What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable feature is that you easily get adapted to standard components. So, you don't need to involve the user with interface and GUI decorations. The tool just evaluates the logs in… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us another tool for monitoring our infrastructure in a different way.

What needs improvement?

What I don't like is that you are not sure all the data is recorded. Our product is better in these areas of functionality. Splunk is quite a bit different. When you transfer some logs at the end of… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As far as pricing, you can negotiate with the company, but I'd say the price is fairly high for the product. The typical price for competing products is also quite high, so it is not necessarily bad… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use both Splunk and another solution simultaneously for somewhat different purposes.

What other advice do I have?

The advice that I would give to companies considering this type of solution is that choosing the right solution all depends on what you want to do. I'd say Splunk makes more sense if you only want to… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to create custom dashboards is one of the best features and that's typically why most people deploy Splunk. Users can create dashboards for just about anything. The solution has been… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The solution brings all the events into one platform so that you don't have to hunt down multiple sources to figure out what's going on.

What needs improvement?

The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is paid on a yearly basis.

What other advice do I have?

We're a Splunk partner and reseller. Typically, the solution is on-prem for the most part because it requires a very heavy lift in storage and the storage is very expensive. Most companies deploy it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We work with a few different solutions. As a SIEM, there are many other solutions out there and which is best really depends upon what the company wants to achieve. As a logging server, there really… more»

What is most valuable?

In terms of the application performance security, application performance tooling has been a key factor for me using Splunk. We are also looking into options, like other third parties or even open-source tools that help the capturing the application performance, fine-tuning, which leads to the security aspect.

What needs improvement?

We haven't faced any problems yet. It's working as expected. We are using the enterprise-grade, strong products and we're just paying a lot for it right now. People intend to go for automation. We are following the works process and we are inculcating the engineers to ensure everything is automated. Whatever needs to be mitigated, has to be followed up on ticketing tools, this tool would come in… more»

What other advice do I have?

As a newbie, I wouldn't prefer Splunk. The reason being that it's a completely enterprise-grade solution. As a startup, you don't implement Splunk for the first time. We'd put an open-source product. With us, we have many of the Italian products, which proves to be a good open-source solution. In the end, people intend to go for enterprise support for the vulnerability patching, report generation… more»

What is most valuable?

The team that is using this product is using it for reporting. Apparently it is just to have more detailed reports about certain specific activities.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am sure the pricing is reasonable or we would not continue to use the product in such a minimal capacity. We are fine with the price of the product and we are happy that it does what we need it to do.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate it at around an eight. We are using it for six years now and renewing the support and the license. So you can say that we are at least reasonably happy with the product and do not have to replace it. To make the product rate higher they would have to match some of the capabilities of other products within the same… more»

What is most valuable?

I haven't really used the solution too much, so I'm not sure if I can speak to the best features on the solution.

What needs improvement?

Without having used the solution too much, I don't really have any suggestions for feature improvement. It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten. I don't believe we have a business relationship with Splunk, but we do have a large number of licenses with them.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did compare a few other tools, however, we are using Splunk because that is what the customer preferred. They made the decision after I described this solution and a few other tools to them.

What is most valuable?

It's only the monitoring solution that we are using. I'll find that to be a great feature.

What needs improvement?

Splunk would be better if some tools were integrated to be able to take action on security or network concerns. People in the IT field are looking for a single tool that can do everything. Not separate tools for monitoring and fixing.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Splunk Insights for Infrastructure at a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I need a tool that can deal with all the security solutions, that will find security monitoring compliance requirements. So, I'll stick to BigFix over Splunk, because I'm not that big a fan of Splunk, to be honest. Apart from monitoring, in BigFix you can mitigate the issues, mitigate what the… more»

What is most valuable?

The Add data feature lets you gather any type of log and easily analyze it. This is easier than using other solutions like ArcSight or Elasticsearch for example. We can use these logs with our data processes to explain our situation.

What needs improvement?

In the next release, I would like to see more integration with other solutions. For example, Juniper, ManageEngine, PAM (Privileged Access Monitoring), and Wallix.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used ArcSight and Elasticsearch.

What other advice do I have?

I am not certified with Splunk, but I am a system administrator. I passed the fundamentals one and two. This is a very good solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature in this solution is the log searching. The search indexing is very fast. Mainly I like the reporting in this solution.

What needs improvement?

The price of this solution is very high and can be improved. This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an expensive solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used multiple solutions, and I find that searching the logs in this solution is very quick.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good product, but my advice is that you have to be trained in order to use it, otherwise you will be lost. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
