Good file integrity monitoring and change tracking tools but the knowledge base needs to be available online

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution primarily for real-time log analytics. We also use the NNT Log Tracker and Change Tracker for the FIM functionality.

Pros and Cons

  • "The FIM features in the Change Tracker and the Log Tracker are the most valuable."
  • "I would like to see the integration of AI technology, so rather than manually monitoring the logs, the tool will understand it and take care of it."

What other advice do I have?

We are using the second most recent version of this solution. I would recommend using NNT over ManageEngine. The Change Tracker tool is very good. It will reduce your overall workload. The FIM tool allows you to understand the activities and the NNT tool takes care of automatically giving you the actual and planned changes. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Works well straight out of the box and is fairly easy to implement

What is our primary use case?

I use it for infrastructure management and also day in day out for the monitoring of firewalls and our logs. I also use it as my security operation center.

Pros and Cons

  • "The log management has helped to improve my organization."
  • "There isn't good security integration when it comes to cybersecurity. The correlation of logs isn't so simple."

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product straight out of the box. It's a fairly easy solution to implement. It's ideal for small to medium-sized businesses. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

A stable, scalable solution with comprehensive dashboards and helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to monitor Cyber Mission databases. I create the diagrams to create an architecture that is then implemented. However, creating these diagrams are for my own learnings since these implementations are usually already available in the cloud office logs.

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability of the solution is amazing because it can collect a lot of data and you can have your own structure to monitor this data."
  • "An area of improvement would be the licensing of the solution. They need a free license, which would allow faster lead times."

What other advice do I have?

It is important to define different guidelines to integrate Splunk in development, QA, and production deployments. Additionally, define the applications that will be used and the configuration of the databases to collect the data. If this is not done, there will be a lot of issues due to, for example, master access or permissions to use the database collector and blocks.
