We performed a comparison between LogRhythm SIEM and Splunk Enterprise Security based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The tool has key features like operability. It will alert the admins whenever a device is onboarded."
"The features I found valuable with the Sumo Logic Security solution are the search option and the ability to customize the search for the information in the logs."
"The most valuable features of Sumo Logic Security are the rules, use cases, and ease of use. Additionally, the integration is straightforward and good GUI."
"Technical support is always great."
"This solution has improved our organization in many different ways. The biggest benefit is being able to view all information in one dashboard instead of having to look at several different applications and dashboards. I can see information across our entire environment and every aspect of our network."
"LogRhythm NextGen SIEM covers all our primary security analysis needs. It makes it easier for us to analyze threats and improves our response times. It's a versatile platform that performs queries fast compared to other SIEM solutions."
"The user interface is good."
"The correlation engine is extremely valuable because it uses machine learning to process information from the central manager and identifies issues in the network."
"LogRhythm NextGen SIEM is customizable, simple to manage, and there are many features. The solution does not require an expert to be able to use it, anyone can use it."
"It's very easy to create the correlation rules with LogRhythm, and there are some advanced features like SIEM and UEBA, which are also very valuable."
"LogRhythm's GUI is easy to explore. We also like other features, such as its integration with other security solutions, log correlation, and the deployment of use cases."
"The most useful feature that I've found so far is the search function. I like all the different ways you're able to search through metadata and the different ways you're able to correlate or search through logs to find out what's going on."
"Splunk would be my choice for the presentation layer because it comes with inbuilt reports and a dashboard that you can customize."
"The scalability is good."
"Splunk incorporates a lot of elements that help to reduce security risks. For it to reach certain compliance, we need to have some security insight. Splunk is a very good SIEM, it’s a top solution, but the best feature is its cost of visibility. We have all the most important features to detect vulnerabilities or risks."
"The additional vendors we've brought on board, particularly the elastic, have been quite beneficial."
"The varied prebuilt feature is the most valuable because it ensures that we have complete coverage over all of the key questions."
"Great platform with user-friendly interface and GUI."
"We can easily configure things as required in relation to our use cases."
"It is very easy to use and integrate. There are connectors for every technology."
"The integration with multiple sources could be better."
"In my opinion, this solution has a steep learning curve and requires practice if users to be able to use this tool very efficiently."
"From the network segmentation side, there is some discrepancy in log onboarding. The tool needs to improve direct API integrations, login integration, native login integration, etc."
"The API integration in Sumo Logic Security could improve. There are delayed connections or they stop and then automatically start. Having a seamless log collection would be beneficial."
"NextGen SIEM's integration with other software is good but could be improved."
"The customer support system is time-consuming."
"We've had issues with scaling and local support."
"LogRhythm's SOAR and NDR features don't stack up well against competitors. maybe integrating theme functionality as the other do. But in general, it's okay."
"There is room for improvement with separate running sources or better integration."
"In terms of blind spots, we are looking for more improvements since we don't have visibility over everything."
"One area for improvement in LogRhythm NextGen SIEM is that it's a Windows-based tool, and I feel it should be on the Linux operating system instead. Another area for improvement in the tool is the UI. There should be minor changes in the UI to make it better, though I like the dashboards in LogRhythm NextGen SIEM."
"The reporting on the dashboard should be improved from a management perspective. It would be helpful if they adjusted the colors and the presentation to make things clearer and easier to read."
"Splunk is more expensive than other solutions."
"Its user interface for everything other than the charts can be improved. Some parts of it can be simplified a bit, such as when importing documents that have the network traffic. When you're going through the information about the network traffic, you have to have the expertise, but even if a program is supposed to be for IT support, it is good to make it user-friendly because it gets easier to train people. When something goes wrong, the more difficult a program is in terms of UI, the harder it is to fix the issue."
"From the commercial point of view, they have to bring down their costs."
"You do need a lot of training and certification with this product."
"Technical support needs to be more responsive."
"The threat management part is still lagging. There are some gaps in threat management. Other vendors have built-in threat management systems, but Splunk lacks the threat management component in its portal. The UEBA and everything else is perfect, but it lacks a unified threat intelligence and management part."
"There can be a bit of complexity around some fields during the initial setup."
"This solution could be improved by better pricing in general and by easier installation."

Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions have been evolving for over a decade; their core functionality still acts as the most effective foundation for any organization’s technology stack. A SIEM solution enables an organization to centrally collect data across its entire network environment to gain real-time visibility into activity that may pose a risk to the organization. SIEM technology addresses threats before they become significant financial risks while simultaneously helping better manage an organization’s assets.
LogRhythm SIEM has many key features and capabilities, including:
● High-Performance Log Management: LogRhythm SIEM offers structured and unstructured search capabilities which allows users to swiftly search across an organization’s vast data to easily find answers, identify IT and security issues, and troubleshoot issues. Users can efficiently process and index terabytes of log data daily.
● Network and Endpoint Monitoring: Forensic sensors allow users to gain deep visibility into endpoint and network activity. Users can see behavioral anomalies and better respond to incidents.
● SmartResponse™ Automation: LogRhythm SIEM allows users to centrally execute pre-staged actions that automate incident investigatory tasks and responses.
● Automated Machine Analytics: LogRhythm SIEM's AI Engine continuously analyzes all collected security incidents and forensic data. Security teams are delivered precise, real-time intelligence about risk-prioritized threats.
● Case and Security Incident Management: LogRhythm SIEM offers an integrated workflow so that threats don’t slip through the cracks. Collaboration tools help centrally manage and track investigations.
● User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA): Embedded deterministic UEBA monitoring helps protect against insider threats.
● Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR): LogRhythm SIEM includes our embedded SOAR solution to increase efficiency and higher-quality incident response with low mean time to response (MTTR).
Benefits to Using LogRhythm SIEM
