Pros
To add workers and even collectors is pretty easy.The seamless integration with FortiGate is the solution's most valuable aspect.Both the collecting logs and duo correlation are valuable features for us.The solution is very stable. It's run for years without the need to do anything except, add new patches when they are available, which are always a good idea to install.Analytics is the most valuable feature. The business service summaries in the dashboards and the correlations for the SIEM are also valuable features.The most valuable feature is the dashboard. CMDB database collects data from a lot of pre-configured devices.The interface is very easy to use. The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor.It gives us the opportunity to generate notifications based upon rules that get triggered, and the rules could be specific to PCI, HIPAA, GIBA, NIST, and so forth.

With good domain knowledge, one can build almost anything. If you throw in Alert Manager or an integration with ServiceNow. Then, you have your own SIEMOur clients are easily able to modify and evolve their implementations.The initial setup is really straightforward. It's one of the easiest installations.It helps us uncover bottlenecks in the network.it can explain to management about what kind of traffic is visiting the network. It can also explain other traffic coming in and out, along with protecting against malware.The most valuable feature of Splunk is the log monitoring.It can log more logs than other solutions. It's a good way to troubleshoot problems.We can present to our management in real time the security of the batch management for the PCs, security regarding the network equipment. We're currently working in the Azure Cloud project, so we can send any logs from the cloud to Splunk. We can monitor them and we can present to the managers and customers. It's a very good solution for reporting. We use Splunk for reporting and monitoring of any solution in the company.

Cons
The dashboard needs to improve.When compared with some competitors, in terms of performance, the CPU and RAM requirements and the capability of coordination with development all need some improvement.The support of the product changed recently, and I don't think it's for the better. They should work to improve the support they offer to clients.They could work on their documentation. If there's anything about the solution that needs improvement, it's that. For example, documentation already is on a very high level but specifically on the CLI there are tons of features which can be fine-tuned and thousands of commands are very difficult to document. If they could make this easier, it would improve the overall solution.Their product support, in general, is not that great. The product support is in the same ecosystem. Their support is improving but it's not that great.vvvThe performance can be improved. Sometimes it takes a long time to fetch data.The nodes on our network did not comply with the SIEM solution. They use a different format parking log.The backup and recovery process for this solution needs improvement.
