Splunk Enterprise Security

Is it possible to use Splunk Enterprise Security with the free trial version of Splunk Enterprise to test if it meets our requirements for SIEM?

Hi,

I need some clarifications on Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security.

I would like to implement SIEM with Splunk Enterprise Security. I came to know that we have to get a licensed version of Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security license cost.

First we would be trying to implement SIEM with Splunk Enterprise Security in a Linux Development environment with the free trial version of Splunk Enterprise. I have one question here. With the free trial version of Splunk Enterprise (500 MB/day) which is valid for 60 days, is it possible to use premium solution app (Splunk Enterprise Security)?

if Splunk Enterprise Security met all our requirements for SIEM, then we would proceed with the purchased version of Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise security in Production Linux environment.

Could you please clarify as early as possible?

If you want to evaluate Splunk

best to use the free online sandbox
here:

As we are having security information available in the logs, we cant use free online sandbox trial of Splunk Enterprise Security. Is there any other trial version of Splunk Enterprise Security available?

At this point it's best to work with sales, as that is the only way to get a PoC of Splunk Enterprise Security. You already have a developer license for Splunk Enterprise, based on the email you received. You can get a developer license for Splunk Enterprise Security, but remember that developer licenses are meant for developing content, not evaluating the product.

Best way to do is
- request for a developer license. Your splunk will get license
- Speak to your partner or Splunk sales to get a copy of Splunk Enterprise Security

Ensure your test/dev system has enough resources to run Enterprise Security (min 16GB RAM)

this developer license is only applicable for Development environment right?

If we want to implement SIEM in production , then we have to purchase license?

If I want to request for developer license, where can I request it?

For developer License, can you share the pricing details?

Instead of using free trial version of Splunk Enterprise , you are asking me to use developer license for Splunk Enterprise . so that only we can get the copy of Splunk Enterprise security. Right?

With the free trial version of splunk enterprise , we cant get copy of Splunk enterprise security.Am I right?

Kindly clarify my above queries

Developer license is free. You just need to request it. It gives you 10GB free indexing per day
Key advantages are
- Every 6 months you can renew for free
- You can have full clustering capability with this license
- Full Splunk Enterprise stack options available (eg alerting, sh clustering etc)

Splunk Enterprise Security is NOT free. I'm not sure how you can get it. We get it from our partner for trial purposes, but I don't know how you work. May be have a word with Sales team for Splunk Enterprise Security
