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.

SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server

SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server really thrives in environments where the network is small enough that high scalability or log analysis are not required. I would avoid using this in a network where automated log analysis is required, and would look more at a SIEM or something in that same vein. It should also be noted (and hopefully managers or product purchasers are reading) that this isn't the same as a SIEM, and therefore isn't a suitable alternative to one -- though it is great for what it is.

Kiwi Syslog has the best usability of any syslog server. While not being able to offer the most features, the ones it does have are intuitive and easy to work with. Everything that it has is where you think it should be. If you can't find it in the menus, it doesn't exist.

SolarWinds support is pretty decent, but I wouldn't rate them much higher than that. They do a good job in most cases, but sometimes they just tell you that "that's how it is," and provide no solution. Other than that, they are pretty helpful. Also worth mentioning is their "Thwack" forums, which has an excellent user community.

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.

I've not had any other interaction with other Syslog servers. The main reason for that is that Kiwi works outstandingly well at what it does. Simply put, I believe this product is a staple in the IT industry and will remain as such as long as they keep the tool current and improve it in the future.
