Splunk Previous Solutions

Colt Rodgers
Infrastructure Engineer at Zirous, Inc.
We did not use a different solution before. The closest thing that we would have done to this would have been personally scraping logs reactively, which cost us roughly two to three hours per issue that arose purely through log searching and remediation. View full review »

DevOps Engineer at Amplify
Before Splunk, we used Kibana and Elasticsearch. Sometimes, with them, logs wouldn't even be there. We have received an infinite time reduction there. We couldn't use what we had before, so Splunk being there and working does a lot. View full review »

Yes, ArcSight. We switched because of how slow the support can be with HPE sometimes and also because Splunk is simpler to use, is more data oriented, and is more adapted for business security use cases. View full review »

I have dabbled with LogRythm and ArcSight and they are both OK, but Time-To-Value is WAY shorter with Splunk, IMHO. View full review »

* AlienVault * LogRhthym * ArcSight * QRadar I've used a whole bunch of different solutions. For a SIEM based solution, they are more purpose-built for that function. Where Splunk is purpose-built for a general logging and data capture solution so you'd be able to capture a lot of different information. View full review »

Security Architect at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We were not able to get the value we needed from the previous solution. It was too difficult or complex. With Splunk, we can do things we want and things we have not even dreamed of yet. View full review »

I previously used LogRhythm. I found this tool particularly difficult to use. It was more rigid in its normalization of data. View full review »

Project Manager at Idemitsu Oil & Gas
Up until we trialed Splunk we did not have any solution. We used Splunk because we don't have anything to monitor our system. I contacted our local vendor in Vietnam, and they suggest using the trial version of Splunk to see how it works in our environment. This is the main reason I trialed Splunk. We just used the trial version in our office and, since it expired, we haven't used it. View full review »

I used ELK. It was good. It is an open-source solution, but there is some complexity in configuring it, working with it. In choosing a vendor I use industry reviews to find feedback from the community that works with the solution. View full review »

Engineer at a integrator with 11-50 employees
Our clients switch from Nagios or other monitoring solutions because the other solutions were not as flexible as Splunk. With Splunk, you can do some things very programmatically. If you have a developer, you can add functionality you want and you can develop your own add-on. Another reason they switched is because of the language that's included, SPL, Splunk Programming Language. View full review »

Previously, only the service owner could see the data and he might have gone to several places to obtain it. Now, it is all in one place and easy to access. View full review »
