About Splunk Enterprise

The Splunk Enterprise platform allows users to process and index most forms of data in their native format. It includes data indexing tools, which enable users to locate specific data across large data sets. The software is designed to serve users with limited technical expertise. A key selling point is the platform's scalability, which allows it to grow with the amount of data it is needed to process; up to at least 100 terabytes per day. To ensure users always have access to their data, even in the event of a system disruption, this platform features built-in failover and disaster recovery capabilities. Deployment options include both on-premise and SaaS (Software as a Service). Subscription pricing is based on the amount of data indexed per day, and pricing decreases as the amount of data indexed increases. There are perpetual and term license pricing options as well.

Splunk Enterprise, not just a SIEM

We have been using Splunk Enterprise, ES, ITSI, and other Splunk parts for 6+ years in production. This has helped us reduce staff in some cases, increase response time in most cases, and allow non-IT teams to get data and metrics in a fast efficient way.

Pros

The versatility is amazing. The same data in logs, such as IIS, can be used for Security, Application performance, and even error handling. This allows us to use one log to help multiple teams. This is just one example.

Cons

Start up takes someone who has had some training. While searching and output is easy, its the onboarding of custom apps that takes the know how.

Pros

It allows me to bring a lot of information into one friendly view. It's a great security audit tool.

Cons

It has limited functionality. It is a very memory intensive system. It does not integrate with Lennox.

Splunk is a great solution for SIEM and also for monitoring your infrastructure

We needed a way to monitor our internal environment and start to be more proactive with issues, so we started sending all of our logs to Splunk and we we able to get insights we did not know we needed. It is a great solution and they are constantly innovating.

Pros

Splunk makes it easy to search through various data including logs. In the past I have had to pour through logs in order to find the one lines among the 100 of thousands of lines. Splunk allows me to search through those logs in a matter of seconds vs the hours it used to take.

Cons

Most of enterprise setup is done through the command line. It would be nice to have cluster configuration (index creation) as part of the UI.
