Splunk Review

Easily tracks problems and their status

What is our primary use case?

We use Splunk for both monitoring and SIEM. Our security operations group uses Splunk to track user accounts which may have been compromised as well as follow those accounts through the organization.

How has it helped my organization?

Splunk has give us the capability to easily track problems and their status. Our security operations team has been able to use it to track where people login and what they do on those machines.

What is most valuable?

Personally, I like the capability of removing sensitive data before it goes into Splunk. I also like the ease with which dashboards can be created.

What needs improvement?

I like Splunk. The only thing which can be improved is that they are too subjective on whom their Splunk4Good initiative can be applied. They market it as you only need to be a nonprofit, but there is more to it.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
