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.

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.”
