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.

Tenable SecurityCenter

SecurityCenter is definitely the juggernaut of the industry. You don't see many shops that are not using Nessus and or SecurityCenter. As a pen tester, I do not judge shops that use Nessus as a catch all, as there are a lot of things you can get hyper focused on and a tool like this helps you see things you may have missed.

Pros

  • It has a really intelligent system that it can realize any illegal activities from the outside.
  • It can be designed by you. Whatever you want, you can do or change anything that you made before.
  • High security 24/7. Just feeling safe.

  • Network sweeps
  • Network/host auditing (NIST, DoD, etc)
  • Vulnerability Scans

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.

  • Bulky - does not scale easily
  • Lack of detailed error logs for scan issues
  • Lack of stripped client (piggybacking off the bulky) - could use a mini/portable client like nmap

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.

From time to time I take a contract in which I am building a network which includes either a SOC or a compliance shop (lots of this occurring now with the 800-171 compliance push). In many cases businesses like to take the cheap way out. We'll install other lesser known vulnerability scanners and or vulnerability scanners like Openvas. While they all get the job done, they do not pack the power that Nessus/ SecurityCenter packs

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.

  • SecurityCenter has saved me from missing major items on tests. I would fixate on something, spend too much time on one item. Nessus broke the monotony and ensured that I didn't miss findings
