against evolving attack vectors.

We are very happy with Splunk and would advise anyone to take a serious look at it. It might look pricey but the rewards Splunk offers seem endless.

You definitely need to learn how to use Splunk to get the most of the tool. There are many courses available for free to get up to speed on the usability of the tool but it's not that simple. It will take time to digest all the data and to understand how to query for what you are looking for.

I'm not an ES user, but, in my implementation I usually try to prevent all service stops to guarantee High availability to the final customers.

ES requires a very performant infrastructure: if it has it's performant, otherwise not. I had situation with a very performant infrastructure and I didn't notized that it was a distributed architecture, it seemed that there ware few data on my PC, othewise I experienced less performant infrastructures with less performaces.

It's good when it's responsive, but I've had times where I had to wait quite a while for a response. But these are typically the exceptions rather than the rule. When you do get a response it is always well-informed and appropriate. I would say they've been trending better over time with this.

I experienced only on-line training, but the trainers were very professional and competent. Maybe it could be more useful if they also have an experience in projects because sometimes they didn't have a real project experience to communicate to the students. Anyway, it was very interesting and I learned many thing that's very difficoult (or maybe impossible!) to have by myself, aven if I have more than 10 years of Splunk activity experience.

It was very interesting and I learned many thing that's very difficoult (or maybe impossible!) to have by myself. The only problem was that, when I worked with the Splunk Professional Services, I found some difference between the training contents and the information from PS. In addition is required a long experience on
for the data ingestion part, in other words I'm able to work with ES because I'm worling on Splunk since 11 years, otherwise I'd some problem.

It's a fantatic product and it was very useful the presence of Splunk Professional Services for the Design Phase and the final Health Check.

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.

Splunk enterprise is the only solution that we’ve been able to identify that provides risk based alerting, which allows our SOC to reduce analyst fatigue which would be a huge problem without it. Before RBA, there were thousands of alerts a day and it was impossible to review all of them
Read full review Contract Terms and Pricing Model
for my exterience, unit pricing and billing frequency are correct. As I already said, I hint to have more discount flexibility, expecially with new customers, because there are competitors less expensive and very aggressive that are dangerous. In addition the possibility to don't pay the license for the development period could be a very interesting feature for the final customers.

- 8 out of 10 and took 2 for the data pipeline and administration part. Even if you'd like to improve yourself or your team, you have to pay a lot of money and it could be more than GIAC education + cert. - Normalization for Data models and CPU-based searches can be a problem sometimes.

I had a fantastic experience with Splunk Professional Services: they worked with us in our last SON project (a SOC migration for a very large customer) and helped to build a multi tenent environment even if ES isn't a multi tenant platform. Th Splunk PS was a very professional and competent people, he is italian and was able to speak with our italian customers.
Read full review Return on Investment Positive: Effective usage of all the premium Intels in a uniform fashion. No need to log in to each tool time and again. Positive: SOC Analysts spends lesser time on the internet and the analysis for the IOCs with graphical format is fulfilled by EclecticIQ. Negative: Higher costs over the resource utilization in the initial setup. Read full review We have a 100% success rate on all our ES implementations due to the amazing documentation and Splunk enablement on the subject. Our Splunk ES business has grown 100% YoY for the last 3 years. In terms of long term management and maintenance, ES has been highly stable and predictable, reducing our overhead on costly services team for ad hoc maintenance work. Read full review ScreenShots
