If you are switching from Splunk to QRadar SIEM or just curious to see the additional functionality QRadar has in comparison to Splunk, you should check out the new free Splunk to QRadar SIEM App that enables forwarding of raw data from Splunk Enterprise or the Splunk Universal Forwarder to QRadar for analysis. Once the QRadar app connects to Splunk forwarders, a list of data sources are displayed to choose which logs are forwarded to QRadar. This QRadar app modifies the appropriate Splunk configuration files, and Splunk then performs the forwarding of the selected event logs to QRadar. The QRadar SIEM then parses the data from Splunk the same way it parses other data sources, and preexisting auto detection settings work as expected.
