Exabeam

As a SIEM tool for investigations, Exabeam is the best in class. The AI assigns numeric values to observed logs them presents high scores to the analyst in a simple dashboard. We can see what is a real threat and ignore so many false positives. Exabeam is the best SIEM was used from an alert fatigue perspective. The simple interface allows other teams not just InfoSec to utilize the tool; helpdesk for asset diagnoses, HR for staffing questions, etc.

Splunk

Splunk Enterprise Security will be more suited in research dense areas, and also have a good scope in defense-related projects, cyber specialists, etc. It is less recommended for normal companies where the hosted application data do not require high-security environments. Also, this requires special admins to configure and monitor the logs effectively.

Pros

Exabeam

  • Fast search times, unlike other competing solutions.
  • The ability for engineers to obtain access to the command line interface for troubleshooting, at least for on-premise deployments.
  • License is suitable for organisations with lots of logs to ingest.
  • Hardware required for on premise deployments is well supported.

Splunk

  • Its best feature is its user interface, which is easy to navigate and understand. All you need is a little tutorial on how to use the Splunk query language and you're done.
  • Logs can be easily uploaded or shared across multiple platforms and display a highly insightful graphical representations of data using graphs, tables, and many other formats.

Cons

Exabeam

  • More and better drop-down menus, some items in threat hunter require you know subsets.
  • Less dashboards, combine AA and DL without having separate logins.
  • More complete playbooks are already built out. You have the structure set up for templates like malware and phishing, go further and completely build them out from start to finish, most companies would just use them and not personalize their configurations.
  • Quarterly health checkup diagnostics of systems sent out to users.

Splunk

  • ES on the cloud (SaaS) has too many limitations with platform administration.
  • Supported integrations are not always on par with enterprise support especially when dependent on 3rd-party proprietary APIs.
  • In later versions, unforeseen glitches seem to show up that have no resolution except version upgrade. This used to not be the case in prior versions which were very stable.

      Usability

      Exabeam

      Out of the box, the system works. Its graphical user interface is straightforward and uncomplicated. Exabeam's SIEM was built from the ground up with ease of use in mind. They made it so that no special training is required because it uses simple text searches.

      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.

      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.

      The engineers working to support Exabeam are very professional and competent. They always arrive prepared for troubleshooting meetings and provide helpful input to resolve most issues without requiring excessive escalation whenever possible. Their support team is good at promptly providing parsers that can be used to enhance the product's functionality and ensure fields are all populated.

      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 Splunk Enterprise 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.

      Splunk

      - Schema on the fly indexing --> Gives you faster index searches. Even if you use Datamodes, it's 100x time faster as well. - Correlation with other domains easily gives you total visibility and reduces the time to investigate and understand the problem. - With lookups and trust, you can easily ingest your TI platforms and look for backlog and real-time data. - Splunkbase - RBA is using unsupervised learning also, so it's not like Qradar or McAfee. If we look at Qradar or McAfee, they are giving some magnitude values with static rules and define incident levels with that. - Advanced investigation option and out-of-box security metrics tell you that where you are.

      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.

      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.

      Return on Investment

      Exabeam

      • As soon as a threat is detected, Exabeam Fusion will take action to remove it from all mailboxes affected.
      • The capacities of the work group are maximized with the days.
      • Percentage of costs have increased 10% but we project a decrease in this.

      • ES has highly impacted ROI because as the customer of the ES the work we do for creating use cases for clients in terms of security-related aspects by their logs has given more return than investment.
      • The correlation searches we run to get detailed results from the Data models are very less time-consuming than Splunk Enterprise itself we can get quick responses to the use cases and dashboards populated because of ES.
      • The CIM compliance feature is ES has made more jobs easy in the terms of finding more Authentication related data we can get data onboarded in the Email data model from O365 and search is email data model instead of searching for particular indexes.
