Alert Logic Log Correlation and Analysis

Alert Logic is ideally placed to support and protect cloud infrastructure and services such as AWS hosted services. It is less appropriate for platform as a service as this would be addressed by the provider in question. It would also be ideally suited to on-premise and hybrid cloud scenarios to protect services from attacks and breaches.

AlienVault USM

AlienVault USM Anywhere is a great SIEM and if you need to deploy a SaaS solution then it is suited very well. It works very well for us being 100% AWS and integrates well with our toolset and AWS features. The Open Threat Intelligence (OTX) is perfect for providing context on events and feeding our incident response processes.

Pros

  • Alert Logic provides very technical solutions to address security risks. However much of the benefit is from a human level understanding of the threats seen.
  • As a company, they are profiling thousands of companies and are better able to predict threats such as denial of service attacks and warn organisations ahead of time.

  • AlienVault enables integration with external technologies, thereby broadening its scope and possibilities.
  • AlienVault has a dashboard customization and reporting scheme that makes it flexible to query your data, allowing you to model the tool according to your needs.
  • AlienVault will make you forget the need to consult some information on AWS Cloudtrail. It extracts the data from there and delivers in a much more efficient way.
  • With a single tool you can monitor your cloud and on-premises environment.

Cons

  • Overall the product and service works well and addresses all our key requirements so we have no real negatives to share.

  • Vulnerability Scanner reporting: The reporting from the integrated scanner (OpenVAS) are really difficult to read. They could have done a better job by scraping the report or creating a custom report from the data of the scan. However, leaving the default report template from OpenVAS makes the report somewhat useless.
  • Sometimes the local integration fails because of the scope of the tool. Let me elaborate on that: The OpenVAS scanner has certificated that expire within a year, and that makes the USM fail scans if you don't renew certificates yourself. They should have made them last at least 10 years. Same with Nagios, sometimes the integration fails and one doesn't know why unless you jailbreak it and find out in the logs for sure.
  • They do not provide a standalone installation of the product, because they modified so much the Linux distribution, that it must always be deployed as a virtual machine or appliance, but not on your own server.

Almost all functions are intuitive, custom logging is not very easy to configure.

I have contacted support many times and every time they addressed the issue and continued until it was resolved. The product is solid, so the overall operation is trouble free.

It required us to make a lot of changes and use a decent amount of manpower in order to implement the software.

Alternatives Considered

There are alternatives some of which have a greater overhead and require more in-house technical skills. Alert Logic provide a full service so for us this was a better solution.

We have used some other Intrusion Detection Systems, and made other attempt at log file aggregation and event management, but AlienVault brings these tools and more together under one appliance.
