Cons
"The UI for this solution could be improved. It is very hard to find what you are looking for.""BigPanda attempts a little of everything and fails at most.""The solution could improve by having better integration.""BigPanda can improve the correlations. We didn't see any big value. It is still good at the same event deduplication, event processing, and ticket creation, but I was more looking at event analysis and event correlation. In that area, it is still no big difference between the other solutions on the market. All of them, are in the same immature stage.""Lacks sufficient dashboard features.""The observability can be enriched with regards to infrastructure and the application-integrated environment. The dashboard and reports could be improved."

More BigPanda Cons →

"Splunk needs to be able to hold more days of data. At the moment it only holds three months of data.""Their technical support sucks.""The UI can be improved. Dashboards and reports can be better in terms of graphics.""It needs integration with a configuration management solution.""The implementation and the scanning of the logs can be difficult.""From the commercial point of view, they have to bring down their costs.""We find that the maintenance process could be a lot better.""I would like Splunk to add more integration. QRadar has many indications with more products than Splunk."

    Overview

    BigPanda Autonomous Operations platform is a cutting-edge solution that helps IT Ops, NOC and DevOps teams detect, investigate, and resolve IT incidents faster and more easily than ever before. Powered by Open Box Machine Learning, BigPanda correlates IT noise into insights, automates incident management, and unifies fragmented IT operations.

    BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform increases the ease with which IT administrators are able to both manage their systems and respond to issues that arise. It combines machine learning and automation, which not only provide administrators with reliable suggestions concerning future issues that may arise, but also allows for certain tasks to be assigned to the system itself. These allow organizations to save both time and resources that can be dedicated to more critical tasks.

    BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform possesses a simplified and unified user interface, enabling users to manage the solution from one place. The UI allows users to view and manage all of the information and controls that IT teams need to be able to easily access, providing a level of visibility that ensures users will be able to view all of their system’s most up-to-date and critical information at any time that they wish.

    Benefits of BigPanda Autonomous Operations Platform

    Some the benefits of using BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform include:

    • The ability to autonomously detect and respond to IT issues. BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations software autonomously searches for and detects issues. When found, its level-zero feature can then handle elementary tasks such as threat prioritization, which would otherwise require a dedicated team to handle. The solution can be adapted to meet your organization’s specific requirements.
    • The ability to receive new threat suggestions based on historical data. Armed with this knowledge, BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations’s machine learning algorithm makes reliable predictions of issues that might come up in the future.
    • The ability to manage BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform and view both real-time and historical data from a single interface. BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform UI is a centralized location where all levels of your organization’s IT teams can view system data and manage situations that may arise. The data displayed on this interface is always up-to-date. IT teams have the latest relevant information available to them at all times without having to conduct a search.

    Reviews from Real Users

    BigPanda’s Autonomous Operations platform stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its centralized user interface and its ability to easily integrate with other security solutions. The centralized UI gives users the ability to clearly see all their alert data in a single location without having to search for it. Its easy integration allows administrators to augment their IT security capabilities when they find it necessary to do so.

    PeerSpot user Larry C., the principal engineer in charge of site operations for a tech vendor, notes this benefit when he writes, "Alert aggregation was the primary requirement. BigPanda pulls all this together into a single UI for us, allowing us to see related alerts grouped together into an incident, and enables us to easily create a JIRA ticket and Slack channel to manage an issue."

    Another PeerSpot user, who is an independent entrepreneur in the IT environment at a tech services company, notes the flexibility of this platform when they write “BigPanda integrates well with other solutions, such as WatchGuard.”


    Splunk is a tool that provides log management, security information, and event management solutions that help organizations easily make their machine data accessible, usable, and valuable for everybody. Splunk utilizes operational intelligence to turn machine data into valuable information by monitoring and to analyze all activities. 

    Splunk is ideal for data monitoring and searching, since it correlates and indexes large volumes of data into a searchable container. This enables users to create alerts, reports, and visualizations in real time. Splunk provides an in-depth, real-time view of the health and performance of all layers of your tech stack so you can optimize your system’s performance by proactively detecting errors and quickly fixing them.

    These days, it is becoming more and more difficult to maintain a strong security posture. Cyber attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated, and attackers have access to more entrance points. By implementing Splunk’s threat intelligence tools, you can modernize your security operations in any setting or framework, making your corporate growth more effective and flexible. The advanced visibility that Splunk provides, allows security teams to quickly detect and remove malicious threats in their environment. 

    Some of the benefits of using Splunk include:

    • Complete visibility into your environment: With Splunk, you can break down data silos and get actionable insights from data sent from multi-cloud and on-premises deployments.
       
    • Multi-environment troubleshooting: Detect and remedy problems fast with real-time, complete visibility and insight into the performance of your entire IT environment.

    • Advanced threat detection: Protect your organization from threats with Splunk’s advanced machine learning, security analytics, and threat intelligence tools that provide a sophisticated alert system to help shorten triage times and raise true positive rates.

    • Access to updated security information: Stay on top of new and emerging threats from automatic security content updates delivered directly from the Splunk Threat Research Team.

    • Multiple deployment options: Splunk has flexible deployment options. It can be deployed on the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid - depending on your organization’s needs.

    • Automated insights: Splunk’s AI-driven insights can help you predict problems by applying multiple conditions, thresholds, and complex rules. The solution’s built-in data science capabilities automatically reduce background noise and speed up error resolution times.

    • Multiple integration options: Splunk seamlessly integrates with many devices and operating systems, including:

      • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
      • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
      • Microsoft Azure
      • NewRelic

    Reviews from Real Users

    Splunk stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its flexible search query tools and its strong AI capabilities.

    A Solutions Consultant at a tech services company notes, “It provides a lot of analytics with the underlying AI engine, and it is a lot easier than other solutions. There are some products that do automated AI-based detection and drawing up charts, but for network monitoring and all of the monitoring aspects, it is quite a nice tool. It is very convenient for business users because they get more or less a lot of data readily available. If you're familiar with the Splunk query language, you can pretty much do whatever you want.”
