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.

Due to the strength, robustness, and cost of a solution like this, I believe it is best suited for large businesses and enterprises. While a medium sized business would find value for sure, this system is not for the faint of heart or pocketbook. Qradar is well suited for environments with a lot of incoming data where manual analysis might not be an option.

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.

  • Rule creation is intuitive and fast which helps during emergency situations.
  • Platform maintenance is very light while the appliance has nearly flawless uptime.
  • Report generation is very functional and efficient.

Cons

  • Overall the product and service works well and addresses all our key requirements so we have no real negatives to share.
No photo available
  • There is a steep learning curve compared to other platforms. Qradar is incredibly powerful but does require some homework.
  • There is a glaring lack of threat feed utilization outside of STIXX/TAXII which remains very limited at this time.
  • May require a considerable amount of tuning during deployment with very little "out of the box" offense information.

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.

With IBM supplying this solution, you're inherently getting the globally recognized IBM support environment as well. As an enterprise solution, Qradar is among stiff competition but the reliability and availability make it a cut above the rest. While I also recommend AlienVault for small-medium sized businesses, there aren't many others that afford the same experience and piece of mind.
