One of our customers, Burcham Hills, chose Blumira’s cloud SIEM over Sophos and Splunk for the high level of support.

“I was looking for something new and different from the Splunks and AlienVaults of the world. A solution that focused on the user experience and security relationship.” – John Hwee, Director of IT, Duraflame
