We recently implemented it in our organization, mainly for security monitoring and to provide visibility into our cloud infrastructure and various providers. We are bringing in data to better identify anomalies, events of interest, and indicators of compromise.
  • Integration with Okta for IAM-related security events and monitoring.
  • Integration with AWS for CloudTrail and CloudWatch logs
  • Integration with Mimecast for email monitoring and integration
  • Deploying apps require a support ticket and can have a long turnaround time.
  • Making changes to conf files requires a ticket and if it's not through an approved process, then Puppet will reset it to what it was previously
  • Custom apps have to be very well written to make it through the approval process.
If you have a smaller team that can't have a dedicated Splunk admin to manage the indexers, clusters, search heads, etc, Splunk Cloud is good because you have them manage it.

Here at CCMSI, we use Splunk Cloud to monitor Active Directory Events. It is primarily used by the IT Systems Team. It has proven to be invaluable to find misconfiguration, excessive usage, improper procedures, and security events. The tool allows me to give Management the information they ask for in a graphical way that shows trends, spikes, and overall usage.
  • Splunk Cloud allows me to search the volumes of information help in Windows Server Logs quickly and accurately.
  • Splunk Cloud allows me to create Dashboards for everyday monitoring of multiple parameters.
  • Splunk Cloud allows me to create and schedule reports for Management on network usage and statistics.
  • The SPL programming language that the queries are built in is not very intuitive.
  • There should be a better repository of pre-built queries for what I would think of as common Active Directory usage monitoring.
  • I would like to see more free training/familiarization information made available.
I find that Splunk Cloud is well suited for tracking user logins, Server Reboots, failed login attempts, account lockouts, and sorting these items by host or user. We often trace failed user logins to someone having cached credentials on an endpoint which can result in locked accounts that drive the Help Desk ticket volume up unnecessarily.
