Splunk Review

Valuable features include rapid search, data mining, and information propagation. The GUI should be improved.

What is most valuable?

Rapid search is a valuable feature. Performance and incident response were the top priorities for most MSSPs. Breaches of SLAs will have a negative impact on customer trust, which eventually leads to losing customer confidence on services to which they’re subscribing. Hence, the proactive approaches will be the main differentiator from one MSSP to the others.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our client was considering the other solutions as well. However, due to their overall assessment, they still considered going with it.

Start off with something at a comfortable level, expand gradually, and then move upwards, expanding steadily.
