LogRhythm vs. Splunk

Which SIEM is right for you?

So you’re looking for new security information and event management (SIEM) technology for your organization — that’s great! But it’s also a big decision that will affect security in your organization for years to come.

Learn more about the major differences when it comes to choosing LogRhythm vs. Splunk.

Overpaying for Your SIEM?

You need a security solution that scales to fit your needs — but doesn’t outgrow budget. That’s why it’s important to take SIEM cost, functionality, and return on investment into consideration. Schedule a demo today with a LogRhythm expert to compare SIEM prices and ensure you get the most out of your security investment.

Whether it’s LogRhythm or Splunk, you need to ensure your organization is secure and your data can easily tell you what you need to know

But when you are making a major investment in SIEM technology, research is essential to make the right choice for your unique organization. No SIEM is one-size-fits-all, after all.

So how does LogRhythm differ from Splunk?

The LogRhythm Difference

1. No Contract Surprises

Your team needs to stay focused on protecting your company — armed with the visibility and data you need to do so effectively. You shouldn’t have to worry about how much data you’re consuming and how data fluctuation will reflect on your overall bill.

With LogRhythm, you can scale with confidence. We are the only SIEM technology provider to offer a true unlimited data plan. Pay one price (and only one price) for your entire contract. Protect your entire network — even if your data (and users, applications, and systems) changes from one year to another.

“[Splunk] becomes very expensive if you have huge logs and if the logs keep on increasing, so will the price to use this tool.”

– Ram Chuura

“Speaking of prices, [LogRhythm] has good value for the money. Security is one of the most important things today, and we are focused on offering safe and high-quality services — we can do it efficiently with this program.”

– Mike C, MSc Data Management and Cyber Security

2. Built for Security

We know your job isn’t easy — many of us have been in the trenches or managed a SOC previously. In fact, LogRhythm was built by two guys who knew there just had to be a better way to build a SIEM solution — all the way back in 2003. And over time, that laser focus on innovating on security analytics, analyst workflows, automation and more has been unwavering.

“LogRhythm are that rarest of vendors, a company where the employees live security and are passionate about their product — working with them is a pleasure.” –

Commercial Director

“LogRhythm does better event classification than any other SIEM by far. My team typically drops all classification schemes from default installations of SIEMs and then rebuilds them from scratch. I can actually use LogRhythm event classifications in rules without excessive partial matches or correlating unwanted events.”

– Project Manager, Energy & Utilities

“From the first day, LogRhythm gave us useful information. That was something Splunk could not do.”

Michael Cole, CISO

3. Get Value from Your Investment — Fast

With more than 1,650 prebuilt out-of-the-box modules and rules, you can literally turn on your deployment and get value from it right away. No rigorous training or previous expertise required. And with curated security content continuously being developed by our LogRhythm Labs team, that value grows every month — without any additional cost to your organization.

“Switching from Splunk to LogRhythm saved us $50,000 in costs per year — and that number is coming directly from our CFO.” 

CISO at First Financial

“Out of the box, the platform delivers an extensive amount of capabilities and correlation rules that align with today’s threats. The automated responses and SOAR workflows can deliver an increased level of maturity to any sized organization.”

Vice President, IS Global Security

4. Integrated Automation to Make Your SOC More Efficient

Rather than bolted on, LogRhythm’s security orchestration, automation, and response solution — RespondX — is seamlessly integrated into our NextGen SIEM Platform. You’ll be able to automate manual security tasks and advance your investigative capabilities.

“We have improved our response times to alarms at least 5–6 times, to the point where we can consider ourselves an agile IT security team.”

Ivan M., IT Security Specialist
