This intelligent user behavior analytics package is easy to configure and use while remaining feature filled.The solution is definitely scalable.The most valuable features are the indexing and powerful search features.The solution is extremely scalable.

Cons
The pricing is very expensive. They should make their equipment more affordable.Overall, it lacks user-friendliness. It could be easier to manage. I can train any customer using FortiGate or Palo Alto in a few days, but with Cisco, it takes much more time because the systems aren't easy to use.I would like to see integration with monitoring tools such as Nagios or BMC.The inclusion of bandwidth management features would improve this product.If there was a software-based solution for scaling up then it would be much better.The aspect of private party integration solutions could be improved.More flexibility with the dashboards is needed because some of them are not fully developed.There are some features not found in Firepower, like data loss prevention, and SSO, to have a connection between Cisco and Active Directory which was introduced on other products.

The ability to do more complicated data investigation would be a welcome addition for pros, though the functionality now gives most people what they need.In the future I would like to see simplified statistics and analytical threats.The correlation engine should have persistent and definable rules.They should work to add more built-in correlation searches and more use cases based on worldwide customer experiences. They need more ready-made use cases.The solution is much more expensive than relative competitors like ArcSight or LogRhythm. It makes it hard to sell to customers sometimes.The initial setup was complex because some of the configurations that we required needed customization.It could be easier to scale the solution if you are using it on-premise, not in the cloud.There are occasional bugs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Cisco products are always expensive, but if you can afford the price then it's a great solution.Licensing fees for this solution are $3,500 USD, and there are no additional costs.The price for additional throughput is the highest in the industry.We buy the licensing on a yearly basis, when we renew our contract. It is around $14,000.

Pricing varies based on the packages you choose and the volume of your usage.The licensing costs is around 10,000 dollars.There are additional costs associated with the integrator.My biggest complaint is the way they do pricing... You can never know the pricing for next year. Every single time you adjust to something new, the price goes up. It's impossible to truly budget for it. It goes up constantly.I hope we can increase the free license to be more than 5 gig a day. This would help people who want to introduce a POC or a demo license for the solution.

Splunk User Behavior Analytics is a behavior-based threat detection is based on machine learning methodologies that require no signatures or human analysis, enabling multi-entity behavior profiling and peer group analytics – for users, devices, service accounts and applications. It detects insider threats and external attacks using out-of-the-box purpose-built that helps organizations find known, unknown and hidden threats, but extensible unsupervised machine learning (ML) algorithms, provides context around the threat via ML driven anomaly correlation and visual mapping of stitched anomalies over various phases of the attack lifecycle (Kill-Chain View). It uses a data science driven approach that produces actionable results with risk ratings and supporting evidence that increases SOC efficiency and supports bi-directional integration with Splunk Enterprise for data ingestion and correlation and with Splunk Enterprise Security for incident scoping, workflow management and automated response. The result is automated, accurate threat and anomaly detection.
