Splunk is a very useful, lightweight and simple tool to analyze logs. As a computer science student who loves coding, it is much more convenient to use. I can build custom queries for myself or a subset of the users. The language is much simpler than SQL and is much faster as well for large amounts of data. It is highly scalable and with a customizable dashboard, it becomes even more useful than LogRhythm which is not that flexible.

We originally used Kiwi Syslog but this was not able to keep up with the level of logs that were being sent to it. Also Kiwi does not allow you to search through logs, create alerts, etc. or any of the other features Splunk has. It is purely just a web GUI for syslog.

Splunk is easier to setup compare to ELK. It has better support, well-documented information plus the Splunk database which has an addon that built by them or the other users to help to improve the experience with Splunk. However, ELK is open-source and it is free. At the end of the day, they are doing similar things. However, with the help of different addons from Splunk database, it saves you more time on configurations by yourself.

We reviewed a number of different platforms and found Splunk to be the more mature product across the board. Splunk is the market leader and the rest of the industry chances them. We needed a platform from a company with the resources to continue development and meet new ever changing regulatory requirements.

Splunk is a better solution for log analyzing based on the complexity of data it can collect, analyze and store. Dynatrace is just in the beginning stage of collecting logs but this tool is good for user application monitoring. So they are different products and it may not be fair to go for an apple to apple comparison. That's why our bank is using both for a strong end to end monitoring solution.

All the logs from those security devices or systems are pumping to the Splunk Enterprise and being correlated by the Enterprise Security. However, there are some difficulties in tuning the Data Model, which results in a lot of false positive. This could occur due to the lack of technical skills our team has. To compensate that we are planning to engage with the Splunk Professional Service to fix the issue.

The Solarwinds SIEM solutions are much more bare-bones and don't offer as many features as Splunk Enterprise. Still, they are also infinitely more affordable and provide precisely what's required for small to medium environments. Implementation is straight forward even for larger environments, and technical support is decent if issues. Overall it comes down to price. For an organization of 100 people, it's hard to recommend Splunk Enterprise when they can use a Solarwinds solution that falls under budget.

Splunk is the most intelligent tool I have ever worked on. It gives you hands-on experience on how logs actually look like. You can go through entire organization data at once using this tool. Also, by the use of data models, it's become so easy to use and work on.

More features and easy to manage once configured and setup correctly. Stronger correlation engine compared to other products. Easily integrates with ServiceNow for ticket creation, automation, and building workflows. Helps in AiOPS more, as compared to other tools. Provides anomaly detection with powerful machine learning capabilities across various metrics.

We are using this because it has lots of advantage over others. And it seems to be a good fit for us. Splunk provides lot more features than others and its UI is user-friendly, so for a new developer, it would not be too difficult to use it and do something around it.

Many products like open source ELK stack tools were evaluated. Splunk stacks up against them well due to its more enterprise-related features. Though the learning curve is a little steeper, according to many, the benefits far outweigh any potential negatives. The ease and small amount of time in which it can be deployed, add some real dollar value.

We have several network and server monitoring tools due to legacy agreements and consolidation of teams over time. We will be eliminating several of these tools because Splunk does so much that they are not all needed. We have also customized Splunk to meet other needs in a effort to have a single platform for monitoring our environment.

  • Sumologic
Both Sumologic and Splunk provides promising solutions to extracting important summaries and actionable insights from log data. But Splunk is more mature, an enterprise-focused product with most value centralized in its on-premise offering.

Our current SIEM device is outdated and no longer can keep up with the functionality we get with Slunk Enterprise. The reporting alone has made this product worthwhile and the customization allows us to tailor make the product for easy consumption. Upper management is happy with the reduced costs while gaining more security features.

We use all of them. Either corporate policy, or simply because every tool has specific strengths, and it also depends very much on how keen the data analysts are in working with a particular platform. In production, where we have lots of M2M logs, Splunk is the preferred system.

Splunk is certainly much more versatile than either of these three products. Unless ArcSight makes a "connector" for your product, you will be required to use Flex Connectors which is an additional license and apparently requires some serious development. Without Logger, you can't perform free form searches so you must know how your data is being normalized before you can find it.
McAfee Nitro uses Flash which presents a number of challenges itself. During our POC, it also misidentified McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise updates as malware traffic.
QRadar neither excelled in any one place and performed poorly during our POC, but it was unable to be as flexible as Splunk with custom data sources.

Loggly, LogLogic, AppSumo. Every one of these products have a scalability problem beyond the terabyte range and gets tremendously expensive in the long run keeping data in the cloud

Both Logstash and Greylog are open-source solutions that provide similar capabilities to Splunk. They are excellent products in their own right but tend to follow versus lead. Splunk is definitely a leader in the field.
