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

I think the product is well suited for an environment with multiple, complex firewall deployments. Environments that are highly regulated and a have need for automation and reporting, would gain value. However, if you are a small company, or the deployment/environment is cookie cutter, then I don't think you would be able to justify the cost.... it's not cheap!

  • Security Manager provides a graphical map of your infrastructure and allows you to do a path analysis through the firewall infrastructure.
  • Security Manager allows you to view every change made on the specified device. This includes the day, date, time, and user who made the change. You can drill down to detailed information concerning exactly what the change was.
  • Security Manager allows you to view all firewall policies including Security Rules, Objects, NAT Rules and more.

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 FireMon provides great reports, the reports that we utilize often can not be edited. We would like to see the reports in an editable format allowing us to remove content that is not relevant or add relevant content to the report for presentation to management.
  • A recent change was made in a update to Security Manager that caused problems with the LDAP authentication of users. This change was not adequately communicated to us before the update and took several sessions with Technical Support to correct. A better job of updating the customer of major changes is required.

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

FireMon technical support is awesome! They respond quickly to our requests and they are well trained and very knowledgeable about the tool. Some issues have to be referred to the development team, but technical support largely provides solutions for any issues that we may have.

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.

Once I learned how to properly query within FireMon, I found FireMon to be an easier application to use and provided more detailed information than that of the other security products used. My organization invested in FireMon and moved away from using the other two security applications, therefore I was required to begin using FireMon but am glad that this change occurred

You can add more data collectors to scale. One issue is that you cannot have multiple data collectors assigned to one device. For example, if you have some heavy hitting firewalls, you can't have two data collectors hooked up to them in a round robin fashion. I have been advised you can accomplish this with a load balancer in front of the data collectors, but I have not looked into it yet.

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.

  • As a product distributor, we would like to introduce the add on module to the customers. In return it will help the customer a lot on optimising firewall rules and creating firewall rules to harden the firewall perimeter.
