Netwrix Data Security Platform

Netwrix Auditor is well suited to perform audit data collection on many types of servers that require audit data to be collected. It runs fairly quickly and usually informs you if something went wrong in the data collection. They do need to have better documentation and some form of internal documentation to help the users who understand what is happening in their system to help them through the process of figuring out when something went wrong.

Splunk Enterprise Security

If you have Splunk already, definitely consider ES. The ability to do security alerting around the common information model is very useful. In particular, pulling in threat lists automatically and checking for those indicators across all your data sources is awesome. The ability to have alerts that don't display to the analyst but just update the risk on a user or system is great too. It does provide a view of potential incidents and a platform for investigations but I don't feel like these functions are smooth enough to provide much value.

Pros

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • Netwrix Auditor sends out warnings to users when their passwords are close to expiring. This saves us some headache, because if they have any problems with changing their password, we can help them before they get locked out.
  • The notifications for multiple failed logons is a lifesaver. Very useful for spotting suspicious activity!
  • I love the way that you can create your own custom notifications and reports through the "Search" function. You can pick the "What", "Where", and "When" for the event you want to monitor and set up email email reports for them.

Cons

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • They have a screen capture function that I have never been able to get to work properly. However, I have never called their support on this issue so it is not necessarily a big ding against them. I am only mildly interested in this feature. We have enough network monitoring so I already know what my users are doing I don't need a capture.

Splunk Enterprise Security

  • The application seems inefficient/resource intensive
  • The default searches and alerts are unlikely to provide much value

We have renewed already the licensing of the product minus SQL Server and Oracle Database because the organisation believes the modules are very expensive and have identified a different product for auditing DatabasesOther modules are very important like the User Activity monitor, AD queries that we can not get from the native AD itself or you have to run complicated powershell scripts!Easy to use interfacePre-defined ReportsEasy way to subscribe to important alerts e.g Privilege account group membership changes

The product has user friend pre-defined queries which takes off the stress and horrors of having to query Active Directory with complex Powershell scripts!You can subscribe to certain functions when they are done and you get an alert e.g privileged accounts actions and you don't need to have programming skillsThe product has a desktop version of the software and donot have to login to the server all the time you need to use it.You can see very fast the posture of your environment of the overview screen and deduce what exactly is wrong and what has to be done

Customer support has always been fast and helpful when we run into any issues. The smaller issues are usually resolved within a day or two. It is great support and I feel like I am in good hands anytime an issue comes up. However, we don't run into many issues

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.

Netwrix Data Security Platform

I tried a demo of a competing software, whose name escapes me, and was completely lost. I didn't know how to find anything or how to use it if I did. Their support documentation didn't help very much either. That's why I appreciated the guidance Netwrix provides on usage and value of their product.

Splunk Enterprise Security

We used QRadar a while ago. Perhaps it was just poorly configured but it provided almost no value. It seemed harder to tune for our environment if it was even possible. Also, they didn't value us as a customer. They tried to make us re-purchase the product when they acquired it, even though we already had it in place.

Return on Investment

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • Positive: Greater confidence from management to the engineering team as pro-active monitoring is taking place.
  • Positive: Engineers have a tool that can look into logs across the fleet of servers/network devices.
  • Negative: Can be quite time consuming to set up/ train to be competent in the software.

Splunk Enterprise Security

  • Splunk's threat intelligence is helping keep us free from APTs.
  • Splunk's alerting platform helps us to monitor and stay on top of potential issues.
  • Splunk helps us meet compliance objectives (having a SIEM).
