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.

IBM QRadar

1, IBM QRadar is suited for a scenario where there is limited administrative support. 2. Where there are multiple log sources3. Where there are multiple clients accessing from several locations4. Highly secure sites / Sites where security is very important5. Can't think of any scenario where it is less appropriate - maybe a single home system

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.

  • It allows us to have visibility to potential problems both on premise and in the cloud which was key as we have become a hybrid consumer.
  • It has automated monitoring which has allowed us to see threats faster and also allowed us to be proactive.
  • By having over 20,000 employees, QRadar has also allowed us to be aware of internal threats that are brought into the company by unsuspecting employees.

Cons

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

  • Reporting configuration is still too convoluted
  • Coalescing is too tied down. I recommend an ability to adjust, with an appropriate limit, the fields used: in general, by log source type, and/or by log source.

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.

Splunk is more of a log manager.
