Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Enterprise
Splunk is our one stop shop for all log data. We send logs from everything from servers, routers, firewalls, switches, sans and applications there to be analyzed and reviewed by different teams. This solves a critical issue by ensuring all teams are working from the same information. Prior to consolidating onto Splunk a number of different sources of truth leading different teams to work with different information.
- Single source of truth for all log files.
- Alerting system based on captured log data.
- Reporting/Dashboard system to present data.
- Complex overall architecture.
- Long implementation time.
- High cost.
- Requires on-going staff time to keep running effectively.
- Reduced time search across different systems for logs.
- Increased efficiency from having all teams using the same system.
- Regulatory complaisance.
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 maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.
