Alert Logic Cloud Insight

When you start to learn the software, it looks like it is so complicated and unknown, but after that, you realize that it is not actually as hard as you think. You just need to give more attention to the program and you can understand easily how to use it. At some point, vulnerabilities cannot be solved so, in this case, you may have some concern if something is happening in the system or not, but actually, there is nothing happening.

FireMon

FireMon is a great tool for any organization looking to audit their firewalls. At a glance, it can be difficult to tell where rules may be redundant or even unnecessary but FireMon does a great job picking these out and showing them on the dashboard. The revision history is also great if multiple users make changes to your firewalls to see what might have changed and for troubleshooting.

Cons

  • I would like to see voice assistance when I am creating new things for my environment
  • When you are creating an external ID, it has some delay at times.
  • I think the price is too expensive. I would like to have a decreased price.

  • While you can evaluate potential changes to firewall rules, you can not implement the rules from FireMon.
  • The GUI is easy to navigate, but learning where to go for the useful features takes a little practice.
  • While the base product has reports for analyzing vulnerabilities, a separate license is required to get the full benefit.

For the most part, using the tool is straight forward. Some of the menus could use some work on usability.

Because I've been having issues where FireMon's development team is required and the answers are slow and not always successful.

Alternatives Considered

I was using Alert Logic Insight for myself to improve my skills and ability to it. My organization was not happy using our previous website security program so I recommended for them to use this software. It has been more than 1 year and still, they are using this program without having any problem so far.

Lower cost with the needed functionality we were looking for. Other products may have had more functionality but the cost was much higher.

Return on Investment

  • It is pretty complicated to understand for beginner levels when you start to use it.
  • The product is really secure and reliable for any organization.
  • Best side of this software is that it is not like other security programs. Unlike them, this software is stronger and has 24/7 security.

  • The primary benefit has been reducing the labor of analysis of rules in both audit and administration. Tasks that took hours now take minutes.
