Splunk
Splunk RUM was really helpful in identifying brute force attacks as we used Splunk query language and were able to identify how many failed login attempts were made from which country and blacklisted those IP's. Since Splunk entirely depends on Splunk query language, if there are no logs or you delete the logs you can't perform analysis, as there is no stream of live data and also it depends on how frequently your data can be indexed.

It's a best tool/product in the market and easy to use. It serves our purpose and saves a lot time of the resource from the manual task. The main and most important is, its support team. One of the best support team I have ever seen. Their dedicated product engineer have a good knowledge over the product and helps immediately.

Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM) has a much better artificial intelligence engine. It also has a much better and more intuitive user interface. Splunk RUM also allows end-to-end visibility into the front and the backend. Technical support and customer service are also much better than Goliath. Query performance is faster than Goliath.
